What is the multi-stakeholder cooperation?
Eclosio don’t conceive its action without a multi-stakeholder cooperation. In all of its processes and projects, cooperation is essential between the stakeholders concerned by specific context and/or issue. It enables them to establish temporary or permanent connections through shared goals that go beyond individual or sector-specific interests without refuting or canceling them.
With that in mind, Eclosio finds itself at the junction of civil society, local expertise and the academic community. It promotes and facilitates synergies between these stakeholders and other entities such as from the public and entrepreneurial sectors. More specifically, these synergies aim at building complete and shared visions of development with each stakeholder’s contribution; it aim at working on an agenda for structural changes, ensuring inclusive and sustainable development and effectively influencing public policies.
The multi-stakeholder cooperation offers a framework and methodology favoring the emergence, the co-building, and the consolidation of new knowledge from their respective knowledge. Thus, Eclosio promotes collective learning, with stakeholders agreeing to build up new knowledge through experience, the will to exchange, and through trial-error processes.
