One of the major challenges of the 21st century is the transition to new energy systems. It is widely understood that our use of fossil energy sources is no longer tenable because of its impact in terms of climate change, environmental pollution and the depletion of the Earth’s resources. While technical knowledge of inventive alternative solutions abounds, this is not the case when it comes to changing deeply vested identities, habits and routines. Jesse Hoffman explores the interplay between power and creativity to gain a better understanding of the role creative processes can play in empowering society’s transition to sustainable development.
