Diversity, Solidarity and Humanitarian

Develop is an association whose aim is to promote sustainable development within EDHEC and the Lille metropolitan area through a variety of means:

  • CSR consulting for other EDHEC associations: we provide them with our expertise by proposing solutions to make their events more sustainable.
  • Microfinance: thanks to our partner Initiative France, we take part in committees granting micro-loans to entrepreneurs who don't have the means to access traditional bank loans.
  • We promote the Social Solidarity Economy through our annual event: the FIR (Forum des Initiatives Responsables).
  • Finally, every year, 3 members of the association have the opportunity to go to Togo to work for an NGO, carrying out social microfinance missions for the country's development.
