SDG 3 Good health & well-being

Free time & urban dynamics
Le temps libre est aujourd’hui, dans les pays occidentaux, le principal temps de vie, en constante augmentation. Comment le définir ? Quelles sont les nouvelles pratiques ? Quels lieux y consacrer ? En quoi constitue-t-il un levier de développement territorial ?
 
Bouygues Construction a souhaité mener une réflexion collaborative sur ce thème, avec l’objectif de mettre en résonance la question du temps libre avec le territoire de la ville.
 
Pour cela, la parole a été donnée à une dizaine d’experts qui observent et analysent les pratiques, qui se frottent à ces réalités au...
Leisure time is nowadays, in Western countries, the main time of life, and it is constantly increasing. How to define it? What are the new practices? What places to devote to it? In what way does it constitute a lever for regional development?
 
Bouygues Construction wished to conduct a collaborative discussion on this theme, with the aim of bringing the issue of free time into line with the city's region.
 
To do this, the floor was given to a dozen experts who observe and analyse practices, who deal with these realities on a daily basis and feel their nuances: sociologists, town planners, architects, doctors, cultural or leisure operators, media representatives.
 
To guide this work, the group was placed under the patronage of Jean Viard, CNRS Research Director at the CEVIPOF, the political research centre of Sciences Po.

With 7000 jobs and 900 companies generating €1.3 billion in turnover in the electronics and digital sector, Angers Loire Métropole (ALM) was awarded the French Tech label in 2015.
 
To enrich the daily life of citizens and make it simpler, smarter and more harmonious, ALM continues its transformation towards an intelligent region. To become the French model in this area, Angers Loire Métropole has chosen the consortium led by ENGIE Solutions, the Group's leading brand in the zero-carbon transition associated with SUEZ, La Poste and the VYV Group.
 
The aim is to use digital technology to accelerate the ecological transition of the region and improve its attractiveness, optimise the organisation of public services and ensure more efficient management of resources, and finally, to facilitate and improve inhabitants’ daily lives.
 
The complementarity of expertise within the consortium led by ENGIE, the installation of sensors and renovations should lead to 66% energy savings on public lighting by 2025, a 20% reduction in the energy consumption of the city's buildings, smoother, easier traffic flows and a 30% reduction in water consumption for public watering.
 
SUEZ will enhance existing tools (sensors, communicating water meters, etc) to optimise the performance of water and wastewater, waste and sanitation services and green spaces. At stake: real-time control of water quality, reduction of fly tipping or optimisation of waste collection rounds.
Managing the food supply during the pandemic: initiatives in French cities
La crise sanitaire a durement touché le monde entier, notamment la France, et a conduit à adapter les modes de consommation, de production et d’approvisionnement pour faire face à cette situation inédite. Fermeture des marchés, des commerces, des restaurants et des cantines, pénurie de main d’œuvre dans la production agricole… Les acteurs du secteur ont dû s’adapter à un contexte évolutif pour garantir la sécurité alimentaire du pays.
 
Malgré toutes ces difficultés, le système alimentaire français a tenu. 
Comment garantir la sécurité et la qualité de l’approvisionnement alimentaire...
 
Management of the food sector has been a crucial issue during Covid-19 crisis. A basic need for everybody, obtaining food is an essential activity that can-not be interrupted or endangered. But how can the safety and quality of the food supply be guaranteed for everyone during a health crisis? What mechanisms have been put in place in French cities in response to this unprecedented emergency? What lessons can be learned from the pandemic? Should we expect more long-term changes in the way that we produce, consume and recycle? To what extent can local French initiatives be useful in terms of a transition of the food system on a more global scale?
 
France Urbaine, in partnership with the RESOLIS and Terres en Villes associations, presents an analysis in this publication of the multiple roles played by cities during these first weeks of lockdown.
Grand Ouarzazate, an oasis town for the 21st century
Le Grand Ouarzazate, situé sur le versant sud du Haut-Atlas et à la porte du désert et de l’Afrique subsaharienne, est riche d’une culture millénaire et de sites exceptionnels. L’activité de ce territoire a été positionnée dans les dernières décennies sur son potentiel touristique et sur l’accueil de l’industrie cinématographique. Le complexe solaire «Noor Ouarzazate», ouvre un volet nouveau de son attractivité.
 
Les équipes internationales réunies par les Ateliers de Cergy ont été appelées en 2018 à effectuer un travail collectif sur un cap formulé pour le Grand Ouarzazate par le Gouverneur de la Province...
Grand Ouarzazate, located on the southern slope of the High Atlas at the gateway to the desert and sub-Saharan Africa, is rich in its thousand-year-old culture and exceptional sites. The activity of this region has been positioned in recent decades on its tourist potential and hosting the cinematographic industry. The "Noor Ouarzazate" solar complex opens up a new aspect of its attractiveness.
 
The international teams brought together by the Ateliers de Cergy were called upon in 2018 to work collectively on a course formulated for the Grand Ouarzazate by the Governor of the Province and the Presidents of the communes:
 
- To make it, based around agriculture and water, the foundations of the oasis, an attractive region of world level based on several aspects; cinema, the thermo-solar industry and tourism.
- To make it a model ecological town, a showcase for oasis locations.
 
The spatialised proposals resulting from this work focused on the following themes:
 
- To improve the quality of urban life by creating tree-lined public spaces, new housing models, adapted to the climate and current lifestyles, and to strengthen social life in participatory places in the different neighbourhoods.
- To rebalance the banks of the central wadi by reorganising mobility and reconsidering the programme for a vast "urban pole" to adapt it to current economic realities and to accommodate new facilities, particularly universities.
- To improve water efficiency by ensuring the sharing of water between domestic, agricultural and industrial needs and move towards food self-sufficiency by extending the green belt and reinvestment of the major bed of the Wadi.
- To restore the earth's dignity as a building material: as the basic material of vernacular architecture, it is - despite its insulating properties - being abandoned in favour of cinder block. Proposals have been made to restore the esteem for this ecological material and reactivate the industry and know-how through contemporary architecture, in line with current lifestyles.

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.

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 fight against food insecurity is an objective shared between the public and private sectors ” presents the social policy linked to the food strategy of the Nice Côte d´Azur Metropolis.
 
Social policy in the municipal region is implemented in particular through the Direction Générale Adjointe des Solidarités (“Deputy General Directorate for Solidarity"), which brings together the Nice Centre Communal d’Action Sociale (Municipal Social Action Centre) and other missions that provide services for the most vulnerable, and also mobilises other departments through transversal actions. The Municipal Social Action Centre (CCAS), the spearhead for this policy, has close links with the field and is in constant contact with community associations in order to undertake appropriate concrete responses to the needs of the fight against various forms of exclusion.
 
In Nice, the distribution of meals to vulnerable persons is carried out by 14 aid and relief associations, organized in a network (Inter Secours Nice Alimentation) and in association with the Alpes-Maritimes Food Bank. At the beginning of 2019, actions were revised with improvements and better support. Moreover, a food distribution charter including the City of Nice, the Municipal Social Action Centre and the associations involved in the Inter Secours Nice network was signed.

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 sustainable food supply for all” looks at Dijon Métropole' strategy to ensure access to quality and sustainable food for all citizens and to promote food solidarity on its territory.
Dijon Metropolis is the capital of the newly created Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Located on strategic rail and motorway routes, Dijon boasts double recognition from UNESCO, for the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne (Climates of Burgundy’s Vineyards) and also for the repas gastronomique des Français (Gastronomic Meal of France). The city’s International Gastronomy and Wine Centre is currently under construction.
 
Dijon Metropolis has placed its sustainable food supply strategy at the heart of its ecological transition. Beyond issues related to the reduction of GHG emissions, the protection of biodiversity, the reduction of the consumption of natural resources (water, energy, arable soil, etc.), the public authorities’ elected representatives have decided to ensure that ALL consumer-citizens-are involved in the transition process. About 50 private and public organizations brought together by the public authority proposed 24 actions with a budget of €46 m to rise to the challenge of offering 400,000 inhabitants a better food supply.
 
This strategy includes vulnerable populations through the expertise and actions carried out for many years by the City of Dijon CCAS (Municipal Social Action Centre). Dijon’s social action represents a budget of €9.3 m (CCAS) to provide aid for disadvantaged populations (15% of the population).
