02 Jun Workshop on the ecological transition and presentation of the TEDDA project
On 15 June 2023, Apes (Acteurs pour économie solidaire) is organising a meeting dedicated to ecological transition. This gathering event will focus on improving the practices of SSE (social and solidarity economy) stakeholders, with a highlight on the TEDDA project (Ecological transition and sustainable development of associations) on the ecological transition of associations.
This event is open to anyone interested in the social and solidarity economy who is working or wants to start working on the transition..
It will take place at the “Lille Métropole Musée d’Art Moderne (LaM).
Debate starts at 2pm and it will provide an opportunity to understand the paths taken by the actors involved, and the obstacles and opportunities they face.
The Maison des Associations de Tourcoing will tell us how the European TEDDA project emerged to offer tools to associations wishing to reduce their environmental impact. The discussion will be followed by a workshop to exchange best practice.
“What are the priorities in starting the ecological transition and improving environmental practices? Where should we start? How can we proceed? “
The TEDDA project is supported by Europe as part of Erasmus +.
On the schedule:
Following the round-table “the role of improving the practices of SSE actors in transitions”, a specific workshop is dedicated to the ecological transition of associations.
1) To find out how and what to do to reduce their environmental impact, so that SSE players are in harmony with their values.
– What can I do?
– How do I get involved?
– How do I find concrete examples?
– How do I get my organisation to implement change?
– How do I move from motivation to action?
2) Find out about all the resources available in the region to help you take action and get support if you need it.
The various tools produced as part of the TEDDA project will be presented at the event, particularly the “methodological guide to initiate the ecological transition in associations“.
This guide is aimed at employees, volunteers, users and members, to help them work together and get the association involved in an ecological transformation. The goal is to inspire the men and women who are part of an association to take action.
- A methodology to help you question your practices in different areas (purchasing, waste, mobility, buildings and flows, digital).
- Information on the ecological impact of the actions carried out and resources for those wishing to go further.
- Toolkits to help you get started and initiate ambitious projects.
- Examples from associations based in different European countries, showing that it is possible to make progress, even if you are a small organisation without a lot of resources.
Small and medium-sized SSE organisations run only by volunteers or by no more than 25 employees.
A collective intelligence workshop:
1) Introduction to the project and its objectives
2) Collective intelligence time:
- In which areas has your organisation evolved, or could it?
- How have you already taken action or how could you do so?
- Exchanges and sharing of experiences
3) Presentation of regional resources
