A rapid transition towards a thriving planet
According to the IPCC’s Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C, “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” are needed over the next eleven years to prevent climate breakdown. However, rapid transitions are often thought to be too expensive or politically unrealistic. The Rapid Transition Alliance (RTA) challenges this view with evidence-based hope for a warming world. It aims to turn such beliefs upside down by demonstrating what is possible from past and present examples of change, ensuring that their lessons are learned.
