Presentation of the webinar

In 2020 the European Green week has chosen to focus on “Nature and Biodiversity”, with the aim to underline the role of biodiversity in the support and stimulation of the economy, especially in a context of post-pandemic world.

Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) have a role to play in the protection of biodiversity as some of them are engaged into social agriculture. Those WISEs have a double goal, first, as WISEs, they are working on the integration of the most disadvantaged people, and have a social impact. Second, they are organic farms working at a small scale, trying to respect the cycle of plants, to not use chemicals, to work with local varieties and to distribute their production in directly to consumer, they have a positive impact on the preservation of the biodiversity. Therefore, WISEs are a good example of enterprises working towards the protection of the biodiversity while ensuring “social justice, fairness and inclusiveness in line with the European Pillar of Social Rights” as the European Commission Communication on “EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030” called for.  As such, their example should be showcased and spread over Europe as part of the solution.

During this webinar we first focused on how WISEs can participate to the preservation of biodiversity and then we focused on three good practices from all over Europe: Hungary, Italy and Romania.

Webinaire dans le cadre de la Semaine verte européenne: “Agriculture sociale, ESI et la protection de la biodiversité”

Date : mercredi 21 octobre de 10h à 11h30

Présentation du webinaire

En 2020 la Semaine verte européenne a choisi de se focaliser sur “Nature et Biodiversité”, avec pour objectif de souligner le rôle de la biodiversité dans le soutien et la stimulation à l’économie, tout spécialement dans le contexte actuel de pandémie.

Certaines entreprises sociales d’insertion (ESI) ont un rôle important à jouer dans la protection de la biodiversité car elles sont engagées dans l’agriculture sociale. Ces ESI ont un double objectif. Tout d’abord, en tant qu’ESI, elles travaillent à l’insertion des personnes les plus désavantagées et elles ont un fort impact social. Deuxièmement, ce sont des exploitations d’agriculture biologique, travaillant à une petite échelle, essayant de respecter le cycle des plantes, de ne pas utiliser de produits chimiques, de travailler en utilisant des variétés locales, de distribuer leur production directement aux consommateurs, … Elles ont de fait un impact positif sur la préservation de la biodiversité. Ainsi, les ESI sont un bon exemple d’entreprises travaillant à la protection de la biodiversité, tout en assurant « la justice sociale, l’équité et l’inclusion en ligne avec le Socle européen des droits sociaux » comme l’a demandé la Commission européenne dans sa « Stratégie pour la biodiversité pour 2030 ».   Ainsi, leur travail se doit d’être présenté et diffuse en Europe comme une solution possible.

Pendant ce webinaire, nous nous sommes focalisé sur la manière dont les ESI peuvent participer à la préservation de la biodiversité et nous avons ensuite présenté trois bonnes pratiques venant de toute l’Europe: Hongrie, Italie et Roumanie.
