As from the month of June, Paris Metropole is organising a series of thematic debates though out the metropolis entitled "Mongrandparis". Citizens are invited to talk about their expectations of the metropolitan process underway and will be able to raise any specific issues which play a part in forming the identity of Grand Paris on the collaborative platform of mongrandparisjenparle.net.
The results of the census in 2011 showed that 330,500 young people aged between 16 – 25 were living in Paris, i.e. 14.7% of its population. If the young people who commute into the capital on a daily basis to study or work are included, the figure for those who are taking advantage of what Paris has to offer is nearer 600,000. The geographical location of these 16 – 25-year-olds reveals a strong concentration in the Latin Quarter and in the 14th district where the Cité Universitaire Internationale is situated.
