Adaptive Capacity

Adaptive Capacity

Details  When conditions change, the adaptive capacity is a measure of the ability to maintain essential activities and wellbeing while adjusting to the pressures for change. How would you measure the adaptive capacity of the personal transportation activity systems in a city as a function of the urban form and demographics?
The Economics of NOT Producing Oil

The Economics of NOT Producing Oil

Details  The only way carbon emissions will reduce is when oil companies produce less oil. What would the business plan look like for an oil company that reduced oil production 80% over the next 20 years?  How would they improve profits while eliminating exploration activities and shutting down production wells and refineries?

 This page has active projects that are looking for participants and Transition Engineers. 

 

Transition the Oil Industry

Transition the Oil Industry

Details  The Ultimate Shift Project
At the 2018 Convergence we undertook a brainstorm on massive transformational change. We used the Matrix Game methodology and made an amazing discovery - The BigDO is doable!
Professor Krumdieck is available for speaking engagements to present this game-changing finding.

26 November 2020 - Presentations by people who have had the Transition Engineering training, have carried out an InTIME project and are presenting their shift projects. 

21 November 2019 -  Co-Design Workshop to develop the combined venue, no-fly format for a transition engineering InTIME Workshop. This was essentially a crash course learning by doing. We had one international speaker from Grenoble University giving an update on the Transition Engineering School opening in 2020.
