Transition Design

Transition Design - Getting a sense for the relations between Small and Big Change

We need major changes to how we service our communities with water, energy, food, transport, etc, to become more sustainable.

This presentation will introduce a range of approaches to designing multi-level, multi-stage transitions in how we organise our societies and practice our everyday lives via attention to the way products mediate habitual practices.

Cameron Tonkinwise is the Professor of Interdisciplinary Design and the Director of the Design Innovation Research Centre at the University of Technology Sydney. He has researched Sustainable Service System Design, with a focus on Sharing Economies, for over 20 years. Cameron has spent the last 10 years teaching and researching in the USA. His current research concerns Transition Design, a range of approaches to design-enabled systems-level change toward more equitably sustainable futures.
