From 6 to 11 September, INTA will organize at Saint-Paul, Reunion Island, a panel on the conditions for operational implementation of an insular ecocity (Urban community of Territoire de la Côte Ouest). The objective is to make a prospective reflection on the institutional and financial set of the Ecocity. During a week, a dozen of specialists in the field of urban development will visit the site, interview with local stakeholders and at the end of week, they will submit recommendations to the project promoter. This panel will be preceded by a visit of a delegation of elected officials from TCO in France. The delegation will discuss with the representatives of the city of Nantes, Saint Quentin in Yvelines and try to learn more about some projects in Grenoble and in Seine-Saint-Denis.
