A few months ago, Rob Hopkins (founder of Transition Towns globally) put out a call to all Transition Towns asking them to submit a story about some cool thing their initiative had done in their town. He wanted to create a booklet with the 21 best stories around the world to present at the COP21 Climate Summit in Paris this December – sort of a positive reminder of what’s possible and, in fact, what’s already being done around the world to create a better future and strengthen our communities. Well, TTM thought we had a pretty great story so we wrote in about the Media Free Store. Sure enough, we were one of the 21 stories selected! The book’s coming out very soon – let us know if you’d like a copy. We can get it for a discount.
In the meantime, Rob asked us to create something to introduce our story that he could post on the international Transition website to promote the book. And this adorable little video is what our cool community came up with.
