Whether it is chosen or thrust upon you, change brings both opportunities and turmoil. Since first published 25 years ago, Transitions has helped hundreds of thousands of readers cope with these issues by providing an elegantly simple yet profoundly insightful roadmap of the transition process. With the understanding born of both personal and professional experience, William Bridges takes readers step by step through the three stages of any transition: The Ending, The Neutral Zone, and, in time, The New Beginning. Bridges explains how each stage can be understood and embraced, leading to meaningful and productive movement into a hopeful future. With a new introduction highlighting how the advice in the book continues to apply and is perhaps even more relevant today, and a new chapter devoted to change in the workplace, Transitions will remain the essential guide for coping with the one constant in life: change.

The world’s population is currently undergoing a significant transition towards urbanisation, with the UN expecting that 70% of people globally will live in cities by 2050. Urbanisation has multiple political, cultural, environmental and economic dimensions that profoundly influence social development and innovation. This fundamental long-term transformation will involve the realignment of urban society’s technologies and infrastructures, culture and lifestyles, as well as governance and institutional frameworks. Such structural systemic realignments can be referred to as urban sustainability transitions: fundamental and structural changes in urban systems through which persistent societal challenges are addressed, such as shifts towards urban farming, renewable decentralised energy systems, and social economies. This book provides new insights into how sustainability transitions unfold in different types of cities across the world and explores possible strategies for governing urban transitions, emphasising the co-evolution of material and institutional transformations in socio-technical and socio-ecological systems. With case studies of mega-cities such as Seoul, Tokyo, New York and Adelaide, medium-sized cities such as Copenhagen, Cape Town and Portland, and nonmetropolitan cities such as Freiburg, Ghent and Brighton, the book provides an opportunity to reflect upon the comparability and transferability of theoretical/conceptual constructs and governance approaches across geographical contexts. Urban Sustainability Transitions is key reading for students and scholars working in Environmental Sciences, Geography, Urban Studies, Urban Policy and Planning.

The designer no longer exists as a lone creative voice but is increasingly becoming a facilitator of other people's creativity, working in collaboration with stakeholders through participatory approaches. Taken together, the roles of designers are changing but they are still very much drawing on the fundamental skill set of designers. How can today's design practitioners, educators and students respond to the transition? The book reveals: • The working processes of these contemporary design practices; • How they have transformed their own practice; and • Why they done so and explore their reasons for their approach. Design Transitions provides a rich picture, both visually and textually, of the following practices in the field service design, user experience, design innovation, creative digital practices and social design. The authoring team has an established research publication record on design methods, tools and social practices of designers. Dr Joyce Yee is a senior lecturer at the Northumbria University's School of Design in the United Kingdom. Dr Emma Jefferies is a design researcher and Lauren Tan has worked as a designer in various capacities ranging from communication design, design thinking, service design, social design and management consulting.
