The Municipalities in Transition project started in 2017 and aimed at exploring how municipalities and civil society could work better together. The research included codesigning a systemic and operational instrument that could boost the transformative reach of cooperation between local actors of sustainability and testing in six pilots in five countries. Local actors can use this instrument together to capture the governance imprint of transformational efforts and are challenged to reorganize and expand it, improving the stock of change actions and related experiences.
