  • The realization of a photo exhibition entitled “Voyage en Afrique, au cœur des relations Hommes-Nature”, with the support of Loterie Romande. This exhibition, which highlighted the experience acquired during the implementation of projects in the field, was inaugurated in February 2015 and exhibited in various locations in Geneva: Haute Ecole du Paysage, d’ingénierie et d’architecture (Hepia), festival Alternatiba or the Nyamuk travel café.

Various workshops were held in Geneva and Lausanne in 2015 and 2016, and the products produced by volunteers were sold to members and supporters, as well as at the Pôle Sud Solidaire Christmas Market in Lausanne in 2016.
  • Participation in the “Courir pour Aider” solidarity races in 2006, as well as two editions of the “Race for Gift” in 2015 and 2016.
