The CBE, territorial social dialogue and development

The CBE Sud Luberon is a local non-profit organisation dedicated to Extended Local Social Dialogue.

Its objective is to promote employment, highlighting and supporting local initiatives. Private or public, individual or collective, it seeks to create synergies linked to economic activities, land planning and human potentials on which the South Luberon identity is based.

Founded in 1982, it is recognized by prefectural agreement since the 2nd august 2004 : granted for three years, the agreement is based on specifications and an action program elaborated in consultation with the State services.

Representatives of the devolved State services and Local Authorities are systematically associated to the CBE projects. The Board of Directors, composed of 21 members, is divided in 5 Colleges : elected representatives, company managers, trade unions, organizations of Social Economy, associated partners (consultative voice).

The creation and organization of a CBE respond to a common will of local socio-economic actors. This expression of local democracy assure the efficiency and pertinence of the actions conducted.
