30 regions involved in the EcoCité approach receive support from the Avenir Ville de Demain investment programme managed by the Banque des Territoires on behalf of the State.
 
€5 M were invested in this programme for a multimodal logistics hotel in Paris.
 
Designed to optimise the arrival of goods at the gates of Paris and their redistribution in the capital, the logistics hotel consists of an urban rail terminal. Goods arrive by train and are then unloaded and delivered in Paris by low-polluting vehicles.
 
The twice-daily link from upstream platforms should help avoid the movement of 80 000 heavy goods vehicles per year on the Ile-de-France road network.
 
The 45 000 m2 intramuros site also devotes 12 000 m2 to tertiary areas and hosts a business incubator dedicated to sustainable logistics and mobility, higher education institutions and training centres. 10 000 m² of roof space are also devoted to urban agriculture.
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.

La Toile Alimentaire (food web), a management tool of the Regional Food Project of the Urban Community Le Havre Seine Métropole
Les ambitions du Projet Alimentaire Territorial de la Communauté urbaine Le Havre Seine Métropole sont de favoriser l’accès à une alimentation de qualité, au bénéfice de la santé de tous les habitants, et de développer une économie alimentaire de proximité.
 
Ce projet a pour objectif d’apporter un service de conseil et d’accompagnement territorial, de donner de la visibilité aux initiatives locales et de faire émerger les opportunités économiques de la chaine alimentaire de la collectivité.
 
C’est dans le cadre de ce dernier objectif que l’AURH a développé l’outil Toile Alimentaire...
The ambitions of the Le Havre Seine Métropole Urban Community's Regional Food Project are to promote access to quality food, for the benefit of the health of all inhabitants, and to develop a local food economy.
 
The aim of this project is to provide advice and regional support, to give visibility to local initiatives and to bring out economic opportunities in the community's food chain.
 
It is within the framework of this last objective that the AURH has developed the Food Web tool, which offers a dynamic and regionalised vision of the food system of the Le Havre Seine Métropole Urban Community.
 
This knowledge, analysis and decision support tool has the following function:
 
  • to understand the chain of food stakeholders and the food flows between them,
  • to respond to problems or courses of action in order to identify new players, synergies and new pooling opportunities to help structure short circuits, understand the organisation of sectors, etc.
  • to identify courses of action and support the community in their implementation
Local production as a lever to combat food insecurity

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 "local production as a lever to fight food insecurity" enhances the experience of the PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of the metropolis Aix-Marseille Provence.
The Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis is unique. The largest metropolitan area in France, twice the size of that of London, it incorporates agricultural, urban and industrial spaces within the same territory. An attractive region and a magnet for tourists, it is a leading export gateway thanks to its port, which is the largest in France. A young Metropolis, it is conscious of the need to protect its natural areas from fast-growing urbanisation.
Its natural and renewable resources (sun, sea, wind, arable land, water, terroir) represent major assets and the engineer-ing sector is present to optimize their use.
 

With the core strategic aim of promoting sustainable food production, the Metropolis signed a PAT (Projet Alimentaire Territorial - or local food project, a French initiative to reinforce local agriculture) The PAT identifies good practices implemented across the region with the primary goal of facilitating their dissemination

CITYLAB Project: urban logistics experiments
CITYLAB est un projet européen qui s’est déroulé de 2015 à 2018 dans le cadre du programme Horizon 2020 de la Commission européenne.
 
 Le projet était mené par TOI, l’institut d’économie des transports norvégien. CITYLAB est basé sur la notion de "living lab", ou laboratoire vivant, que l’on peut définir comme une instance de concertation, conception et réalisation qui accompagne un projet.
 
 Sept "Living Laboratories" ont été identifiés à Oslo, Paris, Rome, Londres, Bruxelles, Amsterdam et Southampton. La Ville de Paris était également associée au projet et y...
CITYLAB is a European project that took place from 2015 to 2018 as part of the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme.
 
The project was led by TOI, the Norwegian Institute for Transportation Economics. CITYLAB is based on the "living lab" concept, which can be defined as a forum for consultation, design and implementation that supports a project.
 
Seven "Living Laboratories" have been identified in Oslo, Paris, Rome, London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Southampton. The City of Paris was also involved in the project and took part in it in close liaison with IFSTTAR.
 
In each of these laboratories, an original experiment in urban logistics was conducted, evaluated and, if deemed relevant, proposed to other European cities.
 
For Paris, the urban logistics initiative conducted and evaluated under CITYLAB had the objective of reducing the negative externalities associated with logistics sprawl.
 
The project has led to the development of a new model of logistics hotel: an innovative building mixing urban activities (offices, residential, commercial, leisure) and logistics activities that promote clean modes of transport.
 
Two buildings were involved, one in operation (Beaugrenelle logistics space), the other under construction during the period of the CITYLAB project (it has been in operation since June 2018). This is the Chapelle International project, north of Paris. One of CITYLAB's main areas of work was the establishment of an Observatory for Data and Trends in Urban Freight, for which the IFSTTAR team was responsible.
 
The Observatory produced three deliverables, in 2016, 2017 and 2018, on data and trends related to logistics sprawl, e-commerce deliveries and service mobility.
Towards sustainable airport areas
Dans un contexte de mondialisation croissante des échanges, d’intensification des flux internationaux de marchandises et de personnes, et de hausse globale du trafic aérien qui en découle, les aéroports internationaux constituent des atouts stratégiques pour le développement et l’attractivité des pays et territoires qui les accueillent et qu’ils desservent. La présence d’une place aéroportuaire génère des interactions multiples, entrainant des externalités positives (retombées économiques en termes d’emplois, fiscalité locale, desserte en transports…) ou inversement négatives : pollution atmosphérique, nuisances sonores, congestion...
In a context of increasing globalisation of trade, increasing international flows of goods and people, and the resulting global increase in air traffic, international airports are strategic assets for the development and attractiveness of the countries and territories that host and serve them. International airports and their surrounding areas are of increasingly strategic importance for the development of the metropolitan regions they serve. They are also evolving and becoming distinctive economic and urban places in their own right. At the same time, airport activity has a significant impact on the surrounding environment and generates positive externalities such as economic spin-off in terms of employment opportunities, taxes paid from airport business, transport services, etc. or negative externalities such as air pollution, noise, traffic congestion or agricultural land consumption, etc. Airport areas therefore face many challenges of their own, which need to be addressed at this territorial scale.
 
The Institut Paris Region launched the « sustainable airports” initiative in 2015 with the support of the NGO Metropolis. Three workshops on this theme were organized between Paris and Atlanta. This report stems from this initiative. It is divided into seven thematic chapters, dealing with the major challenges for sustainable airports, making recommendations and highlighting good practices, basing itself on the collective work carried out by the workshops ‘participants and additional research led by the project team.
