The 2009 Energy Saving Trust/Guardian ‘Green Community Hero’ award has been awarded to Rob Hopkins.
The Energy Saving Trust launched the Green Communities awards, building on its work with communities over the last few years.
The awards celebrate groups and individuals who excel in energy saving. Commenting on winning the award, Rob said that “this is actually an award for everyone out there doing Transition in communities around the world. Although these kind of things have my name written on them, they are really an acknowledgement of the incredible work the wider movement is doing.”
Writing in The Guardian about the awards in an article called “ A green trail others must now follow“, Neasa MacErlean wrote that “If Hopkins is proved correct in his environmental analysis, he could be as famous as any national, or even international, politician within a decade.”
