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.
