- Type of initiative : Initiative involving different people (collective, etc.)
- Valence-Romans Agglo
- Romans sur Isère
- Start date : février 2016
Residents are thought to be in the best position to bring to light needs and solutions in their area through collective intelligence, collaboration and reappropriating the economy.
Involving them allows new responses, innovative projects and initiatives based on the area's resources to be invented. Projects then emerge in the circular economy: short circuits, renewable energies, artisan or industrial relocation, tourism, etc.
When residents are brought together, in a space where benevolence, creativity and entrepreneurial responsibility can flourish, new ideas emerge about the use of the area's resources.
In the Valence-Romans area (Valence-Romans Agglo), bringing together so many people via Local Start-ups has given rise to new ways of achieving economic development.
The initiative allows projects to develop quickly in response to unmet needs in the area. It makes people aware of certain needs
