Resources

We have built a collection of resources that show what kind of changes are possible, how people can help to shape them and what conditions can make them happen. All of our resources are released under a creative commons license so they are free to use and share. We love to hear how our resources are being used so do get in touch if have any queries or suggestions.

The Reset Series

The Reset series explores the lessons from the global pandemic on two vital areas for rapid transition: overconsumption and unnecessary travel. Our set of downloadable short briefings, webinars and short film series, focus on the period we are living through for scalable, rapid change and provide evidence-based hope for the future.

Lessons from Lockdown

For several months we have asked for people to share their experiences of lockdown and see what lessons you might have for bringing about a rapid transition, and living happier, more caring and less polluting lives. We created a set of free to use, unbranded briefings and animations on three emerging themes: how we can look after each other better as societies, how more space for people and nature can be found, and how those who already have enough can thrive with less ‘stuff’.

A pocketbook of hope

We are delighted to share with you our pocket book of evidence-based hope. It is packed full of examples of how rapid transition has happened in the past and how it can inspire climate action in the future. It's free, downloadable and fits into most regular sized pockets!
