Subject of consultation

General considerations

In the face of environmental emergency, the ecological transition is proving to be a priority collective project, based on an increasingly broad citizen consensus. The cornerstone of this project is the city and more generally the urbanized Earth, whose drastic reduction of CO2 emissions and its ecological footprint must be considered with rigor and imagination. This Consultation is interdisciplinary and is aimed at the expertise of space transformation (urban planning, architecture, landscape) and related disciplines (human and social sciences, environmental engineering, mobility, etc.). , in order to renew the tools, methods and devices that can influence the shape and functioning of the urban.

It is a two-stage mandate of ideas:

  • The selection on file of seven multidisciplinary teams;
  • A prospective research conducted in parallel by each of the teams and intended to clarify the potential of this territory in the form of a space project.

The project perimeter proposed by the Consultation is that of the Greater Geneva Territory Project. This territory has a cross-border character as it includes the Canton of Geneva, the district of Nyon and the French municipalities grouped in the Metropolitan Pole of the French Geneva.
