The Second International Meeting of Territories of Co responsibility was held on the 22 and 23 November 2012 in Mulhouse. It represented a pivotal moment for the network as it grew from eight cities for the period 2009 to 2012 to over 300 urban and rural territories in over 15 countries both in Europe and Africa.
This enlargement of the network implied rethinking the functioning and tools for exchange. It became impossible to operate mainly by travelling to the territories and conducting study visits as was the case with the URBACT program, but instead new online tools were developed. In order to achieve this, the new collaborative website wikispiral.org was developed in 2012. It enables data to be uploaded in real time on the results of the processes conducted by the different territories of co-responsibility, allowing direct exchanges between them with online support. The launch of the service wikispiral.org coincided with the Second International Meeting of Territories of co-responsibility, confirming the desired expansion of the network. During the meeting, a network of SPIRAL dynamisers from each territory was formed in order to multiply and decentralize the support to the network.
