APALA (Aux Petits Acteurs L’Avenir) is a non-profit environmentalist association created in 2013 in Nantes, which brings technical solutions to the sustainability issues of our lifestyles through a scientific approach and a low-tech approach.
Known at Centrale Nantes for having contributed to the setting up of the low-tech engineering project-based specialisation, it also works alongside numerous student groups in the framework of P2E or specialisation projects.
As part of a culture of innovation under constraint, the association considers technology in terms of its environmental, social and economic aspects. Defining itself as an intermediary in the transition to a sustainable world, APALA popularises and raises awareness to disseminate scientific knowledge.
