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 was 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).

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