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 “The promotion of short agricultural supply chains for better food solidarity” presents the food strategy of Saint-Etienne Metropolis.
 
Agriculture is an important feature of the Saint-Etienne Metropolis, occupying 38% of the territory’s area (75% including forest) and providing a living for more than 1,000 farms, of which 600 are larger than 10 hectares. 38% of farms in the Metropolis sell their produce in short supply chains (19% within the Loire département). This agricultural production offers a wide range of local farm produce. Processing of farm products is relatively substantial and varied (cheese, yogurt, meat, charcuterie (cooked pork products), fruit, vegetables, honey, etc.); dairy processing is the most widespread.
 
The Saint-Etienne Metropolis conducts an agricultural policy characterized by the development of local supply chains and environmentally friendly farming, and the preservation of agricultural land. It has implemented several food solidarity initiatives, including:
 
•    ensuring that farmers in the territory are able to earn a fair income
•    promoting healthy, sustainable eating habits by raising children's awareness and using good quality local products in the preparation of school meals.
 
This work is supplemented by the approach proposed in the PEEDD (plan d’éducation à l’écocitoyenneté et au développement durable, or the Eco-citizen and Sustainable Development Educational Plan) which aims to raise children’s awareness of these two cross-cutting themes. In this framework, intervention modules are offered to primary schools on the subjects of "Eat Locally!" and the fight against food waste.

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 healthy, sustainable local food supply for all” presents the food strategy of Rouen Normandy Metropolis.
Lying an hour and a half from Paris and recognised for the wealth of its cultural and natural heritage, Rouen Normandy Metropolis has opted for a balanced development approach underpinned by the protection of resources. It has lever-aged its strengths as a dynamic urban, economic and tourist region. In this context, agriculture, which occupies nearly one third of the territory, represents a kingpin for the development and attractiveness of the metropolis.
 
For several years, the Rouen Normandy Metropolis has implemented a proactive policy to promote the development of local short food supply chains and efficient agriculture that respects natural resources. Firmly convinced of the need to take into account the food component within its agricultural policy, the Metropolis undertook the development of a PAT at the end of 2017, that it co-manages with partners in its Charte Agricole de Territoire (Territorial Agricultural Charter).
 
The challenge that the Metropolis has set itself through the development of its PAT, is to successfully mobilize all those involved in a collective project built on a set of shared, engaging values.
Teaching new mobility: "Mobility is learned!"

VEDECOM is an Institute for Energy Transition set up by the French government as part of the Future Investment Programmes, which works mainly on the development and experimentation of technological solutions applied to vehicle electrification, driving delegation and vehicle connectivity, and shared mobility and energy.
 
VEDECOM also has a training mission and a comprehensive approach to disseminating knowledge and research carried out within it.

To this end, VEDECOM has developed a catalogue of training courses for experts in industry, communities, as well as a series of fun educational devices designed to better understand the technologies and uses of the mobility solutions of tomorrow, because "mobility is learned".

The Institute for the City in Motion-VEDECOM complements this arrangement with the following actions:
  • About the autonomous vehicle:
- A knowledge-testing quiz on the autonomous vehicle https://formationvedecom.typeform.com/to/H5e8hf
- A "Robospective" board game that helps you imagine "mobile robots" and question the interplay around the services they could offer.
- A 45-minute e-learning on the autonomous vehicle:  http://formation.vedecom.fr/login/index.php
 
  • On the psycho-social, cognitive and cultural dimensions of mobility:
- A quiz "Which traveller are you?" with 17 questions: http://www.enroute-lejeu.com/quiz/#/start
- A serious mobility learning game "On the road!" to develop the autonomous mobility of individuals, aimed in particular at people in social/professional integration or in the learning phase (school).
TechTown: making digital a vehicle for employment and local development in mid-sized cities
Le réseau de coopération TechTown a été lancé dans le cadre du programme européen URBACT III. Rassemblant 11 villes européennes de taille intermédiaire, l’objectif de TechTown a été d’explorer les moyens par lesquels les villes petites et moyennes peuvent maximiser le potentiel de création d’emplois de leur économie numérique.
 
Ce réseau de planification intégrée a eu pour objet d’examiner, de manière collaborative :

- les avantages pouvant être tirés d’initiatives nationales ou de grandes villes ;
- le rôle et la viabilité des grappes d’entreprises numériques ;...
The TechTown cooperation network was launched as part of the European URBACT III programme. Bringing together 11 mid-sized European cities, TechTown's goal has been to explore ways in which small and medium-sized cities can maximise the job creation potential of their digital economy.
 
The purpose of this integrated planning network was to collaboratively examine:

- the benefits that can be derived from national or large city initiatives;
- the role and viability of clusters of digital businesses;
- how mid-sized cities can help businesses access digital skills and innovations they need to start up, grow and compete.

The Clermont metropolis has developed, with its local ecosystem, an integrated action plan focused on the structuring and development of cultural and creative industries. Taking advantage of a regional singularity around the music and image sector, this roadmap highlights digital technology as a useful lever to attract and train new talent, create skilled jobs that cannot be relocated and develop value added to the region, particularly in terms of image and visibility.

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.
