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.
