Mini-Lectures on TE Fundamentals
Motivation & Concepts
Transition Engineering has emerged as a field because the old way of thinking about sustainability was not adequately addressing un-sustainability. Once that key idea came to light, then we developed and tested the 7-Step methodology and started discovering innovative ideas and doing shift projects. The key motivations and concepts were captured by different groups over the last few years and posted on youtube.

Project Introduction and Description of the Transition Engineering Method (First 20 minutes in French)
Explanation of the InTIME Process and Shift Project results 5 Disruptive Discoveries presented for the city transition
Workshop Results - Local stakeholders develop 2 of the disruptive ideas into shift projects "Place Finder" and "Future Citizens"

Transition Engineering for Schools
The EducCate Global Network is offering a workshop session on Transition Engineering for middle and high school teachers worldwide.
Session: Energy and Material Transition
GATE webinars challenge professionals (engineers, ecologists, social scientists, economists and others) to change their professional behaviour, as well as seeking to change "consumer" behaviour. How you do your work is a behaviour of course, and Transition Engineering is how to do your work to lead to a sustainable future.
Taking action on climate change is about consumer choices, or political leadership or corporate behaviour, isn't it? Reducing the future risks of catastrophic effects of global warming is the responsibility of international leaders and activist groups, isn't it? Aren't engineers just supposed to do what the market and their employers want? These presentations by Professor Krumdieck answers these questions in a surprising way.
