Greater Ouarzazate

Today, Greater Ouarzazate represents an objective shared by the elected representatives of Ouarzazate and Tarmigt who are aware of the need to make it a reality: this common future needs a shared global strategy.
The workshop is a chance for participants to contribute to this strategic reflection aimed for 2050, as well as in the development of an action plan that can be carried out in the short term.
The site’s current dynamics are integral to the reflection (the new urban centre project, the regional military hospital project to the east of the latter, the rise in importance of the Noor complex, etc.).
Building the oasis city of the 21st century is a challenge that brings together and integrates all the principles of sustainable development, as it draws on solidarity-based natural and social-economic ecosystems. In this context, this concept seems sufficiently promising to stimulate new development approaches and to create a model of excellence.

How can local singularities, rooted in history and culture, be applied to support the development of a oasal model, whose very definition implies solidarity and sustainability?
