Operationalising positive tipping points towards global sustainability

This paper, from the Global Systems Institute’s Professor Tim Lenton, explains the concept of positive tipping points, at which small interventions can trigger self-reinforcing feedbacks that accelerate systemic change. The research synthesises theory and examples to provide initial guidelines for creating enabling conditions, sensing when a system can be positively tipped, who can trigger it, and how they can trigger it.
