Transition Accelerator Reports

The Transition Accelerator is a pan-Canada, non-profit, charitable organization that was set up in 2019 with the generous support of charitable foundations including theEdmonton Community FoundationMcConnell Foundation and Ivey Foundation. CESAR was  actively involved in the effort, convinced of the importance of the Accelerator methodology in defining and advancing pathways for  a low carbon economy, and cognizant of the fact that credible and compelling pathways to sustainability would be different in various regions and sectors across Canada.

When establishing the Accelerator, we launched a Serial publication called the Transition Accelerator Reports. We plan to make these reports available here, as well as on the Transition Accelerator’s own website.

August 2019 – Transition Accelerator Reports
James Meadowcroft, PhD; David Layzell, PhD, FRSC; Normand Mousseau, PhD

The first of the Transition Accelerator Report summarizes the philosophy and methodology that will guide the first steps of the new organization.  It provides a blueprint for accelerating systems-level change in the Canadian economy through co-creating and then advancing credible, compelling and capable transition pathways that harness and direct disruptions in sectors and regions across the country.
