Leen Gorissen - Change the World City by City (Sausalito Store)

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 6:00pm

New initiatives, ideas and products change the way we relate to one another and to our environment, as well as the way we define and fulfil our needs. They create opportunities for experimenting and learning, which can help our societies transition towards greater sustainability. But how can we implement transition in a useful way? Change the World City by City examines the ways in which urban transition initiatives work, how they influence each other, and how they can make our cities thrive in a sustainable manner. Among others, it puts forward a view on the conditions that can aid accelerating change towards a sustainable low-carbon society, on possibilities for policy change, and on adaptive mechanisms that will improve decision making.

Leen Gorissen, PhD in biology, is an Innovation biologist, sustainability transitions expert and founder of Studio Transitio. Previously Transition Research Coordinator at VITO Belgium and currently collaborator of nexxworks, systemic innovation and regenerators, she helps companies to discover that consulting nature makes sense for business, and guides them through transformative (business model) innovation processes.
