ECOSOUM IS A MONGOLIAN ASSOCIATION FOR TRANSITION AND LOCAL RESILIENCE BASED ON ECOLOGICAL AND SOLIDARITY VALUES.
Founded in Khishig-Undur, in the Mongolian countryside, the organization aims to empower its inhabitants so they can make their soum (village/district) a model of autonomous and sustainable community that can inspire the whole country.
MORE SPECIFICALLY, ECOSOUM FOCUSES ITS WORK ON FIVE MAIN FIELDS OF ACTION.
In order to best meet the needs expressed by the population, the association seeks to support any type of local initiative that contribute to strengthen the soum’s autonomy and resilience, even outside these topics.
ECO-CONSTRUCTION AND HOUSE INSULATION
SUSTAINABILITY OF TRADITIONAL BREEDING
ECOSOUM IS THE FRUIT OF THE INITIATIVE OF A FRENCH-MONGOLIAN COUPLE LIVING IN KHISHIG-UNDUR.
The association members strive to develop a citizen dynamic in order to involve as many volunteers as possible among the inhabitants of the village.
TRULY UNDERSTANDING ECOSOUM'S APPROACH AND ITS WORK REQUIRES FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THE MONGOLIAN CONTEXT.
With its vast steppes with extreme continental climate, its dual nomadic and post-communist heritage, its traditional breeding of five animals, and its small population scattered over its huge territory, Mongolia is an absolutely unique country.
