Fondation de France’s ‘Dynamique Territoriales’ programme aims to help people in need by supporting the emergence of projects in six specific areas in France with social difficulties. Its aim is to improve the inhabitants’ daily life and to promote co-operation amongst local actors to take on mutual challenges in their areas together.
Every programme is developed by the different actors and the residents from the area and, as a team, they work together to implement the project from A to Z. Meetings with inhabitants are held to identify ideas and projects to improve local life. The interaction, training and working together to transform their ideas into real projects in the areas where support is really required has the positive effect of creating bonds and developing new forms of solidarity.
Since the launch of ‘Dynamique Territoriales’ in 2014, 358 initiatives have been identified, 58 ideas have been assisted and 82 projects have been supported by over €1m in financial contributions.
