Card no. 01 from the guide “Demain mon territoire” (Tomorrow my Region), co-published by ADEME and the EcoMaires, is intended for elected officials to help them integrate the environment into their programme thanks to twenty information sheets providing ideas for action and examples of implemented solutions.
 
Mulhouse City, convinced that ecological transition requires the mobilisation of as many people as possible, gives voice to its inhabitants with the creation of the platform “Mulhouse c’est vous” (Mulhouse is you). This website from the Agency for Citizen Participation allows the people of Mulhouse to vote, comment and object to projects proposed by the city. Inhabitants can propose solidary actions thanks to a suggestion box.
 
By being put to the vote, these solidary initiatives can then be examined by the municipal council only if they get the support of 250 members. A 300 000 euro participative budget is allocated by the city to finance projects which are thought up and voted on by its residents. Finally, a place called “Le Carré des Associations” with tailor-made services is made available to citizens to support them in the promotion and development of associative activities.                     
                  
By mobilising its inhabitants, Mulhouse is transforming each of them into stakeholders in the ecological and solidary transition.
