Review and prospects in the European groups.
As we announced when the Good Practice Guide was published in 2010 – the first of the post-Brussels 2009 Regional Assembly of Emmaus Europe achievements – we are reviewing the progress of the work on the directory of environmental practices, which aims to inspire each other and pool and above all share our expertise. The work has continued apace.
The survey work has increased our knowledge of the environmental initiatives and processes of reflection in the Emmaus groups in Europe. This snapshot of the European Movement will increase our mutual knowledge of everyone’s practices and will reinforce the exchanges of environmental experience and projects in the Movement. It will also help to boost the debate and concrete knowledge of the issue of degrowth in the Emmaus Europe groups.
It does not aim to be exhaustive or to showcase one group more than another. The aim was to review what is already being done in order to give all the groups the information they need to step up their practices in this area and to encourage the Movement to reflect on environment-related issues.
The sub-section also contains a questionnaire about environmental practices. The questionnaire can be completed by a telephone interview, a meeting or a visit to your group.
These forms of contact can be a chance for the group to reflect together about the questionnaire by submitting it for discussion to all the group’s members and using it to contribute to this European expertise-sharing initiative.
We look forward to receiving your comments and to discussing these issues with you!
