Territorial Cooperation

Many people and structures cooperate at a territorial scale in urban and rural areas, through the mutualization of means, collective events, shared-places, collaborative cultural projects, or territorial  networks regrouping social & solidarity economy organizations. We experiment cooperative approaches for local development, that are creative, evolving, and innovative.


COOPTERR is a strategic partnership project for Adult Education under the framework of Erasmus+ that took place between September 2020 and April 2023, aimed at training people in key common skills that are necessary for territorial cooperation.

COOPTERR brings together six European partners, involved in civic, cultural and social life: CRIES (Romania), Fekete Sereg (Hungary), Largo Residencias (Portugal), Solidarius Italia (Italy), RIPESS Europe (Luxembourg) and UFISC (France).

These non-profit organisations decided to share their experience, practice and knowledge in territorial cooperation. They wish to foster networking between actors involved in territorial cooperation and disseminate their practices and methods.



This booklet is a presentation of our different findings and exchanges as a consortium. Each part can be read independently. The aim of this booklet is to share our experiences and methodologies widely.

You will find:

  • A manifesto that has been written by the partners to defend the values of culture, social solidarity econ- omy and territorial cooperation.
  • A presentation of social solidarity economy and cultural public policies in Europe and in the different countries of the partners.
  • A recipe book with different “recipes” for territorial cooperation elaborated by each partner to present different types of territorial cooperation and how they were put in place (tools, actors, partners, steps etc.). – A cartography of different initiatives of territorial cooperation crossed throughout the project.
  • A list of key skills for territorial cooperation worked throughout the project.
  • A presentation of the evaluation methodology and tools used during the project as well as examples of evaluation methodologies for territorial cooperation. – A presentation of the COOPTERR project and partners.
