The project We make transition! aims to strengthen collaboration and innovation efforts between the civil society and the public sector to drive the green transition locally and regionally.
In this project, a transnational inclusive sustainability vision is co-created, pathways and concrete steps towards the sustainability transition are identified, and selected sustainability initiatives are piloted.
The so-called Transition Arena Method, a transition process developed in the Netherlands, is piloted in this project. The civil society is brought closer and systemically integrated in innovation efforts and the sustainability transition. The method supports societal resilience by empowering different actors striving to support the creation and implementation of various innovative solutions. Different solutions of sharing economy, local circular economy of food, and eco-social solutions of energy systems are good examples.
