Best practice by Vosgelis, France
The “Vivre l’Eco Logis” educational apartment is intended to welcome residents of social housing areas and the general public to learn about eco-gestures in a fun and simple way, enabling them to reduce their energy bills. The project is run by Vosgelis.
It also helps to build good contact between the inhabitants (Vosgelis tenants and others) and the stakeholders in efforts to reduce energy prices. The apartment, which is located in the heart of a priority district of the town, allows us to meet the needs of the inhabitants in terms of accompaniment in the control of their expenses and to return purchasing power.
The project also encouraged the training of young job seekers to act as educational staff of the apartment: two leaders were recruited by Face Vosges and were able to learn the new professions as energy training instructors.
There are three main aims to this project: controlling energy, the fight against social isolation and supporting the tenants in employment, training, integration and services.
