Initiative phase: Well established and running

The factory of collaborative alternatives, local and innovative initiatives contributing to the circular economy.


Facilitec is a third place that offers to host projects, entrepreneurs, project leaders and events around the values of the ecological transition and the circular economy. The initiative develops its activities around the 5R themes: refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and return to the earth to adopt a zero waste lifestyle. A third place anchored in its territory, co-managed and co-constructed by the collective intelligence of its members. The place has been co-renovated with participative workcamps and most of the materials and supplies are reused. It also houses the cyber'n'ethique project, which teaches video game design and the use of free software.
