Posted on: July 10th, 2013 by

On June 12, the Quebec Action Fund for Sustainable Development (FAQDD) and the selection committee of its iDDées contest selected seven out of 182 sustainable development proposals. The FAQDD will provide practical support to these seven projects that represent emerging ideas in sustainable development.

“Ultimately, we hope that the deployment of these iDDées in structured projects, supported by the best partners, allows us to realize the full potential of these initiatives behavioral changes in addition to respond to various issues relevant to society Quebec” says FAQDD executive director, Ms. Véronique Jampierre.

Congratulations to Coopérative de solidarité les Valoristes for winning 4th prize. FAQDD and the iDDées contest will support the Valoristes in accomplishing their vision of establishing a bottle depot cooperative in Montreal. The solidarity cooperative in Montreal aims to “protect and promote the role of ‘valoristes’, a person who can easily integrate the conventional job market and contribute to the collection of documented and reusable materials as compensation and return returnable containers”.
