Exploration Mille Lieux: impact of third places on regions
Face à la popularité grandissante des tiers-lieux, l’exploration Mille Lieux a pour ambition de comprendre leurs impacts sur les territoires et témoigner ce qu’il se joue au sein et autour d’eux. Afin d’objectiver l’impact des tiers-lieux sur les territoires, cette étude a comme champs d’exploration quatre sujets au cœur des enjeux de notre société : la transformation des territoires, l’évolution du rapport au travail, la création de communs et la transition écologique.

Faced with the growing popularity of third places, Exploration Mille Lieux (Thousand Places) aims to understand their impacts on regions and show what is happening within and around them. To objectify the impact of third places on regions, this study takes as its field of exploration four subjects at the heart of the challenges facing our society: regional transformation, the evolving relationship to work, creation of communal areas and the ecological transition.
 
The method used was to explore eight areas, with a two-day residence per field and a qualitative approach based on semi-directive interviews with the various stakeholders in the place and its region. We focused our attention on five medium-sized cities (in line with the Sharitories exploration), adding a metropolis (Metz) and two regions in Europe (Belgium and Spain).
We selected a set of places that offer a hybridisation of at least three uses, backed by a desire among the stakeholders involved to produce common areas. Our list features spaces that mix co-working, fablab, upcycling etc, as well as a media library or hair salon. This panel, while not exhaustive, is intended to be representative of the incredible diversity of these places.
Reinforcing adoption of behaviour to develop a sustainable food supply

With the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France Urbaine, in partnership with RESOLIS, decided to carry out a study entitled "Cities facing the challenges of food insecurity". This document gathers 21 contributions from metropolises, large cities and agglomerations, which make it possible to identify, through concrete initiatives, how they act against food insecurity.
 
The factsheet “reinforcing adoption of behaviour to develop a sustainable food supply” presents the Grand Nancy Metropolis food strategy to ensure a dignified and sustainable access to quality food for all.
At the heart of the Sillon Lorrain European metropolitan centre, in a mainly rural environment for its population of 433,788 inhabitants, Grand Nancy Metropolis coordinates a wide range of initiatives relating to the food supply that affect multiple territorial issues such as economic growth, agriculture, the environment, social justice and health.
 
The objective is to rethink the metropolitan food supply strategy in order to respond to current and future societal issues. To achieve this, the Grand Nancy Metropolis is taking action for:
 
  • access to a healthy diet, particularly for disadvantaged people,
  • the maintenance of peri-urban farming, and the encouragement of new supply channels,
  • the promotion of practices that have the least possible impact on natural resources in particular the fight against food waste,
  • the development of a PAT (Projet Alimentaire Territorial -Territorial Food Project) beyond its territory

With the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France Urbaine, in partnership with RESOLIS, decided to carry out a study entitled "Cities facing the challenges of food insecurity". This document gathers 21 contributions from metropolises, large cities and agglomerations, which make it possible to identify, through concrete initiatives, how they act against food insecurity.
 
The factsheet “a coordinated food distribution network” presents the solidarity food strategy of the City of Reims.
Prior to 2011, 3,000 people were receiving food aid from a multitude of charity organizations in the Reims territory. Given this situation and in order to provide appropriate assistance to households, which went beyond food aid, it proved necessary to create a project to bring together local organizations and to refer vulnerable and disadvantaged families to social workers.
 
In this regard, the community grocery store has been a useful tool for encouraging a joint approach.
The assisted populations are either exposed to the risk of social exclusion due to the insecurity of their situation in relation to employment, income, housing or health, or are already being neglected or marginalized. It is therefore essential, beyond the provision of ad hoc aid, to encourage the restoration of social cohesion around a project, using a structuring tool which favours educational aspects and support.
 
At the same time and in general, the distribution of aid in the form of packages implies a total absence of choice of products received, and a certain loss of dignity for the people concerned. Conversely, the community grocery allows a choice from the products available with a modest financial participation.
Recommendations for a creative city and a smart planning
Ce document présente les grandes recommandations élaborées par les membres du Partenariat Français pour la Ville et les Territoires (PFVT), plateforme d’échanges et de valorisation de l’expertise des acteurs français de l’urbain à l’international. Ces documents sont préparés à l’occasion du Forum Urbain Mondial d’Abu Dhabi de février 2020 et du Sommet Afrique-France de juin 2020.

This document outlines key recommendations formulated by the members of the French Alliance for Cities and Territorial Development (PFVT), the platform for exchange and promotion of French expertise in urban development at the international level. These documents were prepared in the context of the World Urban Forum taking place in Abu Dhabi on February 2020 and the Africa-France Summit on June 2020.
 
Focusing on the integration of the creative dimension in the city, the "Creative City and Smart Planning" working group considers the creative city as an inspiring city and a city of opportunities, shaped by its inhabitants and evolving over time.
 
The creative city must therefore be seen as the vector of a shared capital around which all the actors of a territory come together, participating in the creation of a common vision of the city, the urban project, and planning.
 
Planning the city in order to make it creative, smart and sustainable - therefore implies ensuring a balance between the projected planning model ; territorial characteristics and local governance ; designing public spaces and uses as places of creativity and inclusion -  or to enhance culture and heritage in order to turn them into opportunities for economic development, while avoiding tourism at risk for sites and the exclusion of local populations.

Focused on the inclusion and enhancement of the citizen as a key player in urban planning, the booklet of the working group “Citizenship and social innovation” re-examines the governance model of our cities. Faced to increasing inequalities and socio-spatial segregation, it is urgent to redefine citizen participation, by promoting participatory mechanisms, by giving women a place in the city, or by encouraging the presence of marginalized actors within public decision-making bodies.
 

To that end, the cities of tomorrow still have to take up many challenges, in order to prioritize citizen initiatives in their governance, and turn them into drivers of their development, which is currently intended to be more inclusive and more sustainable.

Territorial heritage in the pipeline
Points FNAU est une collection d’ouvrages sur l’urbanisme pensés par les agences d’urbanisme pour inventer, entre pistes de réflexion et exemples concrets, la ville de demain. Ces ouvrages sont à vocation de pédagogie et d’éclairage sur des grands sujets liés à l'aménagement du territoire.
 
Ce cinquième numéro aborde la question de la prise en compte du patrimoine dans une société urbaine, mobile et mondiale.

Le patrimoine est aujourd'hui partout, au fondement même de l'identité des territoires. Aménager l'espace en préservant le "déjà-là" est une préoccupation croissante des...
FNAU Points is a collection of works on urban planning designed by urban planning agencies to invent, through a mix of thought-provoking lines and concrete examples, the city of tomorrow. These works are intended for education and clarification on major subjects related to planning the region.
 
This fifth issue addresses the issue of heritage consideration in an urban, mobile and global society.

Heritage is today everywhere, at the very foundation of regional identities. Developing the space while preserving the "already there" is a growing concern of citizens, relayed by their elected officials.
 
As a result, the notion of heritage has expanded over the past fifty years, from the exceptional object to the landscape incorporating natural and built spaces on vast scales.

The development and transmission of this regional heritage is the work of a long-term project, led by elected officials, residents, technicians and associations. And to support their efforts, special partners in the shape of urban planning agencies intervene with a single objective: to project around regional heritage in a relationship that’s calmed and adapted to the lifestyles of today.
 
Exploring the evolution of the concept of heritage since its origins, this publication, provided with a chronology, presents the current issues of regional heritage and explains the contribution of urban planning agencies through a wide selection of concrete cases and projects in France and abroad.
 
Living differently: UTOP, an example of a co-operative of inhabitants
Faced with the challenges of changing lifestyles, changing family structures, an ageing population, the dissociation between work and the workplace, housing is being renewed and innovations are multiplying. In France, as with our European neighbours, alternatives are emerging. They reveal a growing involvement of inhabitants in designing and managing their living spaces, and a renewal of the professional stances of housing stakeholders. The Paris Region Institute explores this phenomenon in a series of articles and interviews on alternative housing experiences in France and Europe. Here is a focus on UTOP, the first co-operative of...
Faced with the challenges of changing lifestyles, changing family structures, an ageing population, the dissociation between work and the workplace, housing is being renewed and innovations are multiplying. In France, as with our European neighbours, alternatives are emerging. They reveal a growing involvement of inhabitants in designing and managing their living spaces, and a renewal of the professional stances of housing stakeholders.
 
The Paris Region Institute explores this phenomenon in a series of articles and interviews on alternative housing experiences in France and Europe. Here is a focus on UTOP, the first co-operative of inhabitants arising from the ALUR law, created in 2016 as part of the call for "participatory housing" projects in the city of Paris. The future inhabitants-cooperators have designed in partnership with the HLM CoopImmo cooperative and the ArchiEthic architectural cooperative the project for an ecological and open building on Rue Garnier-Guy in the 20th arrondissement.
Cities change the world
Selon les Nations unies, près des deux-tiers de la population mondiale habiteront en zone urbaine d’ici 2045. Aujourd’hui estimés à 4,2 milliards, les citadins devraient être 5 milliards en 2030 et 6,7 milliards en 2050.

Au cœur des flux financiers et migratoires mondiaux, les métropoles façonnent les valeurs sociétales et les modes de vie planétaires. Elles sont les vitrines des mutations du monde, créatrices de richesses économiques et d’innovations technologiques.

Depuis le début du III ème millénaire, leurs centres se régénèrent et se densifient, tandis que les périphéries s’...
According to the United Nations, nearly two-thirds of the world's population will live in urban areas by 2045. Today estimated at 4.2 billion, urban dwellers are expected to number 5 billion in 2030 and 6.7 billion in 2050.

At the heart of global financial and migration flows, metropolises are shaping societal values and global ways of life. They are windows onto the changing world, creating economic wealth and technological innovations.

Since the beginning of the third millennium, their centres have been regenerating and becoming more dense, while their peripheries spread out. But their long-term development model is in question. Victims of their own successes, will metropolises eventually become unlivable? What will be the social and environmental sustainability of these urban complexes? How can we articulate attractiveness and quality of life for all?

From New York to Paris Ile-de-France, Tokyo to Copenhagen, Singapore to Medellin, metropolises are inventing, at all scales, new development paths to combine economic competitiveness, urban regeneration, social inclusion, energy frugality and climate resilience. And in doing so, they are changing the world.

This issue of Papers highlights particularly inspiring strategies and initiatives to address the fundamental challenges of (Very) Greater Paris.
development of Tunisia's cultural heritage
Le projet Patrimoine Tunisie s’inscrit dans le cadre du programme Tounes Wijhetouna (« Tunisie : notre destination ») d’appui à la diversification du tourisme en Tunisie.
 
Consacré à la valorisation de sites patrimoniaux, le projet se divise en deux composantes principales :

1. Appui à l'appropriation, la préservation et la valorisation des patrimoines bâtis tunisiens,
2. Appui à la modernisation du Musée de Carthage et à la valorisation de son environnement.

The Tunisia Heritage project is part of the Tounes Wijhetouna ("Tunisia: Our Destination") programme to support the diversification of tourism in Tunisia.
 
Dedicated to the promotion of heritage sites, the project is divided into two main components:

1. Support for the appropriation, preservation and promotion of Tunisia's built heritage,
2. Support for the modernisation of Carthage Museum and the improvement of its environment.

In a cross-cutting way, this project seeks to implement capacity-building actions and knowledge transfer, particularly in the area of heritage management.
 
Among the expected results:

• At least 15 remarkable buildings will be rehabilitated, converted or restored, especially in the ancient centres.
Project leaders selected to occupy rehabilitated buildings will be supported in the implementation of durable, sustainable activities.
• Stakeholders contributing to the inventory, rehabilitation and conservation of heritage (in local communities in particular) will benefit from training and capacity-building actions.
• Carthage Museum and its immediate surroundings (including Place de l’Unesco) will be renovated.
• An interpretation centre will be created to promote the riches of the Carthage site to the public.
