The Public Participation Charter from the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea December 2016

The Public Participation Charter from the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea December 2016

The Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea has published the Charter of Public Participation:


This Charter of Public Participation makes every project transparent and helps to build trust among the many actors. The Charter is intended for organisations or individuals who recognise themselves in its values and commit to promoting them. The signatories therefore organise consultation apparatus for all decisions affecting the living environment. The Ministry of the Environment, Energy and the Sea aims to modernise environmental dialogue and to complement existing legislative measures.


This text on the democratisation of environmental dialogue highlights the need for public participation with a clear, shared framework on the nature of the project, its organiser, the subject of debate, alternative scenarios, the role of the public in the decision, communication, etc. Moreover, the participation of the public also requires an open-minded spirit in order to accept the differences of opinion, to  promote the appropriation of the subject by the participants and to develop a culture of participation. Its mobilisation is facilitated through public participation. Moreover, participation encourages each citizen’s abuility to take the initiative in what they can bring to the debate such as information, expertise, tools, etc.


An event to publicise the Charter and its adherents will take place on 14th December 2016 at the Cabinet Ministerériel in Paris.

For information on the Charter, please contact:

Resolis invites you to the Open Forum "What transitions are there in education to create society?" on 26th November

Resolis invites you to the Open Forum "What transitions are there in education to create society?" on 26th November

Whether taking place in public or private institutions or in other areas, initiatives aiming to renew the education system are increasing. Their point in common? To try to respond to the social, political and technical transformations that are going through our society by offering new models of education. It’s in fact in this context that many initiatives have been launched by individuals, associations, private and public actors, some for or not for profit, either inside or outside of the national education framework.

In order to avoid the risk of two-speed education, which inevitably increases inequality, it is essential to reflect on the factors that will allow, not a revolution, but a transition to an education system that effectively addresses the challenges of the twenty-first century. As the contribution of research must be understood to be used, this will be a societal reflection which must bring together the different stakeholders in educational renewal (teachers, researchers, parents, but also associations, administrations, local authorities, private or public enterprises) and that’s why the Lab School Network is inviting you to its second open forum to collectively reflect on this question.

This event is organised by the Lab School Network in partnership with EHESS, the Resolis association, the Interdisciplinary Research Centre, the Federation of Schools for Educational Transition and Printemps de l’education.

It will be held simultaneously in different French towns. The venues will be released bit by bit on this page.

So come on 26th November 2016 from 9:30, to discuss, meet and implement concrete actions (interventions in schools, surveys, documentaries, exhibitions, conferences, etc.).

RESOLIS Study: State of initiatives of French local authorities that promote agricultural and food transition

RESOLIS Study: State of initiatives of French local authorities that promote agricultural and food transition

RESOLIS conducted a study for the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation within the framework of the First Encounters for Sustainable Food, organised on 8th November 2016 in Paris.


This study provides an overview of local authority initiatives that promote agricultural or food transition. It highlights models to re-territorialise food systems operated by different actors but also exemplary projects operated or supported by French local authorities.


This work was based on the fact sheets collected in the RESOLIS Observatory as well as the outlooks and testimonies of about ten actors of sustainable food who were questioned.
