2020 Call for projects

Appel à projets 2020

(Reserved for VIVESCIA's cooperative members and employees of the Group)

After several years of backing initiatives to do with rural communities, farming, and food, Le CŒUR de VIVESCIA wanted to support projects that members of the VIVESCIA community are involved in.

As such, between 1 September and 15 October 2020, the association organised its first call for projects, aimed at member-farmers of the cooperative and employees of VIVESCIA Group! Up for grabs: two €3,000 prizes for the two winning projects.

How will the winning projects be selected?
This prize will be awarded by the CŒUR de VIVESCIA jury; made up of its board of directors, and its ambassadors. The jury will also have to select three other projects, which will be submitted to VIVESCIA's farmers and employees for a vote through the Group's internal communication networks. The second prize will be awarded to the project that obtains the most votes.

What projects can I recommend?

Projects that contribute to the dynamism of rural communities and quality of life in the countryside.
E.g.: Creating a demonstration beehive to raise awareness of the essential role bees play in our ecosystem, and to enable citizens to discover bee products; helping to create or reopen small businesses or places for social interaction in rural areas; etc.

Projects that help to promote sustainable local farming.

E.g. Supporting the creation of a teaching farm; support for farmers diversifying into short supply chains: farm shops, collective farmers' shops, farm drive-throughs, etc.

Projects that promote sustainable food and solidarity.

E.g. Opening a charity food shop with your colleagues or friends; starting a cookery workshop to promote nutrition education, social insertion, and sustainable consumer action; etc.

Projects submitted must be collective in nature; encourage entrepreneurship, social insertion, training, or the local economy of our regions; and have a positive social, societal, environmental, or economic impact.

And finally, projects submitted must be in the initial phase or still in the planning phase.

Timeline for the call for projects.
The call for projects opens on: 1 September 2020
Deadline for the submission of applications: 15 October 2020
First prize awarded by the CŒUR de VIVESCIA jury: end of November
Deadline for the Group's farmers and employees vote to award the second prize: 20 December
