Forum Origin, Diversity, and Territories 2023

November 21, 2023
Crete, Greece

The Forum 2023, in Crete, will be able to draw inspiration from Mediterranean island spaces to reflect on new modes of operation and interconnections, on the forms and functions of knowledge and resource networks that support the transitions of rural communities. For that, participants will examine the rural dynamics of resilience by mobilising the mountain as a revealing environment of these dynamics.

The concern of this Forum 2023 will be to put the notion of territory to the test of the notion of a network in the perspective of responses to the challenges of resilience to crises, be they sanitary, geostrategic, or climatic. Furthermore, transition alternatives based on a renewed approach to knowledge mobilisation networks will be explored, emphasising a new function: that of conducting the numerous learning processes to be carried out.
