Tuning into the zeigeist, practising for the future means many things. In Transition media, it means setting out the culture we are forging together and showing it in all its colourful, smart and finely detailed aspects. It means listening to Tom Crompton on intrinsic values,’s Danielle Paffard on being radicalised, standing alongside indigenous peoples, foraging for scarlet mushrooms, getting to the roots of plant medicine, sharing our houses, making stuff together, getting in a seakayak and most of all getting a handle on the big ecological and social drivers that are challenging the world and ourselves in every action we take. And then doing all of this in a very different spirit. Why? Because climate change and carbon reduction frames everything that happens in this paper. Because this changes everything.
