Low-techs Market

In order to meet and make ourselves known in the neighborhood we’ve organized a “Low-tech market” held on the 19th of December. On the same week-end is the International Migrants day and on this occasion we propose to imagine alternative Christmas holidays with low tech gifts, workshops and animations.

Sharing what we have done with a specific partner

We have co-organized a regional event with Ademe on the low-tech approach: What projects should we work on together now? And brought together various actors of the low-tech scene in the PACA region (research actors, associations, communities and companies).
