Operates in a nomad and and agile way on the basis of the pooling of expertise, experiences and networks to implement a whole chain of actors and values up to co-creation.
Acts through three levers of commitment that inspire and federate : social design, know-how and artistic signature.
Relies on its “Slowlab“, an integrated laboratory of reflections, research and experimentation around all the themes covered by the label, in order to explore, open the field of possibilities and develop more innovative, sustainable and human new business models.
