[en] While energy production is generally considered in terms of its technical dimension, energy transition generally implies a new context within which its decentralisation and repossession by citizens becomes a social, political and economic challenge (Raineau 2011) . One of these challenges is to know how these citizens can contribute to the implementation of new relationships with the world and nature, in particular, while remaining open to new possibilities. Since the end of the 20th century an increasing number of residents or users associations have been created whose members consider that they have a civic duty to become informed about their environment and to participate in its management. Certain authors also put forward the idea of “citizen sciences” (Callon 2001, Charvolin 2007) that is to say, active and original collaboration initiatives between skilled citizens equipped with local knowledge and experts or scientists, in order to produce research and intervention questions, methods and results that are claimed to be more sustainable (Stengers 1999). We will argue that, in this regard, the art of diplomacy may be central to the emergence of reflexive governance within the transition processes that strive to be sustainable .
