Ecocity 2013In response to a request by the Port of Nantes-Saint-Nazaire, AIVP is organising a session devoted to the problems facing port-cities at the Ecocity 2013 summit, on the subject: “The port, a key partner in shaping the sustainable city”.

AIVP intends to demonstrate, to an audience of players involved in urban development, that ports already play a very active and highly innovative part in the responses contributed by port-cities to the global challenges of sustainability.

The Ecocity concept was originally designed to:

  • Facilitate exchanges among local, regional and governmental decision-makers, researchers and civil society,
  • Bring together all the different disciplines on sustainable cities,
  • Offer equal treatment to all speakers,
  • Enable citizens to play a role.

This 10th edition positions “The city as a vital area of work to grapple with global sustainability issues”.
