Rob Hopkins is recognized globally for his grassroots work in promoting community resilience in the light of peak oil and climate change. He is the co-founder of Transition Town Totnes and the Transition Network, and author of the best-selling The Transition Handbook. Rob was the winner of the 2008 Schumacher Award, is an Ashoka Fellow and a Fellow of the Post Carbon Institute, and was named by the Independent as one of the United Kingdom’s top 100 environmentalists.
Hopkins’ new book, The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World, was published in June of 2013. His visit to Tulane will be the first event in Hopkins’ “first and last US tour,” which includes appearing as a distinguished speaker at SXSW ECO.
