From the Éole Project to the Éole Foundation

Newly active, the Éole Foundation is a platform for education and the dissemination of information relating to our fields of action, by synthesizing the abundance of available knowledge and making it accessible to all, all within a framework fun and a plan to integrate into community and cooperative initiatives.

The core of the Fondation Éole is made up of the founding members of the development team of the Éole Project, a place of discovery and wonder about wind power, in Cap-Chat in Gaspésie. They wish to spread their passions and knowledge for the different aspects of our relationship with the environment (energy, food, way of life) on a larger scale.
