Open University Transition Films Now Embedded Here Too…

Here are those two films if you want to watch them here, although of course a visit to Creative Climate is also highly recommended.  Keen viewers will be able to see my runner beans growing in a couple of shots…

“Totnes: taking change into their own hands”.

“Brixton: Transitioning to a low-carbon economy”.

‘In Transition 1.0′ now also available on Vimeo

‘In Transition 1.0′ is now also available on Vimeo, in higher resolution than on YouTube (and with the still-missing Part 3).
