The rupture aims to be positive. It entails adaptability, renewal and solutions. New initiatives are being invented at the scale of territories, in line with a multiplication of creativity in favour of the collective. The existing advances have left traces, but have not crossed yet the variety of possibilities. Facing the acceleration of environmental issues, it is necessary, while focusing on the initiatives that are actually serving a sustainable future, to build on the testimony of those who dared to take the leap. Abandonment of a total dependence on fossil fuels, inventive business models, fair fiscal projects, innovative agricultural productions, renewed financial products, many people have taken up the challenge of a more balanced global economy, more respectful of mankind and its environment, and integrating the demographic issues. However, the impact of risk-taking is too often hampered by short-term political, economic and financial measures, lacking global visions, and serving particular interests, despite a better use of the concept of governance in development policies promoting participatory democracy. Thus, it is necessary to understand why the good practices, which people know are existing, are not adapted more globally.
