An Evolving Exploration into the Head, Heart and Hands of Energy Descent

Signing off for Christmas…

Right, that’s me done for 2010.  Time to roast some chestnuts and hang up my laptop, switch off the phone and play Monopoly with the kids.  It has, once again, been my inestimable pleasure to have shared the various goings on on this website with you over the year.  Many thanks for all your contributions and ideas and I look forward to seeing you next year to continue this fascinating exploration together.  Have a great festive season….

You play Monopoly with your kids? Presumably a local Totnes special edition? :)

Rob – have a good one!
Thanks for your energy and inspiration over the year – you have certainly perked me up when I was getting despondent…and given me some good ideas. Here is to 2011…and increased local resilience and community spirit.

Tell us more about Quest to 2030. having just been the victor in a game of monopoly with my family
( yet again) I am increasingly uncomfortable with the cut throat capitalist qualities it brings out. Never mind a Totnes version of Monopoly -it’s time someone came up with In Transition- the game- is that sort of what Quest is?

Hi Kate
It’s like an early pre transition visioning game – its interactive and cooperative
and I hope to make it generally available soon
