As part of of the study “A fresh look at the economy / new economic models: circular, collaborative, social and inclusive”, an initial survey of these new consumer services has been carried out.
They were organised under the following headings: Consumers and Small Farmers Associations (AMAP), Bakers, Communal gardens, Work cooperatives, Coworking, Fab Labs, Hacker spaces, Skills swaps, Recycling centres and Hotels/restaurants.
Exactly 1,190,024 women were counted in the capital at the last census in 2011. Parisian women therefore make up 53 % of its total population. This slight feminine over-representation is due to a large influx of young women who come to Paris to study (55 % of the female population is between 20 and 24) as well as to the longer life expectancy of women (who make up 65 % of the population of 75 and over).
A new survey of Parisian shops and high street businesses was carried out in April 2014. It was set up by the City of Paris, the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Apur. 62,144 retail and services outlets within Paris were listed.
2012 and 2013 were productive years for the Parisian Urbanism Agency. Apart from supporting urban policies, the essential role of urbanism agencies, the Agency Management Committee established a roadmap which stressed the importance of consolidating the reference databases for the cartographic collection, reforming working practices and increasing the skills base and partnerships on the outskirts of the Greater Paris Metropolis -Métropole Grand Paris-.
