About Author: Jake Hanson

Working to build a healthy, fun & beautiful world to flourish in the ashes of consumer society. My work with PeaceUp has connected me with more amazing and inspiring people than I could have ever anticipated before walking away from a 'safe career' in engineering. After 4 years of resistance in the activist scene, I chose to put more energy into creating alternatives. I moved to Colorado and became the first full time student and co-creator of Transition Lab, a grassroots education for local resilience powered through new economic models. I continue working with Transition Lab to explore and teach positive alternatives to a life in the traditional economy.
