Why ?

            To face the ecological, social and geopolitical stakes, we must transform everything: lifestyles, economy, society. To do this, millions of people must develop new skills and abilities in order to change practices in the public, economic and civic spheres.
            The institutional actors of education will not be able to face theses immense training needs linked alone. Moreover, they don’t necessarily have the skills to do so, in a context where the transition is being invented by communities of practice rather than in research laboratories.
            For these reasons, the paths of transition wish to experiment with a training solution based on the power of peer-to-peer networks.

      How ?

      We have developed a digital platform where you will find numerous offers of discovery, learning and training from our friends and partners, around the challenges of transition.

      Via this platform, you can :

      Compose your trip « à la carte »

      Identify the places and events that fit your interests, and organize your trip on the Paths of Transition!

      Or join learning expeditions !

      Or Discover trips around the topics that you are interested in and go with others on the Paths of Transition.

      For whom ?

      • Young people, students, people in transition who want to find their way or change their life
      • Groups, associations, companies and communities in transition
      • Individuals who wish to take a weekend or vacation stroll along the Paths of Transition

      Who are we ?

      We are a collective of individuals and organizations long involved in the transition and free software movements. We are a non-profit organization.

      Discover the platform

      A collaborative web platform

      Functioning as a wiki, it allows for the collaborative production of common knowledge. The objective is to ensure that the citizens, associations, companies and local authorities involved in the project contribute together to the knowledge base of the Chemins de la Transition.

      Highly structured data

      The platform is based on Semantic Web and Fediverse technologies. A real technological leap forward, these technologies allow data (knowledge) to be linked together in a meaningful way. Users can then navigate from one to another, following logical links and exploring the knowledge base.

      These technologies also promote « interoperability » between information systems, which will allow Transition Paths to interconnect with many other platforms in a decentralised way.
