Members of the Municipalities in Transition community of practice voted for the issues they wanted to discuss. Webinar #4 introduces some best local practices of citizens and municipalities committed to work together.
Cristiano Bottone, from Transition Italia, will introduce the concept of “groups vs fluxes”. Luis Keel Pereira, from Telheiras Parceria Local (Lisbon, Portugal), will explain the way the local administration joined the local partnership association to improve synergies in the neighborhood. Òscar Gussinyer, from Resilience.Earth coop, will talk about the bioregion of La Garrotxa (Catalunya, Spain) and the relationships between consortium, civil society and local administrations. Lucia Aboutaoufik, from 21solutions (Bruxelles, Belgium), will explain the role of thirds actors as facilitators between municipality and community led actions, as well as the methodologies used.
The co-presenters are there to provide some expert insights, but this is mainly about YOU – in your Transition group, municipality project or community project working for a better world. Please bring your stories, experiences, questions, support you can offer to others and challenges. Let’s see where we can take the exploration and discussion of this fascinating topic.
