By paying attention to social initiatives and emergences, as well as the actors who implement them, this conference seeks to participate in the construction of such an approach. Indeed, it calls for a look at initiatives that are not recognized in the dominant discourse because they do not fit in its elitist, developmental, hierarchical, productivist or universalist logic (Santos, 2016).

It also seeks to raise interest in social possibilities, potentials, and capabilities as well as real and achievable utopias (Olin Wright, 2010) that may inspire and animate a new imagination.

The aim is to support initiatives that can impart this hope, to recognize existing possibilities, and to invite people to take action in building the future they wish to see for their cultural, social, economic and natural environments (Lipietz, 2012).
