Positive Tipping Points for Exeter

Positive Tipping Points for Exeter
  • This event has passed.

What are the positive tipping points for a transformation in Exeter’s environmental action? How can we create and trigger them?

Join this free workshop to find out, and hear the latest research into Positive Tipping Points. We will collectively practice using the Positive Tipping Points framework – creating the right conditions for change, finding reinforcing feedback loops, and triggering a shift into a new system – before identifying key next steps for climate action across Exeter.

The Positive Tipping Points framework is a way to re-think our understanding of how change happens. We’re familiar with negative tipping points that can accelerate the crisis, such as glacier melt or biodiversity loss, but we are also able to predict and encourage positive shifts which will help us avoid the worst impacts.

The event is free for all, and refreshments will be provided. We are specifically inviting community projects, local policy makers, academics and others playing a role in Exeter’s environmental ecosystem.

This event, in collaboration with the Exeter Living Lab, is part of a series of free Green Futures Network workshops following theĀ Global Tipping Points Conference in Exeter in September. For more information contact Peter from the Green Futures Network at gfn@exeter.ac.uk.

The event will start at 7pm, but attendees are welcome to arrive from 6.15pm for informal discussions.
