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.
Working differently
L'Île-de-France concentre plus de 650 tiers lieux, avec une forte progression depuis 2015. Ce foisonnement est le reflet des dynamiques entrepreneuriales sur le territoire francilien et le développement du télétravail. Il s'agit d'espaces de travail partagés, souvent protéiformes, créatifs, innovants, hybrides et multifonctionnels. Ils accueillent de plus en plus d'indépendants, en privilégiant un travail nomade, à distance et collaboratif. Afin d'illustrer la diversité et la richesse de ces espaces, l'Institut Paris Région sillonne les territoires d'Île-de-France afin de venir à leur rencontre et donner la parole aux acteurs, aux...
The Ile-de-France region is home to more than 650 third places, with strong growth since 2015. This proliferation is a reflection of the entrepreneurial dynamics within the French territory and the development of teleworking. These are shared workspaces, often protean, creative, innovative, hybrid and multifunctional. They welcome more and more independents, favouring itinerant, remote and collaborative working. In order to illustrate the diversity and richness of these spaces, the Institut Paris Région (Paris Region Institute) travels the regions of Ile-de-France to meet them and give voice to the stakeholders, project leaders, managers, facilitators, users and communities that make up these places.
For urban governance
Ce document élaboré par le PFVT, plateforme d'échange des acteurs français de l'urbain œuvrant à l'international, formule les grandes orientations portées par la France dans le cadre de l’adoption de l’Agenda Urbain de Quito de 2016. Il est consacré aux enjeux de gouvernance urbaine face aux problématiques complexes auxquelles les villes sont sujettes : croissance démographique rapide qu’elle soit endogène ou exogène, étalement urbain, mutations des territoires…
 
Dans ce contexte, les autorités locales ont un rôle clé à jouer, qui les conduit à dépasser leurs prérogatives socioéconomiques. Elles...
This document, put together by the PFVT, a discussion platform for French urban stakeholders working internationally, sets out the broad guidelines that France has taken in the context of adopting the 2016 Urban Agenda in Quito. It is devoted to the issues of urban governance in the face of the complex problems to which cities are subject: rapid population growth, whether endogenous or exogenous, urban sprawl, regional changes...
 
Within this context, local authorities have a key role to play, which leads them to go beyond their socio-economic prerogatives. They must address these issues by taking into account the expectations of civil society and incorporating social, environmental and economic criteria.
 
The document provides key thinking on improving urban governance as a whole. It calls, among other things, for the integration of citizens in the processes for defining urban projects, strengthening transparency, a fairer allocation of resources and responsibilities between different levels of governance...
The regional food project of Caen Normandy Metropole
Le projet alimentaire territorial de Caen Normandie Métropole a été lancé en octobre 2017 ; pendant une année, une démarche participative impliquant tous les acteurs du territoire a permis d'élaborer des orientations stratégiques qui ont été reconnues par le label du Programme national de l'alimentation (PNA) en février 2019.
 
 Par l'organisation d'ateliers thématiques et de visites de terrain localement (ferme urbaine, marché de gros, association d'insertion par le maraîchage, agriculteur permettant la cueillette aux particuliers, cantines proposant des menus végétariens....), les acteurs du...
Caen Normandy Metropole’s regional food project was launched in October 2017. For one year, a participatory approach involving all the regional players led to the development of strategic guidelines that were recognised by the National Food Programme (NFP) label in February 2019.
 
By organising thematic workshops and field visits locally (urban farm, wholesale market, association providing work in market gardening, farmer allowing individuals to do their own picking, canteens offering vegetarian menus and so on), stakeholders in the Caen region now have a qualitative and quantitative regional food diagnostic and routemaps to promote short food circuits.
 
The challenge now lies in implementing this ambitious 14-action plan, aimed at bringing consumers and food producers closer together in six strategic areas:

I - Implementing metropolitan food governance;
II - Taking food into account in planning and land use;
III - Supporting the local economy (distribution platform, vegetable provision, urban compost etc);
IV - Strengthening collaboration and social bonding (sustainable food house);
V - Promoting local sourcing in communities;
VI - Communicating about local food identity and Normandy gastronomy, raising awareness, educating and training.

The FRUGAL (Urban Forms and Food Governance) action research programme run with the University of Caen between 2016 and 2020 is proving to be a quality methodological support to this innovative community approach to food: researchers present the results of their research to elected officials each year and the participatory methodologies of communities at all levels (city, urban community, metropolitan cluster) allow for new partnerships between researchers and stakeholders.
The Hauts de l'Orne: a naturally innovative district
Un cadre de vie privilégié à deux pas de la Vallée de l’Orne et de la voie verte, sur un site riche de 7000 ans d’histoire : le futur ÉcoQuartier de Fleury-sur-Orne est actuellement développé par Caen la mer, la commune de Fleury-sur-Orne et Normandie Aménagement. Les travaux sont programmés jusqu’en 2030.

UN QUARTIER VÉGÉTAL
Premier ÉcoQuartier labellisé (étape 2 depuis 2018) à se construire sur Caen la mer, les Hauts de l’Orne offriront à ses futurs habitants, à horizon 2030, un vaste choix de logements individuels, semi-collectifs ou collectifs. Il se situera au cœur de 25 hectares de...
A special place to live just a stone's throw from the Orne Valley and its green way on a site with 7,000 years of history: the future EcoDistrict de Fleury-sur-Orne is currently being developed by Caen la Mer, the commune of Fleury-sur-Orne and Normandie Aménagement (Normandy Development). The work is scheduled until 2030.

A GREEN NEIGHBOURHOOD
The first certified EcoDistrict (stage 2 since 2018) to be built in Caen la Mer, by 2030, the Hauts de l'Orne will offer its future inhabitants a wide choice of individual, semi-collective and collective housing. It will be located at the heart of 25 hectares of natural landscaped parks, ponds, gentle vegetated paths, and very close to shops, services and innovative sports and recreational facilities. Located a 10-minute drive from the centre of Caen, it will be served by the new rail tram from 2019 and benefit from access to a heat network.

AN IN-SITU NURSERY
To produce trees and plants locally, an innovative initiative, unique in France, was proposed by Normandie Aménagement: to set up a nursery directly in the neighbourhood. Located on the last stage of the EcoDistrict, which will not be completed for 10 years, this nursery has been home to all the plants needed for the future landscaping of the district since 2018. In the long run, more than 40,000 plant species will have been grown directly on the site.
