David Fleming's books

At a time of multiple and growing crises – ecological, political, social, economic – we are desperately in need of new and positive ideas. Ideas that offer tangible hope for a better world.

Feasta is delighted to offer the opportunity to engage with the inspirational thoughts of the late David Fleming – an original, radical thinker whose time seems to have come only after his death – in the company of the widely acknowledged expert on his work, Shaun Chamberlin.

Shaun is the editor of Fleming’s great life’s work Lean Logic: A Dictionary for the Future and How to Survive It, and produced the popular paperback version Surviving the Future: Culture, Carnival and Capital in the Aftermath of the Market Economy. He has also been involved with the Transition Towns network since its inception, co-founding Transition Town Kingston and authoring the movement’s second book, The Transition Timeline (2009).

This webinar will be heavily interactive, reflecting Fleming’s insistence on the importance of bottom-up, collective discussion of our challenging times (“Do nothing that matters without consulting a conversation”). Difficult questions for discussion are most welcome, and we will also view short clips from interviews with the entertaining Dr. Fleming.

What is a webinar?

Short for Web-based seminar, a webinar is a presentation or workshop that is transmitted over the Web using video conferencing software. A key feature of a webinar is its interactive elements: the ability to give, receive and discuss information in real-time.

All you will need is a computer with a microphone and webcam – just like when Skyping. You will receive an invite link to the webinar and simply click this to join when the event starts.

Please indicate your wish to participate as soon as possible and we will send out some advance material on Fleming and his legacy.

Please tell anyone who might be interested!
