Faculty of Engineering, University of Bristol

This event is has been organised by a group of staff in the Faculty of Engineering who are keen to develop opportunities for teaching and research in the field of Transition Engineering. The workshop will be led by Susan Krumdieck, Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Canterbury University in New Zealand, who has 25 years of research and experience in sustainability and energy engineering. In 2010 she put forward the idea of Transition Engineering when she had the idea that the work of transition to sustainability could be accomplished in a similar way to previous transitions in safety and security. By 2011 there were a number of people who wanted to get involved on several continents. A Linked-in discussion group was started in November 2012 to explore the foundation of a professional group. The discussion agreed that in keeping with the founding of Safety Engineering in 1911, if 62 professional engineers agreed that there should be an action from within the engineering professions to achieve the scientific requirements for climate change and fossil fuel reduction, then we would start a campaign for action. The discussion group is used to consider ideas and share experiences. The decision to go forward with opening the Global Association for Transition Engineering was made by 142 engineers from the USA, UK, New Zealand and other countries in November 2012. It is also the forum where the organisation of an association is taking place. As at April 2015 the Linked-in membership is over 1500 members from across the globe.
