Villages Vivants – CREST, FRANCE
apply before October 3rd in 2022
++ In many villages and small towns in rural areas, there are a large number of empty premises (cafés, grocery shops, etc.) and wastelands (factories, factories, stations, post offices, etc.). In the villages, when a café, a bakery or a grocery shop goes away, daily services and community life go with it.
Faced with this situation, the Villages Vivants cooperative proposes to support the installation of new economic projects in rural areas:
by acquiring, renovating and renting out shops, premises and derelict buildings. Thanks to the savings of local residents and solidarity investors, the collective ownership of real estate allows the installation of project leaders from the social and solidarity economy and local businesses.
by supporting territories, local authorities, collectives and entrepreneurs who are considering the creation of new places or the control of land, and who wish to meet the needs of the inhabitants (multi-shops, third places, recycling centres, etc.), and who wish to be supported by practitioners in a cooperative approach.
Through training in Villages Vivants’ preferred subjects and professions: real estate for collective projects, finance, complex economic and legal arrangements, non-profit, public-private and cooperative projects, etc.
