Rob Hopkins co-founded the Transition Movement which has spread across the world.

Here he asks why do we, as a species, do so little to prevent climate crisis and species extinction? We have many of the solutions yet we still do not act. Why?

Rob explores how Western culture is experiencing a failure of the imagination; in play, politics, health care, education, and civil society and asks, what if we found ways of unleashing our imaginations once again?

What do we need to do this? What would happen? Could this be the touch stone of global change?
