This project is co-managed by the MRES and APES with the support of the CERDD. Across this portal, we hope to:
- bring visibility to regional stakeholders involved in sustainable development and social and solidarity economy
- stimulate participation of inhabitants preferably in collective initiatives and increase availability to these same stakeholders
- facilitate cooperation between stakeholders and networking around an area and/or issue and/or skills
The project, therefore, targets inhabitants, SD and SSE relay stakeholders, as well as non-specialist relay structures.
Many actions today attempt to make inhabitants aware of sustainable development and social and solidary economy issues. Apart from this difficult period of creating awareness that must be pursued, we share the view that there is a lack of services and inhabitant support actions towards action promoting their involvement in collective initiatives. That is one of the project’s goals.
Co-management between the MRES (Maison Régionale de l'Environnement et des Solidarités, a regional centre for the environment and solidarity) and the APES (Acteurs Pour une Economie Solidaire, the stakeholders for a solidarity economy) and the support of the CERDD (Centre Ressource sur le Développement Durable, the resource centre for sustainable development) allows the fragmentation of environmental, economic and social issues.
We target the general public and more specifically, inhabitants who want to be informed on sustainable development and social and solidarity economy in their area.
We want to encourage a desire for action and to be invested in collective initiatives. We also ensure that the tool’s installed functionality serves to inform an unconvinced public.
We also hope that this new tool will be a guide to support cooperation between stakeholders, a motor for exchange of practices, structure a branch, elaborate new projects, mobilize inhabitants…
To be relevant, the tool that we want to develop must become essential. That is why, over and beyond pilot project network facilitation, it is important that a new win-win approach be recommended and that the many partners understand local politics (PLDESS, PCET, agendas 21), for example.
In this sense, we intend to pursue local partnerships and support willing communities to bring this turnkey tool to the local level. Communities will benefit from an existing tool by contributing to its content.
We want to supply the heads of sustainable development and social and solidarity economy networks (URIAE, URSCOP...) to convince them that this is this base is first and foremost an asset to facilitate their activity and envision new partnerships.
Partner appropriation will be realized by developing and integrating the tool on their own sites.
Our project comes from careful thinking between the MRES and its institutional partners. The objective was to recognize stakeholders in the area and allow inhabitants be informed and involved concretely in sustainable development and social and solidarity economy approaches.
A survey of sustainable development and social and solidarity economy stakeholders confirmed an expectation associated to a desire of these same stakeholders to be more visible in this matter and to cooperate more with others around projects and/or territories.
