Contexts and practices
This video gathers testimonies from people who work on a daily basis in environmental education and sustainable development in the territories of the ETRES programme partners.
They are therefore regularly involved in supporting ecological transition initiatives.

An evolving profession
The support of the "citizen dynamics" in ecological transition is obvious and fundamental and is part of the logical continuation of sustainable development.
This is a very recent concept that is changing the profession of environmental educators, who are increasingly in a position to support the implementation of public policies in the region by leading citizen dynamics.

A position of neutrality
The project leader often has a vision and interests to defend in a project.
For Philippe Barret, we will not defend its vision, we will take it into account in the same way as those of the other actors.
The word dynamic citizens is a bit abusive because often initiatives are public. Citizens are involved, but it is rarely them that we support

Experts' words

Experts provide particular insight into situations, contexts, postures and professional practices. These videos illustrate the different modules of the training system.

Empowering people to act
An ecological transition project is first and foremost about taking charge of an idea or a need carried by a person, a group, a community or a group of inhabitants...

We are slowly and gradually entering into what could be called an educational process.

The concept of ecological transition
This video discusses the concept of ecological transition. Rob Hopkins meets Colin Campbell, who founded ASPO, the international association that will study the peak oil. There is a form of urgency to change course. This video was produced by Transition Italia, the Italian ecological transition movement.

Characterize the project
The approach is similar to that of supporting local development projects, with a few nuances. But here will be added the "characterization" of the project.

To this end, we will insist on its impact, its sustainability, its educational dimension for the territory.....

Supporting is getting closer to educating
It is a more active and distant way of educating people or a group and sometimes to be in front, sometimes next door.

It also means contributing and participating, but in a slightly different way in order to facilitate the progress of the project and its empowerment by the people.

There is a lot of talk today about "facilitation."

A process of transformation
The educational dimension in accompaniment can be perceived in two ways:
- either from the point of view of the facilitator, or the accompanying person, and in this case he/she sets educational objectives in advance.
- we can also have the vision of informal education: it is designed to advance a person or a group... It will bring something more and different.

Fostering participation
  • Jean-Michel Cornu european expert in the field of cooperation and collective intelligence gives keys to encourage involvement in a group around a project.

Each type of proactive-reactive participant - inactive - observer - will be able to find their place, and take a step forward to further engage in a project.

Participatory evaluation
There are different ways to evaluate a project. In ETRES, we are in a position, a choice of a participatory approach, of empowering people to move towards ecological transition.

We therefore collectively chose to be in the same approach for the evaluation.
It is "participatory evaluation"...

When citizens get organized
When citizens spontaneously organize themselves to deal with environmental issues in their territory, how does the educational process work? What educational resources can we rely on?
These are the research questions of Michalis Fotiadis, engineer and EESD trainer, in Greece

Analysis of professional practices
From the moment you have a group that has experience and lived professional situations, and a certain number of questions to ask about your professional life, you can propose a sequence where you will pose a question about your work.

It is the analysis of professional practices.

World café
This tool makes it possible to create a dynamic of dialogue around key or socially lively issues. A technique to organize the work of a group around small workshops.

Put the body in motion
Émilie Guilleminot, from Graine Occitanie, analyses an animation called "alarm clock morning" through an explanatory interview.

This type of animation consolidates the cohesion of a group and allows everyone to move through an exercise that, to remain playful, gives many indications about the state of mind of each and everyone.

Il giardino fiorito
The flower garden is an activity inspired by Hervé Tullet's workshops.
Such an activity brings out the collective energy and creativity of the group, a work of art created together, each with its own subjectivity.
It is an incentive towards a better cohesion and sharing between the participants who work together in the journey

Evaluate in movement
Dominique Cottereau, program evaluator, leads an evaluation session on the partnership and the functioning of the project based on a simple and user-friendly principle based on three statements: "I liked", "I didn't like it too much" and "I would like that".
This process makes it possible to share feelings and evaluate the dynamics of a group and a project.

Develop a support strategy
A team from the Lozère environmental education network is developing a strategy to support a project on water management.

It is a question of moving from a facilitator's posture to that of a coach based on resource persons and local skills. The members of the team will discuss their vision of this support and mark out the steps.

To accompany is not to animate
Sandrine Cendrier , of the Lozère environmental education network is leading a work sequence on the theme of project support for students of the professional degree "Coordination of projects in environmental education and sustainable development.

It presents some pedagogical tools while distinguishing between the function of animation and that of accompaniment.

Validate options (2)
Once the stakes have been defined, we will move on to a validation phase: uses, objectives, needs, destination of the developments....

Participants work in subgroups on the various uses.

This video, debriefed by the facilitator, highlights the ability of working groups to self-organize. (Length of the video: 22 minutes)

Finding an agreement (3)
The time comes for a decision. We come back in a focus group and we have to choose the direction of the project.

Depending on the feedback from the various workshops, points to be discussed or clarified appear.

We are moving towards the finalization of the project. (Length of the video: 12 minutes)

On walks and hikes - Ticks, good practices
Ticks are a real health issue in Occitania and are the subject of communication by many media.
