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 carry out the projects of change. Transition Engineering requires a systems perspective for planned changes to current engineered systems. Transition involves the whole of society, economy, ecology, infrastructure and energy and material supply chains. The Interdisciplinary Transition, Innovation, Management and Engineering (InTIME) methodology generates 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. Transition Engineering achieves energy transition, one project at a time.

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.

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.
