Transition arrow

How can transitions to a sustainable society be shaped? Research work at the Wuppertal Institute interlinks aspects of climate, environment and resources. It combines ecological questions with issues related to economic and societal change. Our research work is based on a wide range of knowledge and experience in the field of natural, social and cultural sciences; engineering and economics. Based on a transdisciplinary approach our science actively integrates actors of change. Research methodology at the Wuppertal Institute follows the transition concept.
