SAVE THE DATE for the GATE AGM 18 Oct 2023
In 2022, The GATE Initiative as described below is a big step up in activity for the members and trustees with objectives for 2022-24. Please support the Initiative with a donation, joining GATE, and sharing information with others.
Donations will support the following activities:
The mission of Transition Engineers is to create innovations that disrupt the business as usual course, effectively manage the risks of un-sustainable resource use and destructive environmental impacts by carrying out shift projects for existing engineered systems and existing businesses and organisations. Shift projects achieve the COP21 Paris Agreement requirement of 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Global Association for Transition Engineering provides a membership and support network, a platform for carrying out research, teaching and certification and a forum for communicating successful projects that rapidly reduce fossil fuel use and manage restricted production of these valuable resources over the long term.

Engineers work directly for private good, but also have a social responsibility. Just over 100 years ago the relatively new fields of industrial and civil engineering made a major evolutionary leap when safety engineering was born out of human response of 62 engineers to the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Disaster. Transition Engineering applies the same concepts that guide the practice of safety engineering to the project of energy and material transition.
