Unsustainable systems are wicked problems with no easy solutions. Transition Engineering creates surprising opportunities and innovative perspectives on downshifting unsustainable activities.
Global Association for Transition Engineering
There is Hope, but it depends on us
Transition Engineers design and carry out the projects of change that lead to the future we want. We work from a systems perspective to strategically plan changes to today's engineered systems that downshift the fossil energy they require. Transition involves the whole of society, economy, law, ecology, infrastructure, and energy and material supply chains. We use the Interdisciplinary Transition, Innovation, Management and Engineering (InTIME) Methodology to generate new opportunities through disruptive ideas. These new ideas are developed into shift projects with the mission of long-term engineering and management of the 80% fossil fuel production decline required to realize global warming mitigation targets.
Transition Engineering requires the COP21 Targets be achieved.
Transition Engineering is now covered in four textbooks, 52 peer-reviewed papers, and courses in UK, Germany, France and New Zealand. Transition Engineering has already produced innovative and surprising new technologies and projects for cities, organisations and companies.
Transition to low carbon and high regeneration happens by 100,000 projects in 100,000 places.
