In each territory organize workshops for exchange between stakeholders (local workers, collectives, NGOs, technical institutions, research laboratories) on the questions and themes of action research and the methods put in place to realize them. 5. Create an international conference for a summary of the collaborative steps taken and the first results in the different resource territories (April 27-29, 2015) and open the reflexion during a Forum (April, 30). 6.
