It was such a delight to connect with Transitioners old and new, from far and wide, and to visit projects on the ground.
Especially the gift circle people came along, so on December 1st 2015 we opened the doors for the first sustainable flower shop in Denmark – and maybe even the world.

There are now just over six weeks until the publication of The Power of Just Doing Stuff: how local action can change the world. I thought this would be a good opportunity to tell you a bit more about it and why you might want to start building into a fever pitch of excitement.
