The Power of Just Doing Stuff: How Local Action Can Change the World by Rob Hopkins

Many of the people here on Permies are already involved in activities which make them 'Transitioners.' But in some parts of the world entire towns are
doing this and models are appearing for how to power not just one, but many schools with solar and raise serious money via Shares launched for Jo Public
to buy.

Recently there was a post on permies about the need for a coherent plan. May I suggest people take a look at the burgeoning Transition movement and who knows,
there could be a coalition. Though giving things those kind of names may not be necessary as both Permies and Transitioners make things happen on their own - individuals, families, groups - and whole areas from
Brixton in London to a raft of initiatives in Brazil.

The Power of Just Doing Stuff is a quiet, unassuming little book and an easy read. But it packs a revolutionary punch if you act on the ideas, even in a small way.
