At the plenary Assembly of the 31st May in Bobigny, members of -Paris Métropole- officially launched a call for tender aiming to encourage new methods for producing metropolitan projects, founded on constructive co-operation.
During the assembly more than ten initiatives were already put forward by members present.
Bertrand Delanoë, the Mayor of Paris, proposed the development project for the banks of the Seine -projet d'aménagement des berges de Seine- its dossier was presented within the framework of -110 Initiatives-.
Through this call for initiatives, the public authorities, which are members of -Paris Métropole-, wish to promote citizens' participation in history, the future and a strategy which they themselves refuse to see develop without their participation.
The content of this call for initiatives was drawn up collectively during a seminar organised on 15th and 16th April 2010 by the Apur and the AU îdF. It was attended by numerous members of public authorities, representants of the 10 teams of The International Consultation for Greater Paris -Grand Paris-, experts, actors in the economic world and civil society.
This first experimental phase addressed the already enrolled 110 members and those who will join -Paris Métropole- by the summer. A second phase of development and expansion to all actors of the Metropolis to the call for initiatives will be launched in 2011.
Since 2009 the APUR has accompanied work for -Paris Métropole-, by producing diagnoses, analyses and methodological notes.
