Course description

Humanity needs to make a transition away from fossil fuels as a source of energy. What can we learn from the big transitions human societies have faced in the past? Some examples might include: the collapse of the Roman Empire, the Industrial Revolution, printing as a common way of information exchange, the arrival of invader X in location Y. There have also been many smaller transitions in our lifetimes, such as globalization, mass tourism, and electronic communication. What provoked the transition? How did it develop? How did society respond? What was the initial outcome? What was the outcome in the long term? Each participant will investigate a transition that they find interesting and share their findings with the group in a presentation meant to stimulate discussion. The group is receptive, respectful, friendly and constructive.
