“Let us combine our forces for the general interest”

Here is their platform: “Inequalities, education, health, climate change, food, housing … So many social and environmental challenges, accentuated by the crisis, that we must overcome to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. UN by 193 countries in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sustainable Development Goals give us the way forward.

Everyone, more or less in their own corridor, associations, companies, public authorities and citizens, is already mobilized. It’s time to bring down the walls, trust our collective intelligence and join forces. For a truly attainable 2030 agenda, what if we all got down to it? The results of the Urgence-Covid-Citoyens survey are eloquent. 81% of French people say that to get out of the crisis, it is useful to “play collectively” between associations, companies, public authorities, citizens, etc. The French support the “duty of alliance”.

Already in 2015, he told the UN that “multi-stakeholder partnerships will be essential to take advantage of the interconnections between the SDGs”: SDG17 to resolve the 16 others. It is time to abandon competition to adopt cooperation, in the service of the common good! How to develop the alliance of all to meet the challenges of the 21st century? Let’s not be afraid of this paradigm shift. Mistrust between actors who do not know each other is nothing compared to the measured results that flow from the alliance. Members of Parliament from various territories, we see the actors coming together to act. Territorial catalysts, local authorities, associations, companies, academics, citizens, we are working every day to develop a more sustainable food circuit, support for distance learning courses, a place of welcome for people without fixed domicile etc.

The alliance is born out of a desire to respond effectively to a local need with concrete solutions. It is an opportunity for strong democratic stimulation which engages the actors in the response to this need. Concretely, the alliance must become a reflex. For this we must free our capacity to act.

The Occurrence study for Ticket for Change reveals that, when it comes to socio-environmental issues, 94% of French people want to act, 35% have ideas to act, 20% actually act and 6% devote their work to taking action . This desire is also expressed more and more in companies. Employee-citizens want their company, too, to be part of this dynamic of commitment to the service of the common good. So what’s the plan?

Transform: let’s structure the Collective Impact à la Française in order to network needs, players and resources and bring together all the existing mechanisms. Unite: let us bring together the human, material and logistical resources of the territories in order to build projects there as close as possible to the needs that the actors consider to be priorities. Let us support them with a national program of massive investment in the territories for “the transition through Collective Impact” by creating the SDG17 Fund.

Spread out: let’s develop places of exchange and duplicate what works so that everyone can mobilize. Secure: let’s create an alliance law, experimental, non-binding, to secure the general interest alliance process and allow it to innovate. Train: let’s launch an education and initial and continuing training plan in commitment and partnership logic: educating to think differently to do things together differently is a major issue in the transition to a new model The field has been experimenting and succeeding for several years of creating the alliance, the public authorities now have a role of trigger and facilitator to play, so that solutions to the challenges of the SDGs can emerge even more frequently, more sustainably, and everywhere in France.

“The ego of great souls always tends to become collective”, wrote Victor Hugo. Beyond the inclinations for the collective already declared, it is each company, association, local authority, citizen that we will support towards “doing it together”. It is the glue of our social cohesion. We commit ourselves, on our respective territories and in our reconciled “worlds”, to put an end to the law of the strongest alone, to write the law of the most impactful together. “
