What we doing


#AcademicsTakeAction

Lobbying UK universities, UUK and UKRI to support academics and students to become volunteers for climate mitigation, adaptation and ecological restoration. Read our open letter. Watch this space for our new site which will launch a new website for the world's academics to join the action.

Creating climate action 101 modules

Part of our work will include partnering with academics and student groups to design modules that address any of the problems we face due to climate change and ecological breakdown.

This could mean students could take modules that are action based, from basic level planting trees to engineering students designing solar grids for student housing. There is so much we can do that empowers young people for an uncertain future.

Scaling up mitigation, adaptation and restoration

Transitionlab.earth's goal is to help scale up the response to climate change and our damaged ecosystems. This means creating opportunities to add to the work of governments and private sector.

We are building a database system to help make it easier for anyone to get involved in the largest project in the world - repairing our planet for future generations.
