Since the beginning of the adventure danone.communities, we met many experts in development topics such as access to water, malnutrition and the fight against poverty. For the community to benefit from those meetings with these exchanges and debates that they generate, danone.communities starts a cycle of workshops to gather regularly those people. Danone.communities workshops offer a forum for dialogue on innovative solutions to development issues and malnutrition among the poorest, in all countries. Each workshop is structured around one or more expert testimonies, followed by a discussion. These meetings are transcribed in the a report sent to participants and posted on our site. On 26 May 2009, thirty persons (NGOs, companies, journalists, students, Danoners) gathered in La Cantine for the first workshop on the issue of access to water for rural populations in the poorest developing countries. François Jaquenoud, co-founder of 1001 fontaines for tomorrow, presented the model of this social business supported by danone.communities. Jacques Monvois, GRET Program Manager for access to water and electricity, Jean-Claude Vidal, former technical director Danone Waters, project manager for "1001 Fontaines pour demain", and Eric Lesueur, Projects Director at Veolia Eaux, then shared their experiences in this field. What are existing models of access to water for the poorest populations? What partners to prefer? Is there an ideal model to run?> The minutes of the first workshop danone.communities here.The pictures of the event here. Translation powered by Google Translation.
