Pursuing a comprehensive sustainable development policy

The sustainable development goals adopted by the 193 UN countries in 2015 focus on access for all to quality education, health and employment. Thus, sustainable development concerns not only environmental issues but also societal issues. Sustainable development, which has been part of the establishment's purpose since 2012, remained at the heart of the concerns of elected officials when the board of management was set up. The CSJC as a Joint Union has taken into account environmental and societal issues in a cross-disciplinary way and within each of the activities carried out. These small actions are intended to develop within an ambitious project the establishment has in this area, and thus become a real axis of development.
Pursuing a comprehensive sustainable development policy

Operational objective N° 1

Promote balanced management of resources in the region through the development of outdoor sports.

3.1.1 / Promote the practice of outdoor sports.
3.1.2 / Develop partnerships related to sustainable development and nature.

Focus on
The mission to support performance

Special vigilance and support will be provided to these athletes, to support them in their triple project. The Parcours d'Excellence Sportive (PES) service will maintain direct and regular contact with the coordinators of clusters, educational establishments and parents.


The objective would be to monitor approximately 10% of the athletes accommodated in the establishment. This enhanced support would include, according to needs, in the fields:

  • of schooling;
  • of training;
  • educational, professional and sporting guidance;
  • support in financial aspects (search for travel assistance or other).

Operational objective N° 2

Promote the rational management of resources in the establishment.

3.2.1 / Pursue and develop an ambitious waste management policy to achieve the Zeru Frazu / Zero Waste objective. / Promote responsible consumption, promote healthier food and fight against waste.
3.2.3 / Promote the optimal use of energy resources.

Focus on
The CSJC, a sanctuary and a valued land reserve for education, production and biodiversity

The values and methods that run through all the establishment's actions are based on the conviction that we must consider humans, like nature, as living elements that are interdependent on the system in which they evolve. Thus, any educational action guided by a sustainable vision of the complex society in which we live contributes to a better future. The attention paid to the natural environment, to food (in particular to the quality of the products consumed) and consequently to the health of young people is fundamental in this context.


The CSJC also has a large land reserve located in an urban environment marked by a strong dynamic of soil artificialisation. Making this area into a sanctuary, enhancing it and optimising the consumption of built space necessary for our public service mission makes sense, as the CSJC has a substantial amount of land that is largely unusable for building because it is classified as a floodplain area, it seemed appropriate to consider cultivating these spaces. Several partners (residential shelter, permanent environmental education centre, associations) have shown interest in the initial work. The project plans to create several educational gardens, adapted to the different audiences (beneficiaries of the partner associations, CSJC interns, schoolchildren, young farmers), which would make it possible to carry out educational projects, experiments on permaculture in cooperation with the Corsican permaculture network, and produce food of high nutritional value

Operational objective N° 3

Promote the inclusion of the most vulnerable groups.

3.3.1 / Promote sports and leisure activities accessible to people with disabilities. Contribute to the inclusion of people with disabilities.

Focus on
"Spartumu!" days

In 2013, following the organisation of the first "it works for everyone" event dedicated to the accessibility of sports and leisure activities for people with disabilities, the first monthly "sport for all" outings were organised by the CSJC, in partnership with the Association des Paralysés de France.
These regular actions are a long-term commitment of the establishment since the partnership with the Zallella association for the organisation of a symposium on the subject in 2010 and the organisation of the adapted regatta "Voile en tête" (200 participants in 2012).


They offer establishments and associations outdoor sports that can be practised by families, regardless of any disability. The Cimgo are "karts" driven by a qualified person at the back of the vehicle, the off-road chairs can be used independently, and the Joëlette is operated by hand carriers, and non-disabled people can accompany on bikes or scooters. In this way, all participants can discover, together, the hiking trails recognised and tested by the CSJC teams and the communities concerned.
