Transition Pathways


A project by the Laboratory of Possibilities

Transition Pathways  is a collaboration between Space for Life and the Université de Montréal that aims to better understand, define and debate the paths that society could take to ensure its survival, whether they are possible, challenging or desirable.

Accelerating climate change, massive loss of biodiversity, depletion of natural resources: the question is no longer whether we are moving towards a profoundly different society, but whether this transition will occur in spite of us, or to some degree, because we let it happen.

In this context, and even more so today, the role of both experts and citizens is bound to change, as the need to collectively find levers to determine our future has grown more urgent. 

The Transition Pathways' approach is structured around 3 major challenges that share the fact that they raise major issues and call into question our ability to develop and flourish within the limits of the planet and require the contribution of a diversity of expertise and points of view in order to be adequately addressed. Espace pour la vie and the Université de Montréal offer you the opportunity to help identify the best choices for our society. 

Bring together the Digital Transition and the Environmental Transition: Get Involved!

What are the possible and desirable futures for the digital transition in Quebec?

What are the possible and desirable futures for digital transition in Quebec?

What digital tools could facilitate our daily contribution to the ecological transition? Do we have a moral duty to limit our consumption of connected objects?

These are the types of questions that could be raised during the Citizen Workshops that will be facilitated to identify the best choices to make for our society as a whole.

Let’s Rethink Everything—Together

Over the next few years, Transition Pathways will harness the knowledge of several disciplines and multiple players in order to collectively identify the paths that have the potential to lead Quebec society in more desirable direction.

Energy, food, health, production and consumption patterns, economic and cultural models: together we must rethink everything.

The work of defining the pathways will be structured around 5 major challenges, two of which have already been identified:

  • How can we ensure that more and more people have access to a healthy diet without depleting the earth's resources in a context of climate change?
  • How do we go about merging the digital and the ecological transitions?

The remaining 3 challenges will be identified in the coming months.
