SUEZ, a catalyst for social inclusion in the regions
En France l’emploi est un enjeu sociétal prioritaire notamment pour les collectivités, qui incluent de plus en plus souvent des clauses d’insertion dans leurs appels d’offres. Parallèlement l’avènement de nouvelles opportunités économiques liées à la transition écologique devient un véritable levier de l’économie sociale et solidaire.
 
Pour faire face à ces nouveaux enjeux, SUEZ a créé un pôle d’innovation sociale et le programme Maison pour Rebondir.

In France, employment is a priority societal issue, particularly for local authorities, which increasingly include inclusion clauses in their calls for tender. At the same time, the advent of new economic opportunities linked to the ecological transition is becoming a real lever for the social and solidarity economy.
 
To meet these new challenges, SUEZ has created a social innovation cluster and the Maison pour Rebondir programme. 
 
Through this programme, the group is renewing and strengthening its operational collaboration with integration, employment and social and solidarity economy stakeholders to make the circular economy synonymous with inclusion.

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.
#Hackeuses: training in digital technical jobs exclusively for women
#Hackeuses est une formation 100% femmes, de 6 semaines, d'initiation au code et de découverte aux métiers techniques du numérique et destinée aux femmes de tous âges, peu ou pas diplômées, issues de territoires défavorisés en France et à l'international (notamment au Sénégal).
 
Les formations #Hackeuses ont pour objectif de remobiliser les femmes, combattre leur syndrome de l'imposteur, déconstruire les stéréotypes de genre liés au monde du digital et de l'informatique, leur faire découvrir les différents métiers techniques du numérique afin de les accompagner dans leur choix d'orientation professionnelle...
#Hackeuses is training that’s 100% for women, for 6 weeks, providing an introduction to code and discovering digital’s technical jobs aimed at women of all ages, with little or no qualifications, from disadvantaged regions in France and internationally (especially in Senegal).
 
The #Hackeuses training aims to remobilise women, combat their impostor syndrome, deconstruct gender stereotypes related to the world of digital and computer science, and introduce them to digital’s different technical professions in order to support them in their choice of career orientation.
 
To date, we have organised two #Hackeuses training courses in Dakar, Senegal, which have introduced 50 young women distanced from employment to the basic skills of digital technical jobs.
 
At the end of the training, these 50 women were able to use and put digital technology into practice in their professional activity (including entrepreneurship). 25% of the women in the year group subsequently applied for the 7-month digital reference course launched by Fabrique Simplon and 10% applied for the "LINGUERE DIGITAL CHALLENGE" programme.

The factsheet “A collective regional commitment to a sustainable, inclusive food supply” PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of the metropolis of Metz.
Committed since 2010 to the development of peri-urban agriculture, the Metz metropolis continues to carry out an ambitious, responsible, agricultural and food transition, centred on the needs and well-being of each inhabitant, and respect for the region’s ecological resources.
 
Alongside its Town Centre District and its Centre Communal d’Action Sociale (Municipal Social Action Centre), the Metz Metropolis fully embraces diet and the food supply, a crucial issue in the 21st century. Most of all, it focuses on environ-mental and climate issues, concern for the most vulnerable and the aspiration to promote sustainable economic growth, respectful of resources and biodiversity, beneficial to all stakeholders, without exception.
 
The metropolitan strategy regarding an inclusive food supply is designed around four clear objectives:
 
  • growth in the region’s capacity to produce and process food,
  • the structuring of the supply network for the consumer region,
  • the promotion of "field to plate” practices with the least possible impact on natural resources,
  • a guarantee that everyone has access to a beneficial, reasonably priced diet.

The factsheet « A sustainable food supply for all policy » presents the agro ecology and food policy implemented by Montpellier Mediterranée Metropolis.  
Framed by the Montagne Noire and Cévennes mountain ranges, at the foot of this vast amphitheatre overlooking the Mediterranean sea, Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis has established itself as an attractive European capital. However, more than 18% of the inhabitants are currently living below the poverty threshold, childhood obesity is increasing, especially in social priority districts and the issue of living together harmoniously is more of a challenge than ever. It is of crucial importance today that everyone has access to sufficient food and eats a balanced diet. 
 
Since 2015, the Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis (3M) has undertaken a collaborative approach to the development of a proactive agro-ecological and food policy, based on five objectives:
 
•             facilitating access for all to a local, healthy food supply
•             supporting the agricultural and food sector economy and jobs
•             preserving the landscape heritage and natural resources
•             reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change
•             encouraging social cohesion.

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

The factsheet “Encouraging local agricultural sectors for a healthy, accessible food supply” outlines The Projet Alimentaire Métroplitain (Metropolitan Food Project) of Caen Normandy metropolitan hub.
The Caen territory lies between land and sea, at the intersection of an agglomeration with a high level of services and land that is almost exclusively devoted to farming. The grain plateau coexists with cattle and horse farms while traditional market gardening activities tend to occupy the area behind the coastline. The historical and natural heritage takes the form of a network of towns and villages structured around the Orne river. Today, these geographical features allow a diversifica-tion of agricultural sectors with the close involvement of farmers, public authorities and associations in food issues.
 
The Caen Normandy Metropolis Projet alimentaire territorial (PAT) (“territorial food project”, a French initiative to reinforce local agriculture) has highlighted the territory’s response to the population’s requirements in terms of good quality locally produced food. Local authorities are now involved in the structuring of new economic sectors, that are very promising in terms of local jobs and immediate benefits for inhabitants.

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 coordinated food distribution network” presents the solidarity food strategy of the City of Reims.
Prior to 2011, 3,000 people were receiving food aid from a multitude of charity organizations in the Reims territory. Given this situation and in order to provide appropriate assistance to households, which went beyond food aid, it proved necessary to create a project to bring together local organizations and to refer vulnerable and disadvantaged families to social workers.
 
In this regard, the community grocery store has been a useful tool for encouraging a joint approach.
The assisted populations are either exposed to the risk of social exclusion due to the insecurity of their situation in relation to employment, income, housing or health, or are already being neglected or marginalized. It is therefore essential, beyond the provision of ad hoc aid, to encourage the restoration of social cohesion around a project, using a structuring tool which favours educational aspects and support.
 
At the same time and in general, the distribution of aid in the form of packages implies a total absence of choice of products received, and a certain loss of dignity for the people concerned. Conversely, the community grocery allows a choice from the products available with a modest financial participation.
