Join Activist Don Hall as he shares insights from his experience with the international Transition Movement and his book "The Regeneration Handbook" on becoming an effective agent of change in these uncertain times.
"The Regeneration Handbook" offers an abundance of insights, stories, tools, practices, and resources for experienced and aspiring changemakers to step into their full power at this time of unprecedented global crisis.

In the face of mounting environmental, economic, and social crises, Hall, a long-time activist with the international Transition Towns Movement, observes that “more and more people genuinely want to help bring about a just and regenerative future, but feel overwhelmed or don’t know where to start.” “Fortunately,” he says, “there are so many things we can do right now to make a real difference, starting wherever we are.”

According to Hall, a regenerative community might look like one where there’s an abundance of small farms and gardens, a vibrant culture and economy powered by sustainable local businesses, solar panels on every rooftop, more bikes than cars, good public transit, and plenty of spaces to gather and commune with nature. It would also be a place where people from all walks of life regularly come together to dream, discuss, and design their own destiny.

Don Hall has served in a variety of capacities throughout the Transition Towns Movement over the past 15 years and is currently Training Coordinator for the international Transition Network. Don holds a Master’s in Environmental Leadership from Naropa University, blogs at evolutionarychange.org, and lives in community in Boulder, Colorado.
