Embark the ecological transition of associations with the TEDDA guide

Friday, 28 July 2023

The TEDDA methodological guide to improving associations' internal ecological transition practices is now available! It is aimed at associations that want to improve their practices and reduce their environmental impact, but are not specialists in environmental issues.

Many associations see their actions as part of a drive to move towards a more responsible society, one that is more respectful of people and nature. However, many of them encounter obstacles and difficulties in changing their practices to limit their environmental impact.

To meet this need, the guide "Embarking on the ecological transition - A methodological guide to improving internal practices in associations" is aimed at employees, volunteers, users, members... to help them work as a team, as a collective, and commit their association to an ecological transformation. The aim is to inspire the men and women who make up small and medium-sized associations (with between zero and 25 employees) to take action.

The guide offers a methodology for questioning one's practices in six areas: purchasing, waste, mobility, buildings and flows, digital technology and biodiversity. It provides information on the ecological impact of actions taken and offers resources for those wishing to go further. Tool sheets are provided to help people get started and launch ambitious projects. The guide also presents examples of associations in different European countries, showing that it is possible to make progress, even if you are a small organisation with few resources.

Discover the methodology guide on the TEDDA website in French, English et Spanish.

This guide has been produced as part of the European project TEDDA (Ecological transition of associations). Aimed at supporting European associations in their ecological transition through the creation of innovative training tools, the TEDDA project is a strategic partnership funded by the European Union's Erasmus+ programme, bringing together 5 partners in 3 European countries: Belgium, Spain and France.

You can also reserve your place at the final public conference of the TEDDA project, in Brussels on Thursday 30 November 2023, by filling in this form (registration is free and compulsory). This conference will showcase all the project's achievements, give you the chance to listen to and debate the contributions of experts, and put you in touch with stakeholders from Belgium, France and Spain.
