More and more, we are questioning the development model in our society, based mainly on economic growth and not taking into account the externalities, whether they be environmental (pollution) or social (poverty).
The recognition that this model is flawed has fostered the emergence of social movements to bring about change and action: laws, enterprises with social/environmental mission, citizen initiatives, community projects, etc.
In order to avoid the perpetuation of the current logic, we believe it is important to think critically about the various initiatives implemented and their underlying rationales.
Here are some suggestions of blogs to better understand the current context as well as our pressing social and environmental challenges. Have a good read, you might get inspired!
