The transition is now!

Cities, territories, students, citizens: all are committed to a change in lifestyles, production, mobility, energy and communication to face the climate emergency. Among them, architects, urban planners, engineers, administrators as well as companies aspire to a new future project for the 21st century.

This is why the FBA and its partners are launching the 2nd TW21 to help the new generation understand the scale and methods of ecological transition, in order to face the challenges to come.

The Transition workshop offers a new educational framework aimed at accelerating the transition of cities through the project. This interdisciplinary course aims to make city professionals aware of sustainable development, develop and transmit design tools and methods for resilient cities, and equip a new generation of professionals to face the climate emergency.
