GreenGuest got an award!

The GreenGuest project was awarded by the national Erasmus+ agency of France.

“It is a great recognition of the hard work undertaken! GreenGuest has produced a lot and things which are indeed useful,” said Alain Tambour, one of the members of the project team.

“Bonne Pratique” is the logo of the appreciation that Green Guest project can use from now on.

“We, small independant businesses of the hospitality trade, are extremely grateful to our partners, for the hard work we undertook together in improving our policies, methods, ethos in order to tackle these new issues in a changing world! And particularly to you, our European friends, and of course to Erasmus + for enabling these great  and fruitful encounters! The main goal of our association is the development of our corporate social responsibility: Green Guest was a fantastic opportunity and we are very proud of this award!”

GreenGuest showcased in France

Over 500 visitors were welcomed by “Les Petits Plats Dans Les Grands” and its president Thierry Lhuillery, at the “forum des métiers de l’hôtellerie restauration” in Hérouville st Clair on March,19th. In partnership with the French employment agency, Pôle emploi, over 200 jobs were offered to the participants of the Job Fair by 30 businesses.

Twenty organisations held  a specific stall to display a wide range of offers to support the hospitality industry, including the great variety of the regional Vocational and Ecucational Training offer from the private and public sectors.

GIPFCIP Normandy together with LPPDLG held a very successful stall where Green Guest and Rock the Greens Hub, our Erasmus plus projects were showcased by Fabrice Darrigrand from GIPFCIP. The cartoon video clip “Why does hospitality go green?” by Green Guest partners, created by the Polish company Mosqi.to, was also displayed and raised the interest of the many visitors. A very efficient advertisement campaign had been launched through the internet and social media among which remarkable video clip teasers  by Morgane Moutafis from  LPPDLG, promoting Green Guest and Rock the greens hub approaches.   A lot of visitors had a go at the GREEN QUEST and training organisations expressed their strong wish to use it in their training courses. It confirms the very keen interest of the Estonian, Italian, French learners who recently experimented it in their own pathways with several vocational hospitality high schools.

The next step is the implementation of the Green Challenge in Italy where teams of European learners will compete in the creation of sustainable menus; the Estonian, Italian and French learners will be welcomed next May by NET and  AjA the businesses’ association of Jesolo hospitality entreprises.
