Massif Central in Transitions

In February 2022, the “Massif Central in Transitions” projet was launched in the Monts du Lyonnais. The main objective of this project is to strengthen the local innovative initiatives carried out by the territories of the Massif Central in favor of their transition towards sustainable development models, to place them in a perspective of systemic and long-term change.

The project gathers members from the community of municipalities Creuse Grand Sud, from the community of communes of Grand Figeac, and from several communities of municipalities from the west of Rhône.

Massif Central in Transitions project will support the rural territories of the Massif Central to strenghten their commitment to the fight against climate change, by making the management of systemic change a pillar of rural development in an integrated strategy.

It will also boost local projects by exchanging experiences in the Massif central on new economic models, on new governance, law and relations between companies, and on fundings. This will increase the margin, the scale and the impact of territorial transitions.

Furthermore, this project will promote the pilot initiatives of the territories of the Massif central by relying on networks and partners at local, regional, national and European level. These pilot experiments and their support should make it possible to build an integrated approach to implementing a systemic approach at the scale of a territory and to see its concrete application in Massif central.
