Transition in Action, Totnes 2030, an Energy Descent Action Plan

Totnes, Past Present and Future – A Visual Journey

The following photojournalism has taken some views of Old Totnes, revisited those same places with a camera, and taken the liberty of applying modern technology to show what some of these familiar sites might look like in future. The created future views show these places prepared for providing more local food, producing renewable energy, a Totnes with fewer cars, and more people active in the landscape.

  1. Outstanding ‘before-after’ photos!

    I found this visual journey from the Our World 2.0 article, and am very pleased.

    Now, this same kind of transformation needs to occur across the world…

    Thank you so much for your critical work…you’re torchbearers for a better world.

  2. Why does it say 2030is it suppose to be 2003?

      No, 2030 is the year intended. The photographs have been ‘photoshopped’ to create an idea of what the same location might look like in 2030
