Operational, industrial and ecological program
Le Programme National de Synergies Inter-Entreprises rassemble des entreprises de toute taille et de tout secteur d'activité. La méthodologie utilisée permet l'identification de synergies inter-entreprises afin de mutualiser ou optimiser l'utilisation des ressource détenues par les entreprises d'un même territoire. Cette approche économique innovante permet de générer des bénéfices substantiels à la fois économiques, environnementaux et sociaux pour les entreprises et les territoires. L'objectif est aindi d'apporter un gain d'efficacité dans le déploiement territorial de l'écologie industrielle ainsi que l'appropriation du savoir-...

"Programme National de Synergies Inter-Entreprises" involves companies of all sizes operating in all business sectors. The methodology identifies inter-company synergies in order to pool or optimise the use of resources owned by companies in the same region. This economic approach generates significant economic, environmental and social benefits for companies and regions. Its aim is to bring increased efficiency gains in terms of regional deployment of industrial ecology as well as the acquisition of expertise by local stakeholders.

The Control and Command Center, a unique tool for urban supervision and operation

SUEZ, associé à Bouygues Energies & Service et Citelum, a conçu et développé le Poste de Commandement Centralisé, un outil de supervision unique qui facilite la gestion de l’espace public en regroupant et analysant toutes les données issues des services de la ville : circulation, vidéo-surveillance, éclairage public, services d’urgence et d’autres encore. Cette solution innovante est déployée sur le territoire de la Métropole de Dijon, de telle sorte à ce que cette ville de 260,000 habitants devienne la première ville intelligente et connectée de France.
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.
Economie Circulaire : un atout pour relever le défi de l'aménagement durable des territoires

The global context of increasing population and decreasing resources and raw materials requires us to reflect on the transition from a linear to a circular economy. With more and more inhabitants living in cities, the challenge of circularity is above all urban. Town and country planning must contribute to this by restricting silo-based approaches and acting in an integrated way, so that all the territory’s resources are mobilized for a single objective: to turn our territories and cities into sober and decisively circular spaces.
What if the circular economy were to become an essential asset for town and country planning?...

The global context of increasing population and decreasing resources and raw materials requires us to reflect on the transition from a linear to a circular economy. With more and more inhabitants living in cities, the challenge of circularity is above all urban. Town and country planning must contribute to this by restricting silo-based approaches and acting in an integrated way, so that all the territory’s resources are mobilized for a single objective: to turn our territories and cities into sober and decisively circular spaces.

What if the circular economy were to become an essential asset for town and country planning? Through an exploration, ADEME attempts to highlight the keys to understanding, questioning, acting and experimenting with the subject.

This white paper aims to lay the foundations for reflection and to disseminate a new approach for urban planning and development amongst project developers, local governments and socio-economic actors.

#CIVICTECH - Le dossier de veille de Cap Digital

 

 

Produced by Cap Digital at the end of 2016, this prospective report highlights a whole series of questions, concerning the disinterest of the citizens for the public thing, their mistrust toward those who embody it, resulting in low voter turnout and polarization towards extremes. In this context, technologies and new applications encompassed by the generic term "civictechs" occupy a special place: some elected officials see it as a lever to renew their political communication during this election campaign, while the most committed citizens expect support for new channels of communication with their representatives and administrations.

The sustainable city by France

This page offers the French vision of the sustainable city and strives to define its main attributes: inclusive, dense, resilient etc. Through its objectives and definitions, it is at the heart of the French Network for the Sustainable City’s work. This association supports French sustainable city actors by bringing together synergies for the collective conception of a more integrated, energy-efficient, resource-efficient and cost-effective model of urban design, planning and development.

This page introduces the French vision of sustainable city and strives to define its main dimension : inclusive, dense, resilient…Through its objectives and definitions, it is the blueprint of Institut de la Ville Durable. This association accompanies French sustainable city stakeholders by developing synergies in order to build a collective conception, planning and urban development model that would be more integrated, sober in energy and resources and less costly.

6 propositions pour la ville durable

Based on the experience of its members, the French Network for Sustainable City (IVD) has come up with 6 proposals to accelerate the deployment of sustainable cities in all contexts, notably by improving city governance and innovation support.

Public procurement legal tools for innovative urban projects

This report has been released by the law firm LexCity within the context of the work group steered by the French Network for the Sustainable City on “the new legal tools for innovative urban projects”. Its purpose is to analyse, identify and clarify the benefits and the best practices of public procurement legal tools for urban innovation. These tools are also meant for cooperation between public and private stakeholders.

Participation citoyenne (La)

Impliquer les habitants dans l'aménagement urbain, faire de la concertation était encore considéré en France il y a quelques années comme un plus qu'on pouvait éventuellement apporter au projet si on en avait le temps ou les moyens. Aujourd'hui, il devient évident que l'urbanisme collaboratif, associant une multiplicité d'acteurs dont les habitants, constitue une véritable méthode de projet qui contribue significativement à accélérer et à conforter les processus de décision, à viabiliser dans la durée, des espaces d'activités et des lieux de vie, à inventer des réponses inédites face à des problèmes complexes, à rendre attractives...

A few years ago in France, facilitating dialogue with inhabitants on urban planning was still seen as a potential added value to projects, if one had the time or means to do so. Today, it is becoming clear that collaborative urban planning, uniting a number of stakeholders, including inhabitants, is an effective project method. As such, it significantly contributes to accelerating and consolidating decision making processes, making social and living spaces viable over time, inventing new solutions to complex problems, making disengaging projects look more appealing, meeting the expectations of a territory’s inhabitants and economic stakeholders better, promoting a shared eco-citizenship and, more broadly, renewing the exercise of democracy.

Citizen participation should no longer be seen as a constraint, but as a practical and exciting way to making the city of tomorrow better.

This methodological handbook, which complements the AEU2 strategy designed by the ADEME, is intended for mayors, project leaders in local governments, companies, inhabitants and neighbouring residents. It recalls the basics of citizen participation, and most importantly, all the benefits, both in terms of management and implementation, that the project can ensue from it.
