Climate Radio presents the last in our series of four talks recorded earlier this year at the Soil Association annual conference looking at the impact of peak oil on agriculture.

This week the founder of the Transition Town movement, Rob Hopkins, relates how he has been turning to challenges of peak oil and climate change into action now for a better future. If you've not heard Rob speak before, I'd highly recommend it as he is hugely inspirational. Here he describes the thinking behind the community-led process of designing Energy Descent Action Plans and the Transition Town model which is helping 'unlock the collective genius of the community'. The original Transition Town in Totness is buzzing with creative energy and positive projects:
- an awareness raising programme (film screenings and talks)
- community "open space" days which brainstorm solutions and ideas for action
- oral history interviews - finding out what life was like with less fossil fuel from older people
- specific action groups on food, psychological aspects of change, medicine & health, the arts, energy, economics and local government
- evening classes
- bulk community purchase of solar water heating
- formation of a renewable energy services company
- local food directory
- oil vulnerability auditing for local business
- nut tree planting project
And that's after just four months...

At the end of the programme we find just enough time to squeeze in a live recording of a lightbulb moment from the Boycott Coca Cola Experience. "Everybody Suddenly Got Real" was recorded live at Club Integral in Brixton earlier this year.

Many thanks to the Soil Association and Tim Siddall (aka Boycott Coca Cola Experience) for their kind permission to broadcast this material.

Next week sees the launch of Climate Radio's new series seeking out the green shoots of our post-carbon future, "The Low Carbon Show".
