  • Front office handling of membership applications, website management and answering emails (admin cost $50,000 USD)
  • Example Projects editing, checking and preparing for member's access in website (postgraduate students @ $20/hr cost $24,000 USD)
  • Website support, domain name and hosting ($2000 USD)
  • Marketing and Outreach ($10,000 USD)
  • Grants in Aide for engineers to do the online course ($500 USD Each)


 How do we change everything that needs changing InTIME?

dare to go there

In Engineering we always start with the end. We make sure we know what the requirements are and what success looks like. We don't assume solutions or make premature selections about design or components. We work through exploring ideas, generating concepts, researching prior art, developing models of fundamental structures, materials and dynamics. Engineering is a trusted profession because we do things systematically, objectively, applying science and comparing options like-for-like. We will all do our jobs and change what needs changing in order to prevent what is preventable. 

Start with the end

In 2040 some of us are retired, but still active in GATE. The global fossil fuel production in 2040 is a climate safe 2000 Mtoe. We are writing up our memoirs. We are writing a review article, documenting the history of how this amazing emergence of the corrective transdiscipline of Transition Engineering in the early 2020's was instrumental in the rapid downshift of fossil fuel production to a climate-safe level. The economic ideas of perpetual growth from the 20th Century are seen as dangerously unhinged from reality. The near-miss on unrecoverable damage of ecosystems and climate systems is a fundamental lesson for humanity that has been foundational in the transition and corrective mechanisms that are part of the local, national and global policy, business and economic frameworks going forward from 2040. 

So how does it start?
