The Transition Academy aims to increase the capacity of changemakers, civil society and organisations to contribute to more just, sustainable and resilient futures.  We offer academic and professional education on the theory and practice of transformative societal change.


Thematically, the focus of the Transition Academy is on understanding how sustainability transitions come about and how they are and can be influenced. Our curriculum also reflects the particular expertise of DRIFT with regard to topics such as (urban) transition management, social innovation and transformative knowledge. See all our topics.


If you’re curious to develop a deeper understanding of transformative social change and apply this to your own practice, please take a look at our open courses.  If you’re looking for a customized course for your organisation, institution or municipality, our tailor made offer will be of interest.
