The Problem is Un-Sustainability

Details  Specify the project requirements.
How do you define sustainability? Transition Engineering involves a shift of perspective from adding more sustainable options to shifting unsustainable energy and material production.

Global Association for Transition Engineering

Interdisciplinary Transition Innovation, Management and Engineering

Transition Engineering is an emerging field whose practitioners are trained to deal with the wicked problems of change. Our approach is interdisciplinary - Transition involves the whole of society, economy and ecology, and fundamentally involves engineered systems, infrastructure and supply chains. Our methodology generates the space for innovation and prospects for opportunities in changes that address complex problems. Our specialty includes energy and sustainability, but most importantly the long-term engineering and management of new "shift" projects.

About Transition Engineering

About Transition Engineering

Details  The next big challenge for all engineering fields is handling wicked problems. Wicked problems are successful and profitable engineered systems that are also unsustainable. Our energy and material systems provide huge benefits and conveniences, and they make money. But they also are unsustainable, incur unacceptable external costs, and pose environmental and social risks. Transition Engineering is emerging to deal with wicked problems. The 7-step approach results in innovative transition shift projects. Explore the Knowledge and Training resources where GATE members share experience with innovating, engineering and managing transition shift projects.

GATE Organization

Details  Pervasive risks of un-sustainability pose challenges in all disciplines.We don't need another interest group, but we do need urgent action. All engineering disciplines are responsible for the projects that will change engineered systems to prevent what is preventable. We are inspired by history - 100 years ago 62 engineers in New York got together and started what would become Safety Engineering, and that action has changed the world. Now, we will change the future - one engineering project at a time. GATE is a peer-to-peer organization set up to facilitate the agile learning needed for the emergence of a new discipline - Transition Engineering.
