The Collectif pour une Transition Citoyenne brings together 29 organizations involved in ecological, social and democratic transition. The Collective’s action is based on two projects: the Fête des Possibles, an annual event that celebrates community-led action (and which is part of the European Day of Sustainable Communities) and the Pacte pour la transition. Both projects focus on change at the local level, somewhere between the neighborhood and department level.

Purpose of Collectif pour une Transition Citoyenne

The CTC follows and promote the principles of the Transition Pact among it's member organizations in French. The CTC members meet in a general assembly every quarter, plus a weekly meeting with administrators who are mostly also tied to member organizations (rather than "exclusive" network secretariat staff people.) There is not a distinct division about decisions taken at these levels of administration or GA, but generally overall strategy related to transition and org goals is determined my GA with admins and specific work teams following up on day to day decisions. Many administrators work for other organizations which actually pay them, for example, to work on projects like lFdP who are represented in the general assembly. Next week (Oct 3-8) will be the next general assembly, and they are considering the next year's of strategy and considering upcoming French elections and EU climate pact. They can measure their changes based on numbers of people involved, events organized, which is also how they make decisions in the network, reorient strategy in addition to funders' reports.
