Our partnerships

L'école des semeurs

Since January 2020, the Sowing School has been welcoming young "school dropouts" (15-18 years old) to Beaumesnil castle (27), to train them and qualify them for the job of market gardener and sellers of organic fruit and vegetables based on the pedagogy of the Production Schools. In collaboration with different actors, this school is developing a garden-market gardener-school in order to allow young people with social and academic difficulties to regain a taste for their lives. It is the first School of Production to offer training in the agricultural sector.

ACCES (Accueil Contact Conseil Emploi Services) is an integration structure through economic activity and an actor in the social and solidarity economy. ACCES has been carrying out a solidarity mobility platform since 2017 which is developing a mobility offer across the entire Intercom Bernay Terres de Normandie territory. In the 1st quarter of 2020, a solidarity garage workshop was implemented with the assistance of ALiS.

For the second time, in 2021, ALiS is partnering with ACCÉS, social and solidarity economy actor.

The will of the association ACCÉS is to develop a new service offer in the Bernay employment area to meet the needs of the territory:

  • to create a step of remobilization of the public very far from the employment and of discovery of trades which are accessible to them. This step is a first step towards active inclusion.
  • to design and implement, with potential employers and the actors of inclusion and training, innovative and relevant "individual and collective support programs", adapted to both the needs and capacities of the people who will be the beneficiaries and which will allow to respond to local employment and recruitment issues, in particular in the agricultural sector where the tensions in this area are high.
  • to contribute to respond to different societal needs of the rural territory in which the project is situated: ageing, low attractiveness, isolation of people, weakening of social links and solidarity, lack of initiatives, projects and jobs, etc.

This project of creation of a Workshop for Integration by ACCÉS was made possible by the acquisition on July 28, 2020 of an old Norman farm, located in a privileged rural area at the gates of the city of Bernay and to the institutional, technical and associative partnership dynamics gathered around this new project. This site, which includes 4 residential buildings, stables, farm buildings, a cider press, an orchard, etc., offers a great deal of modularity and, consequently, numerous perspectives in terms of use.

ALiS is proud to support the creation of this project!

Domaine National du Haras du Pin 

ALiS is financing, along with the Orne Departmental Council, the implementation of a rental site for electric vehicles. Dedicated to the many tourists and the 120,000 visitors and participants in the annual events of the Versailles of the Horse, these new means of travel will allow all to discover the 1100 hectares in a funny way. This offer is available in electric bicycles, golf carts or other electric toy vehicles. As the stud covers a large area, these vehicles make the visit easier in an ecological and enjoyable way and provide a fuller experience for the visitors.

RustiK is a theme park that is currently being developed near the Sées interchange, in the Orne department and scheduled to open in 2021. Having a medieval fantastic theme, RustiK will be a place for adventures, quests and legends! ALiS is backing the creation of this theme park, the first of its type in France.

The park wants to be a pionner in neo-tourism. A real environmental policy frames the creation and development of this tourist center. The creation, maintenance and preservation of wooded areas is a priority for the park teams. For this reason, afforestation actions are planned throughout the development of the park. The construction of the park will be subject to compensatory afforestation, of course, but this approach will be extended by taking into account the CO² emissions of park visitors coming.

ALiS financially supports RustiK in this ambitious process of carbon offsetting and also provides land for afforestation actions.

Intercommunal Center for Social Actions of Brionne

The Intecommunal Center for Social Actions of "Bernay Terres de Normandie" has set up an integration project to welcome people with social or professional difficulties with the aim of returning to work.

The themes of the integration site are the valorisation of green spaces.

In 2021, ALIS has called on the Intecommunal Center for Social Actions to clear the piers of the Risle and Bec viaducts. The cleaning of the piers of the two viaducts will enable topographic surveys to be carried out to monitor the evolution of the structure. The integration site carried out the felling and clearing of all the piers (press release).

In 2019, ALiS has entrusted the Center for Social Action with various integration projects, such as the cleaning of wasteland and undergrowth, and the crushing of branches on several sites. 

City of Bernay

The town of Bernay is committed to a policy of revitalising its territory. This involves, in particular, joining the "Small Towns of Tomorrow" programme, but also conducting a real reflection on the attractiveness of the town and its quality of life on a daily basis for its inhabitants. Education, access to culture, and support for young people and their families are all priorities that the municipal team has set itself.

In this complicated health and economic context, the City has nevertheless decided to develop major structuring projects for culture and youth. As far as education is concerned, the City wishes to offer all its schools a programme to modernise their IT tools. Indeed, the first confinement highlighted the great disparities that could exist between families in terms of access to digital technology and its ability to be used for educational purposes. Distance learning has also suffered greatly in our commune due to these inequalities.

Consequently, the community proposes to equip its five public elementary schools, one of which is located in a "Politique de la Ville" district, with high-performance digital equipment enabling teachers to conduct interactive teaching sessions, but also to accompany children in the use of IT tools.

ALiS is proud to contribute to the financing of this project. In addition, ALiS contributes materially to the project by donating its office computer equipment when it is renewed every 3 to 4 years. The number of computers involved is approximately 30 laptops (press release).

City of Saint-Denis sur Sarthon and TREES EVERYWERE

ALiS is working with TreesEverywhere in Saint Denis sur Sarthon, in the Orne region, to plant trees.

The planting will be carried out by an ESAT and according to the Myawaki method, i.e. with a high density.

The reforestation of this land aims to capture CO2 and create a biodiversity refuge with a local social impact.

Le Canoë Kayak Club de Brionne

A cleaning project on the Risle river was organized by the canoe kayak club brionne with the support of ALiS including the installation of two educational panels: The viaduct of “La Risle” river and the sensitive natural area of the Moulin d'Aclou

Our rivers need cleaning actions to preserve their biodiversity for the proper functioning of ecosystems. Managing ice jams is important for the free flow of water and the risk of flooding.

Watercolour festival of Bec-Hellouin

ALiS is a partner of the Bec-Hellouin Watercolour Festival. Normandy is a region that has inspired many artists, it is the cradle of impressionism. Watercolour is an art that suits Normandy.

L'ensemble Correspondances

Founded in 2009, the Correspondances ensemble brings together, under the direction of harpsicordist and organist Sébastien Daucé, a troupe of singers and instrumentalists specialists in 17th century music. 

In 2020, the Correspondances ensemble set up in the Normandy region, and as such developed dissemination and transmission residency projects in the heart of rural areas far from major cultural circuits, the objects of this partnership. As a counterpoint to its concert season, the ensemble now uses crossroads by bicycle to reconstitute, on a small scal, a form of territorial equity in the Normandy region, by broadcasting a small format program, specially created for the opportunity.

In 2021, a nex tour on the Normandy roads will be organized in the Pays d'Ouche. At aech stage, Correspondances will mobilize local actors, and will offer participatory events combining music, heritage discovery and crafts. Baroque music discovery workshops will be offered to families before each performance. The concerts will be followed by a convivial meal shared between the public and the artists. Finally the public will be invited to accompany the musicians by bicycle on their journey between each concert venue.
