Ile de France 2014 France Paris-Cergy workshops

The southern Paris region as a laboratory for localising the energy, ecological, urban and rural transition

Everybody recognises that there is an urgent need to organise the energy transition !

We have seen a whole series of initiatives to achieve this. They involve significant changes in a wide variety of areas ranging from food supply to consumption and energy production, thereby questioning the development of our towns and cities.

For its 32nd summer session, the Ateliers invite you to find out how a large area (the southern Paris region), which has been dependent on easy access to fossil sources of energy, can shape and implement its own transition. You will be invited to imagine the ways and means of changing our towns, cities and regions to make them more energy-efficient, smarter, more pleasant and more welcoming.

This 32nd summer session of the Ateliers will take place from 1st to the 26th September 2014.

The workshop is open to young professionals and students of all nationalities with at least a Master level.

The video below was made by Anita Molinero and Michel Blazy, the two artists of this session.
