Project description:

The purpose of this research project is to analyse the multi-stakeholder approach to the socio-technical transition to a low-carbon society on the Dingle Peninsula. In the past, approaches to transitioning have been implemented as either top-down (government led) or bottom-up (grassroots/community initiatives). Transition Dingle 2030 (working title) has the potential to be a unique blend of both approaches, through collaboration and co-creation between different individuals/ organisations, with each having different goals, expectations and expertise. This research project will map the different individuals/ organisations involved in the Transition Dingle 2030 project, to investigate how the multi-stakeholder network develops over time and will inform Transition Dingle 2030’s ambition, to create a robust multi-stakeholder network and increase social learning between different actors.
