Following the Paris Urban Campus on Smart Planning for the Sustainable City held on January 20 and 21, 2016 at UNESCO, the National Federation of Urban Planning Agencies published the campus’ proceedings. This publication recounts the rich debates and proposals resulting from the over the two-day exchange.

Les 9 classes de l’école maternelle des Boutours ont été réalisées par le recyclage et l’extension d’une ancienne halle de marché. L’ensemble du processus de construction a été pensé pour être écologique, participatif, citoyen et pédagogique. Les matériaux sont biosourcés (briques de terre crue) et le bâtiment émet très peu de carbone, à la fois par ses matériaux et son mode de chauffage. Les écoliers et citoyens ont été mobilisés durant la phase de construction du bâtiment.
Boutours kindergarten’s 9 classes rooms were built by recycling and expanding a former market hall. The entire construction process has been designed to be ecological, participatory, civic and educational. The materials are bio-sourced (mud bricks) and the building emits very little carbon, throught both its materials used and its heating system.
The kindergarten’s pupils and citizens were enlisted during the construction phase of the building.
Participatory budgets allow citizens to suggest ideas and make decisions by voting on projects that they would like adopted for the future of their city or to improve their quality of life and everyday experience. Voting is open to all residents everywhere regardless of nationality and a majority is not required. The concept of participatory budgets is rapidly expanding in France. Paris, Grenoble, Rennes and Montreuil are just some of the local authorities that have chosen to ask their citizens to vote on part of their budget in order to strengthen citizen participation and modernise public policy.

SUEZ has pioneered the Command and Control Center, an innovative urban supervision tool that facilitates an enhanced management of the public space by consolidating and analyzing the data generated by a city’s operations: traffic regulation, video-surveillance, street lighting, emergency services, and more. This trailblazing solution is being piloted in the Dijon metropolitan area, and will transform this city with a population of 260,000 into the first smart and connected city of its kind in France.
The application - available on Android and IOS - offers a digital information service to a broad audience. Implemented in January 2014, it covers the entire metropolian Lyon area and targets local residents.

SUEZ group, in partnership with the Saint-Etienne municipality, was awarded the “Sustainable and United City” Call for Expression of Interest by the National Agency for Urban Renovation (ANRU) within the framework of the Future Investments Program (PIA). SUEZ is developing a next-generation interoperable, open and scalable digital platform that will facilitate citizens’ access to public data while providing the city with quality information. The “Digital Saint-Etienne” system meets the needs of citizens, elected officials, professionals and the municipality in terms of galvanizing the social and economic fabric of the community. The platform has been rolled out in the Tarentaize-Beaubrun-Couriot neighborhood and its appeal to students and citizens was tested during a hackathon in March 2018; it will be installed and in operation by the end of 2018.

À partir de l’analyse des 39 opérations labellisées ÉcoQuartiers en 2013, 2014 et 2015, présentes dans la plupart des grandes régions françaises, l'ouvrage "EcoQuartiers, quels enseignements ?" du Cerema vise à dépasser les idées préconçues et à faire évoluer les représentations collectives. Qu’y a-t-il de réellement nouveau dans ces projets ? Quelle différence y a-t-il entre une opération d’aménagement des années 70-80 et les projets urbains dit « durables » d’aujourd’hui ? Cet ouvrage démontre qu’un EcoQuartier n’est pas un objet stéréotypé, mais avant tout une démarche qui permet un ensemble de réalisations adaptées à...
Based on the analysis of the 39 operations which received the french EcoQuartiers Label in 2013, 2014 and 2015, located in most of the major French regions, the Cerema's book "EcoQuartiers, what lessons?" aims at overcoming preconceived ideas and changing collective representations. What is really new in those projects ? What is the difference between a dwelling project 1970s or 1980s and the so-called "sustainable" urban projects of today ? This book shows that an EcoQuartier is not a stereotyped object, but above all an approach that allows a set of achievements adapted to each context.
