Feeding & Fueling the City - Three scenarios to reinvent urban logistics

Over the past years, urban logistics has gradually ceased to be a blind spot in urban planning and policy. Its effects – including congestion, greenhouse gas emissions, and dust emissions – are incompatible with cities’ aspirations with regard to environmental protection and efforts against climate change. City dwellers require both a high-quality living environment and wide consumer choice; in other words, they want ready access to products from around the world without compromising their quality of life. So cities must take ownership of urban logistics. But how? For the final workshop of the "Feeding & Fueling the City" research program, La Fabrique de la Cité has presented its three prospective and innovative scenarios for a new urban logistics.

New urban trends

The international seminar of La Fabrique de la Cité will be held in Boston. Its main focus will be on "mobility hubs". How is Boston driving its urban development? The different programs launched by the city such as "Boston living with water" and "Imagine Boston 2030" program, the planning of South Boston, the programs of the "i-team", will be explored during this seminar. We will benefit also from the insights of several academics on the weak signals that are showing the leverages of urban transformation.

Feeding & Fueling the City workshop

In a world permeated by e trade, logistical challenges are more and more central. Besides the massification and dilution of flows in cities already saturated, freight faces the challenges of ecological transition. How to optimise mobility, integrate it and be more green-oriented ? § Available in French only

  • How can we make cities incubators for health?

    Regional seminar - 14 October 2015, Numa, Paris

    How can we make cities incubators for health?

    Fingers are often pointed at cities as a source of negative impact on health. And yet, by virtue of their morphology, the range of services they offer and the support they give to the positive practical contributions made by citizens, cities could become centres of positive health and thus contribute to improved wellbeing for their residents.

    Regional seminar - 23 March 2015, Paris

    Which are the impacts of NICT and data on the city?

    Data can help cities make crucial improvements in any field. We need to take advantage of the experiments that are being carried out in the world to better understand how to build data-driven governments. This is what La Fabrique de la Cité aims at doing by gathering players of the field around practical projects during this meeting.
