Description

The "Convergence for Carbon Transition 2020-2030" is a 1-day conference and workshop that brings together innovative minds from all over New Zealand. This is a 'No Fly' conference is based around "Transition Engineering" courses developed at the University of Canterbury. The delegates will attend the conference at one of our three main destinations – Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch, without having to travel to one particular city.

The aim of the 2019 Convergence is to engage with emerging engineers and other technical professionals on a learning journey that will result in being able to frame the problems of emissions reduction from a different perspective. This exercise in Transition Engineering is a novel approach which is just emerging on the global stage. We all have some discovery learning to do, and we need to bring young engineers and non-engineers in as co-equal explorers.

In this respect, we warmly invite you to attend the Convergence Day, 21 Nov 2019, as a participant. The proposition is that getting the experienced, the busy and the young enthusiasts into the same room, and working through the new Transition Engineering methodology, we will create the space for discovering new ideas about the job of changing all engineered systems to use 80% less fossil fuel – now. By attending the 2019 Convergence, you will play a pivotal role in developing and refining the agenda for Convergence events in 2020 and beyond.

The Convergence is a free event open to everyone. Please make sure you are selecting the ticket(s) with the right DESTINATION! The location deatails are provided with your ticket. Coffee, tea and light snacks are provided for breakfast during registration. Lunch is NOT provided, however, there are numerous cafes and restaurants in the close vicinity of your preferred destination.
