Sustainable Communities Programme workshop

This workshop preceding the ECOLISE 2019 General Assembly is an important opportunity for connecting and contributing to ECOLISE’s strategic Sustainable Communities Programme. In particular, it serves launching the transnational SCP Community of Practice.


Building on multiple previous conversations, we will touch on key challenges of catalysing regional transitions in a holistic, co-creative way. The specific topics will be deepened in online meetings in the coming months.

Emerging agenda

Specific topics:
– Mapping and attracting stakeholders
– Facilitating cross-sector meetings
– Developing a collective impact agenda
– Designing and implementing systemic interventions
– Governing multi-actor networks
– Documenting and sharing lessons learned
– Raising funds for the SCP
…and other emerging topics of interest for participants
