The Initative Developpement Citoyen (IDC) is a cooperative founded in April 2010 in Lastours, France with the aim to promote sustainable development, international mobility, active citizenship, mutual cooperation, ecological engagement, and awareness of different cultures.
Our eco-label structure host a small campsite in the middle of nature, wich is based on eco-tourism and heritage preservation, in a linked intercultural process. The campsite has 20 spaces for caravans and tents and is an oasis of peace and serenity for campers. IDC upholds the principles of sustainable tourism in the campsite.
The cooperative also organizes and hosts Erasmus-funded projects that aim to provide learning and capacity-building opportunities for the youth. The projects hosts volunteers from Europe, south America and Southeast Asia and focuses on topics related to knowledge exchange, communications, and sustainable development.
IDC organizes different activities, events and workshops ranging from topics on ecological building, farming, maintenance of vegetable gardens and greenhouses, and hosting costumers. Given our focus on sustainable development, we encourage the involvement of volunteers or participants who appreciate living in nature and understand the need for ecological preservation.
