Published at 17 December 2021
Léa Sébastien is a teacher in the geography department of the University of Toulouse II, and a researcher at the CNRS GEODE Laboratory since 2010. Her research concerns four main themes: participatory research, planning conflicts, attachment to place and indicators of durability. She is the author of numerous scientific publications on these themes, including two books. One concerns movements of resistance to development projects entitled: “Résister aux grands projets inutiles et imposés”, Editions Textuel, 2018. The other, relating to the potential for sustainable management in private forests, entitled: “Forêt cherche propriétaire pour relation durable”, Editions ECOFOR, 2002.
Ecological and inclusive transition initiatives are numerous and supported in all regions by a variety of players. They are, however, relatively isolated, in the minority and lacking in resources. Territorial anchoring associated with local networking appears necessary for them to come to structure the territories and strengthen their resilience. The primary stake of the Transilience project is the establishment of a participatory research system aimed at bringing together academics, associations, public authorities, businesses and citizens, through the development of collaborative tools making it possible to share and operationalize knowledge on transition and territorial resilience. It thus explores the following issue: to what extent can participatory research catalyze transition initiatives and strengthen the resilience of territories through the proposal of collaborative tools - multi-actor and multidisciplinary?
