The late historian and economist David Fleming was one of Transition's pioneers, and his compelling, entertaining, and powerfully-different vision for a post-growth society has been brought to posthumous publication by Transition author Shaun Chamberlin. Shaun hosts a conversation on Transition's engagement with the greatest challenges of our times.
Shaun Chamberlin has been involved with the Transition Network since its inception, co-founding Transition Town Kingston and authoring the movement’s second book, "The Transition Timeline." He is managing director of the Fleming Policy Centre, former chair of the Ecological Land Co-operative, and has spoken at venues ranging from Occupy camps to parliaments. In exploring the cultural narratives charting society’s course forward, he has written for or edited a diverse range of books, magazines, academic journals, and other publications, including co-authoring a significant UK All Party Parliamentary report with his close friend and regular collaborator, David Fleming.
