Solidarity events with seniors

Since its creation, TBS Education students have contributed to developing a cultural programme while involving other TBS Education associations, which come to the café and organise workshops and events for seniors: film-debate, bingo, museum visits, etc.
Pur Projet – Regenerating ecosystems
TBS Education is a partner of Pur Projet, an association to promote agroforestry, and tree planting in the agriculture and/or livestock breeding sector.

The partnership with Pur Projet also involves research seminars organized by TBS Education. Participants in seminars are given the opportunity to offset their travel costs through the funding of trees as part of a “Pur Projet” in the field of agroforestry.
A Croquer – Fruit baskets in the office
Through its partnership with the A Croquer association, TBS Education promotes the concept of “eating well” by sourcing fresh local fruit on behalf of its employees.
For the purchase of each basket of fruit, one euro goes to planting trees as part of agroforestry projects in the Occitanie region, in order to “give something back to nature, which gives so generously to us”.
Awareness-raising workshops about eating more healthily and home-made food are also organized for staff.
SYNETHIC – Responsible purchasing
TBS Education has set up a “responsible purchasing” process with GAREM (Consortium for responsible purchasing in the Midi Pyrénées) and Synethic. For each new call for tender, TBS Education includes social, economic and/or environmental criteria in its assessment grid.
Adaptathon – the Innovation Marathon
TBS Education is a partner of the Adaptathon, a “marathon” of innovative activities organized by Ambition Toulouse Métropole. The aim of the event is to come up with new ideas and develop tangible solutions to help companies adapt their working environments to people with disabilities.
T3C – Toulouse Change Communication Conference
Since 2015, TBS Education and T3C (Toulouse Change Communication Conference) have been organizing discussions and debates focused on more effective and responsible communication:
- Communication, transition and neurosciences: moving towards the end of advertising?
- Faced with an advertising model that hinders transition, how can neurosciences design new, more responsible communication practices?
Our participation in SD & CSR networks
