Food resilience


Initiative phase: Well established and running

Mesa, La Maison de la Transition: A citizen space at your service and that of the planet.


La Mesa is a Third Place of Transition in Luxembourg. There are evenings, debates, workshops, screenings, readings, concerts with a library and a "free your stuff" zone, the Give-Box.

It is also a grocery store selling organic products and products from the Greater Region, with a focus on bulk sales.

The Resto / Bar is an organic vegetarian restaurant at lunchtime with a daily menu, salads, soups and pies, local organic drinks and snacks during the day.

The place is also open to all those who are committed to this change and who can propose activities, workshops or animations.

It works on conscious consumption, food sovereignty and fair trade.
