Convergences Forum: the Ecosystem Fund and the Lemon Aide project as speakers

Posted by Anne-Alice Fievet

Every early September in Paris, takes place the Convergences Forum, that aims to gather all actors from civil society to big corporations to innovate and find solutions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Ecosystem Fund was already invited as a speaker several times. This year, Jean-Christophe Laugée talked about the power of co-creation and its necessity to achieve a systemic change.

“Co-creation is necessary at each step of social innovation. The scalability and replication of pilot projects are requiring stronger cooperation between For profit and Public organizations. Some learnings from our co-creation process in Danone Ecosystem to build a strong partnership: a clear alignment on the impact and the transformation expected, a robust governance to co-decide, shared financial risks through cofunding. Finally, the last essential goal of cooperation to scale is to consolidate common knowledge between actors, in order to build more efficiently on existing models

To get tips and tricks on co-creation from on the ground experience of Ecosystem and its partners, please refer to the Co-creation guide.

And guess what… Lemon Aide, an inclusive recycling project in France also had the opportunity to pitch in front of a large audience, as they had won the Convergences Award for ‘Young startup’ a few months ago.
