[BONI.D 💡🚶‍♂️] Moovance: the app that helps reduce the carbon footprint of our journeys

87% of the French population wishes to have better control over the carbon footprint of their mobility, a fact that Anas Mbasso and Janik Added utilized to create the Moovance app last year. The idea is to encourage users to become aware of the carbon impact of their mobility habits through concrete data. The assessment and management of this information enable them to gain a clearer understanding of how to reduce their carbon footprint in an engaging manner.


Its goal? To assist citizens and businesses in transforming their mobility to achieve the CO2 reduction target set by the Paris Agreement.


A great idea!

Crisis and Transition: Shifting Paradigms for a Sustainable Future

A crisis is a transitional period that necessitates a paradigms’ shift: “Current imperatives, particularly those related to material shortages and the challenges of the climate crisis, compel us to finally make necessary decisions” emphasized Maud Caubet in BIG Magazine earlier this year. Indeed, while Covid has prompted a pause for reflection, it has also set a course of action: how to utilize what’s already present, reinvigorate the artisanal sector and promote the use of bio-sourced materials?


These insights can be found in the November issue of BIG – Business Immo Global.

[BONI.D] JADE association provides resources for young caregivers!

42.5% of teenagers have a close relative affected by illness or disability. Many of them become young caregivers, meaning a child or teenager under 18 who regularly provides significant assistance to a sick family member, someone with a disability and/or facing a loss of autonomy. This is a genuine public health issue.


To help them navigate their reality, JADE association offers resources for caregivers and their families, allowing them to take a break, connect with other young individuals, express themselves about their situation and feel supported. Thus, JADE organizes workshops, interregional trips, raises awareness, and provides a space for expression and/or training for these young caregivers.


It’s a solidary and necessary initiative that Les Grandes Idées congratulates!
