Like every great story, the Proximity adventure begins with a meeting between two transition enthusiasts: Be Planet, which has the experience of dialogue with businesses and municipalities in order to find funding and means for the transition, and the Transition Network (Réseau Transition), which has mastered the art of inspiring and boosting citizen projects. By pooling their energies, they have developed the “Proximity” programme, at municipality level, allowing everyone in the community to get involved according to their means and desires. Proximity’s ambition is to create an innovative ecosystem bringing together public authorities, businesses, citizens and associations to support local civic projects.
How do you motivate local businesses to get significantly involved in the ecological transition of their municipality, by helping local projects? During an hour-long participatory session, you can contribute to the implementation of a real ecological transition at local level, and together with us, identify the obstacles and opportunities to businesses engaging with innovative local projects.
