Workshop «  Peer cities and pilot transition territories ".

The reference framework resulting from the workshop

Julian Perdrigeat, Patrice Vuidel

The workshop « Peer cities and pilot transition territories » had a twofold ambition: on the one hand, to progress in the modelling of the transition process specific to each territory participating in the workshop so as to stabilise and perpetuate the commitment and encourage a change of scale; on the other hand, to produce a shared reference system with a view to facilitating the transfer of experience to other territories; the reference system being made up of operational concepts based on action methodologies. This twofold ambition has resulted in the setting up of exchanges on the transition experiences of each of the participating local authorities, from the complementary point of view of elected representatives, administrative executives and economic operators, in order to identify the policies and action methodologies relevant to the transition, as well as the reasons behind their relevance. The frame of reference highlights four series of questions around which these actors are systematically called upon : the commitment of the actors of the territory as a resource, acting in an integrated way and taking an interest in the systemic effects of the action, working in cooperation, evaluating the value created and questioning the relationship between the means mobilised and the value created in order to bring about the emergence of new economic models.

7. A MANAGEMENT METHOD BASED ON COOPERATION AND A REORGANISATION OF ROLES IN A WAY THAT IS TRANSVERSE TO THE HYPOTHESES.

The two dimensions of change of scale
Changing scale through systemic jumps
A value that fits into different territorial scales
Transfer to other actors / territories
