Eric Lavillunière

Eric has some experience in local development and in the European and international social economy. He is in charge of REconomy. This project provides collaborative guidance and support to regenerative entrepreneurs. The idea behind REconomy is to examine the potential engagement in communities in a participatory way.

Johny Diderich

Johny coordinates the project wandel.bar (which is the German word for ‘changeable’). The wandel.bar is an open platform that organises workshops with a focus on fulfilling the daily needs of our everday lives by making things ourselves. We do everything ourselves in the most sustainable way possible and in a community. Things that have been made range from toothpaste to spreads, wild herb pestos, detergents, tiny houses and much more.
