CITEGO, accelerator in territories’ transition to sustainable societies

CITEGO’s purpose
CITEGO supports these transformations by pooling and comparing experiences from various networks, providing a conceptual framework and methods for capitalisation, and by decompartmentalising professional practices.
With its partners, CITEGO implements the ‘practices-to-practices mediation cycle’: start with a compilation of current practices, particularly innovative practices; determine lessons that can be learned, design pedagogical tools that can be used to enrich and develop current practices, contribute to the development of professional learning communities.

Grasp and manage complexity
The documentary resources on this site analyse diverse experiences to facilitate our understanding of changes currently underway in territories, in the light of territorial governance. Links between these experiences are plotted on a semantic ‘map’, the relational atlas. With the atlas, it is possible to view and name the transversal links, and thus renew approaches to governance and the economy.

Our modes of action:
  • Collect and compare innovative practices: theme-based dossiers with a mirror committee as a vector for the capitalisation of experience.


  • CITEGO supports the capitalisation of experience based on innovative practices. Capitalisation is neither an evaluation nor documentation. Its goal is to allow actors in the experience to (i) understand what they are doing/have done by stating it formally, (ii) examine this experience, along with peers, to identify what could be useful for others, (iii) produce new knowledge.

    One important goal of support for capitalisation of experience is the production of theme-based dossiers to enrich the resources site. Writing is itself an important phase in the actors’ reflexivity process, as it helps them grasp what has transpired, to understand the trajectory of change and identify the principles underlyng their experiences.

    Depending on the specific case, CITEGO provides methodological support, an outside opinion, an innovative viewpoint, contradiction (to stimulate more indepth reflection) or help in writing documents. The goal is to confront experiences and thereby identify their shared guiding principles, despite--or sometimes because of--the diversity of contexts.

    One instrument in this capitalisation is the mirror committee, which brings together various types of expertise throughout the production process, to help actors examine issues and take a wider view.

  • Showcase experience: resources on the site are indexed with the relational atlas

  • The resources site provides a showcase for the richness of experience acquired in various areas related to territorial transition and governance. It can be seen as a living, interactive and continuously updated dictionary that allows users to contribute content/knowledge, link it to other subjects and create new content.
    As a compiler and organiser of all the documentary resources available, in all their richness and diversity, the resources site is a visual and technical demonstration of the elimination of barriers. All the documents made available are indexed by the relational atlas. A digital tool at the service of semantic mapping, the relational atlas makes it possible to ‘pull the threads’ of actors, themes and means of action--to bring them together, and to see where they lead.
    Partnerships developed around the capitalisation of experience enable the production of content that can enrich atlas entries and thus the resources site.
    One of CITEGO’s main goals is to participate in the development of knowledge from a position as far upstream as possible in its production, to facilitate its inclusion in the atlas.

  • Grasp and manage territories differently: construction of local maps

  • The creation of a local map (=customised relational atlas) allows CITEGO to support territorial actors as they seek to better understand their territory and experience and how it relates to theoretical knowledge, and thus to participate in its implementation. The mapping tool allows actors to visualise, at different stages of the project, the challenges and issues that arise, so that they can then construct action scenarios.

    With this in mind, CITEGO works with partners to construct local maps based on their issues, determining with them what components to include and what angles of approach to use in examining these issues, in order to identify connections pertinent to their action.

  • Create dialogue: continuous training

  • CITEGO develops training systems including massive open online courses (MOOC) with the goal of creating learning communities and developing capacities for ongoing collective learning.

    Special care is taken to place future and new professionals in a position to develop their capacity to mobilise knowledge in practical situations and their reflexivity as soon as possible. CITEGO offers support for situations where knowledge ‘is in the making’, which differ from the usual ‘transmission’ situations.
