"LUCIOLE project" : Urban light optimised for the environment
City/Region : City of Lille , France

Outdoor night time lighting is very present in urban spaces. It’s a major part of ecological disruption and it negatively impacts fauna and flora.

LUCIOLE project aims to limit the impact of light pollution on bats, moths, and the nocturnal insects they feed on. This black network includes a 13-hectare perimeter within a larger biodiversity area of 40 hectares, which will be equipped with a public lighting system that is designed to facilitate the animal travel that traditional lighting impedes. This innovative project has benefited from European Union support, as a part of the ERDF "Nature in the City" program.

The “Ambassadors of Recovery” network
City/Region : City of Lille , France

As a project at the crossroads of economic and ecological considerations, the “Ambassadors of Recovery” network was created by the end of 2018. It is born just after the organisation of a “gratiferia” (free second hand market) during a participatory weekend entitled “Recovery and circular economy”, which took place from 23 to 24 November 2018. At the heart of the reflection was the willing of the City of Lille to get all the inhabitants involved in environmental public policies.

Co-creating a sustainable future for France’s second city: The power of community
Organisation : Civocracy and Ville de Lyon , France , France

At the end of 2016, the government of the Ville de Lyon (France) began working with Civocracy (a CivicTech company centred on citizen participation and co-creation) on a longitudinal transformation project in order to create a better, more sustainable society for their community through engaging their citizens.

The city’s public sector workers are consulting citizens on a range of sustainability and public service infrastructure subjects, including the urban planning of green spaces, education structures, improved public transportation, and the regulation of city temperatures during periods of hot weather.

Project "OSE On S'entreprend Ensemble à Grande-Synthe"
City/Region : City of Grande-Synthe , France

In our territory, the economic model is characterized by wage labour, industrial culture, territorial polarisation and persistence of unequal distribution of resources. This is leading to a deepened social divide, oil dependency and planned obsolescence, which is no longer able to help us cope with the ecological, social and economic challenges the city is facing.

The objective of the project is to contribute to the improvement of the social, economic and ecological resilience of our territory through the setting-up of innovative grassroots entrepreneurial communities. A cultural change on how everyone can/has to contribute to a more sustainable and fairer economic model will be initiated.

SCOL’AIR project
City/Region : City of Lille , France

Anticipating the implementation of national regulations requiring French cities to check and improve air quality in establishments receiving young children, the city of Lille initiated the SCOL'AIR project in 2013.

This project is based on a cross-cutting approach that calls on the competence of many municipal services such as technical services for maintenance and works in public buildings, but also education and early childhood departments. Since 2013, many actions have been already put in place: awareness campaigns, training for teachers and staff members, installation of systems of measures for indoor air quality, works in school and nursery buildings.
