In this time of unprecedented health crisis, Solidari’Terre presents 3 solidarity initiatives per week to help those in need.
For this fourth edition, Solidari’Terre shares an initiative that is part of the Student Sustainable Development Week 2.0 emlyon organized by the NOISE emlyon (emlyon business school social and environmental innovation association):
Bahuts Solidaires aims to enable students from Seine-Saint-Denis to attend free school support courses given by students during the confinement.
Since its launch, Bahuts Solidaires and its 60 student volunteers have come to the aid of many college students and ensure continuity in learning.
To offer your help, go here: https://bahutssolidaires.fr/2020/03/27/contribuer/.
Don’t hesitate to just share with students who may be interested, they can register here: https://bahutssolidaires.fr/2020/03/26/sinscrire/.
Couturières Solidaires (solidarity seamstresses)
Several initiatives are also emerging on the side of mask making. This is the case of Couturières Solidaires who collect masks sewn by volunteers and organize distribution to people in need (caregivers, patients, workers…) by centralizing requests.
If you know how to sew faster than your shadow, you can also go through the Metropole of Lyon for example, which wants to prepare the deconfinement, and requires at least 40 masks per person.
To sum up: you just have to make and they take care of the rest. Wires, fabrics and elastics can even be made available to you.
So, offer your skills as a fashion designer to Les Couturières Solidaires via:

There is a group for each region!
Le marché vert (the green market)
In this week of sustainable development, Solidari’Terre was keen to share with you a solidarity initiative that supports our farmers and allows you to continue to enjoy yourself during the containment.
Le marché vert is a collaborative map listing all the initiatives already existing or newly implemented throughout the French territory allowing you to continue to enjoy their products: farm sales, farmers’ grocery stores, collection points, basket distributions, AMAP (Associations for the Maintenance of Peasant Agriculture) opening their doors to the public, markets having obtained a waiver from the prefect, etc.
By sourcing through these distribution channels, you support a life-friendly agriculture but also a virtuous economic model. It is essential that the women and men who work every day to feed the people can continue to sell their production, otherwise some farms will not recover, that is also sustainable development!
To access the map in question: https://lemarchevert.fr/
Everyone can contribute freely and simply by informing all the open initiatives they are aware of, via this online form.
In advance, thank you for the time you will devote to us and do not hesitate to share your actions with us,
See you next week!
