Zuid Transitions (Rotterdam)

There are persistent (or wicked) problems within (sub-) systems which require fundamental societal change in order to become more sustainable
Societal change is a highly complex and non-linear process at multiple scale levels
Next to taking a multi-level perspective as a starting point, it is important to understand transitions in terms of multiple domains (integral), multiple phases and multiple actors
Transition dynamics are a combination of destabilization at the meso level (regime) and the emergence of innovative niches at the micro level
Because of high level of complexity and uncertainty,  governance of societal change requires a substantial degree of reflexivity
And because complexity and uncertainties are taken as a starting point, learning and experimenting are important aims for transition governance (‘learning-by-doing’ and ‘doing-by-learning’)
Learning can be improved by building a long-term framework as the basis for short term action

To live together
in a green and sustainable oasis

To live diversity
in a local social economy

Places for everyone
Collaborate on flowers
