4.Inventing new local governance

How can we make stakeholders share the construction of a common vision and the desire to jointly engage in the energy transition? How can we reinforce collective dynamics? How can we encourage decision-makers and citizens to change their habits? How can we invent new social practices?

Proposals to give dynamic to creativity and involve local stakeholders and citizens:

4.1. Create interface capacities between public authorities and the civil society

  • Grenoble Alpes Métropole (FR),
  • Almada (PT),
  • Brasov (RO).

4.2. Establish cross departmental links to avoid silo mentality

  • Mulhouse Alsace Agglomération (FR),
  • Barcelona (ES),
  • Greater Lyon (FR).

4.3. Prove that it works and create a snowball effect

  • Besançon (FR) & Freiburg (DE),
  • Brussels (BE).

4.4. Give public visibility to motivated players and citizens

  • Rennes Métropole (FR),
  • Pamplona (ES).

4.5. Raise opportunities for experimenting new practices to encourage their dissemination

  • Tübingen (DE),
  • Transition Towns Movement.

4.6 Make arts and culture part of the energy transition process

  • Helsinki (FI),
  • London (GB).


4.7 Use town twinning as a springboard for energy transition

  • Malmö, Sweden & Tangshan, China
