Introduction course in Transition Studies

On the 12th of February 2016 the Transition Academy hosts an intensive training day on Transition Studies.

The Transition Training Day offers an interactive one-day programme where junior researchers and professionals with a research interest can explore the diverse angles of transition studies.

Our group of experienced teachers, led by Academic Director dr. Flor Avelino, will enthusiastically guide you through the landscape of transitions. Offering both in depth theory as well as interactive practice and discussions, the programme promises to be as confusing as inspiring – two good reasons to stay for drinks after.

For who? We invite all (post)graduate level students and researchers interested to learn more about sustainability transitions. In past years, students, researchers and professionals with backgrounds in political & social science, economics & business, governance, technical and gamma studies joined the course.

Transition studies comprise a field of academic research that focuses on processes of long term change towards sustainability. DRIFT (Dutch Research Institute for Transitions) specialises in Transition Management and Action Research: the translation between scientific research and practical action.

Transition management is an innovative governance concept based on complexity theory, social theories and insights from the field of governance. It aims to deal with persistent societal problems by exploring and furthering more sustainable systems.

Registration closes February 5 – read more about the programme and registration.
