The Municipalities in Transition
Community of Practice

The Municipalities in Transition project encompasses a community of practice with a wider membership composed by several circles with members that have a common interest in Municipalities in Transition project and System.


The MiT Community of Practice is entering its third phase and it:
  • Connects practitioners from different circles 
  • Shares and disseminates information and experiences 
  • Harvests learnings and new knowledge
  • Fosters peer-to-peer support among the participants
  • Creates a support community for the MiT project
  • Explores possible synergies


Previously, we’ve seen three overlapping “spaces” or functions that could be created for this community of practice:
  • “Work” space (working with the MiT system and related topics)
  • Inspirational / sharing space (sharing experiences, challenges and learnings that are happening on the ground and in our networks.)
  • Emergence space (new ideas and proposals)


The MiT Community of Practice plays a central role in the transdisciplinary research process.
