Transition Engineering Ideas
This page is essentially a repository for Thought Pieces. Most of the thinking is around our perception of the wicked problems, our role in society, our frustration with the slow pace of change, our response to the scientific data and what it means for the future.
The Transition Engineering hypothesis is that all engineers can take on the work of changing what is unsustainable about the systems they work on. There are no easy solutions, only a lot of changes. Change is difficult on many levels - but the first level is our own response.
This page has stories, ideas, and ways to park, unpack, and process the situation we are in so that we can start to work effectively. It also establishes a common narrative and shared understanding that we can use to quickly progress through the minefield of inaction and inertia that always exists around wicked problems.
