Workbook Volume I for urban transition makers

The Workbook for urban transition makers is a collection of tools for change makers willing to contribute to sustainability transition in cities. More specifically, this workbook explains the tools to get started with so-called transition governance.

This mode of governance aims to facilitate and accelerate sustainability transitions through a participatory process of visioning, learning and experimenting. Understanding the current system dynamics and the actor networks is a crucial starting point for devising activities to influence sustainable transformation in cities and beyond.

This workbook is for anyone who would like to adapt and implement transition governance processes in their city. For instance, changemakers who want to design a long-term roadmap or strategy, to facilitate multistakeholder collaborations, to experiment with innovative solutions, or to conduct action
research in their city, etc. This means that it is for everyone who would like to design, adapt and implement a process aimed at supporting sustainability transitions in their cities/communities. The tools presented in this workbook relate to the very basics of transition governance, i.e. analysing the transition dynamics within a city.
