2030 M"Metropolises & Territories" will now be the new name of the Community of Competence "Metropolisation" created in 2011.
This change aims to recognize the role of territories bordering cities and metropolises, and the need to anticipate the rapid changes in these areas. The Community of Competence continues and amplifies its activities with its members and partners.

Recent and upcoming activities:
- INTA Initiative for Habitat III with the support of the Caisse des Dépôts, the Metropolis of Grenoble and the newspaper La Tribune.
// Check the programme of our initiative

- Participation of INTA to the Montreal thematic meeting on Metropolitan areas held under the auspices of UN Habitat on 6 and 7 October, which resulted in the Montreal Declaration on metropolitan areas (Declaration in French, English and Spanish). This statement highlights the importance of metropolitan cooperation to meet the challenges of global urbanization which focuses increasingly in metropolitan areas. It proposes the establishment of partnerships between governments, municipal and metropolitan authorities and civil society to continue to improve the quality of life of citizens. It is a contribution to the new urban agenda which will be the subject of the Habitat III Conference in Quito in October 2016.

- A strengthened partnership with Deltametropolis Association (http://www.deltametropool.nl/nl/association) especially during the upcoming activities on the matter of metropolitan construction (INTA39 Congress, metropolitan projects in Europe, metropolitan visits ...)

- Participation in the organization of a meeting that will take place in late October by the Joint Association of the Country of Green Provence where are invited the French Committee for Equity of Territories (CGET) (http: //www.cget.gouv.fr/), the preparatory mission for the creation of the Metropolis of Marseille, Grenoble Metropolis, urban planning agencies of Marseille, Aix en Provence, Toulon and Grenoble. Objective: To work towards the  experimental implementation of reciprocity agreements between cities and territories (more information in the next newsletter).
