Why City in Transition Festival?
We need a change now. Immediately. Our Planet Earth is crying for help and even immediate change could be too late for humanity. We must get from climate change to radical transition! We need changes in our thinking and in our actions! We have to analyse the current problems in a complex way, through the Sustainable Development Goals, to be able to give long-run and sustainable answers for the local and global problems.
How are we going to achieve our goals?
We will bring different disciplines together with a great mix of nationalities, cultures and languages to develop a new sustainable and inclusive city. In our case, this city is Zürich. If we succeed, we can adapt the ideas and actions to further cities all around Switzerland, Europe and globally. Many of the problems are already defined on different levels and some institutes, firms, organisations and communities are already taking actions, but these actions are still very isolated. We will bring all these local and global developments together during the festival in Zürich to create an interdisciplinary and intercultural melting pot for new sustainable and inclusive action-based developments.
