Paris aim at introducing a global culture shift in favour of social innovation (opening minds on the social impact of everything done by the local administration and all the stakeholders), and circular economy (open minds on the environmental impact), to change behaviours.
Paris develop coworking places and processes between students and start ups. We want to implement an Circular Incubator, which will have to be linked with the Universities. Paris work with social banks and entities providing funding to the start up, specially social responsible and innovative ones. As Paris is the capital of France several initiatives are of a national nature. Paris is the leader of a new movement among cities in the Circular economy. A manifest was drawn up in a highly participative mode with different stakeholders and several other big cities in the world.
Futhermore, Paris developed and adopted a Plan in favour of Migrants and promote international exchanges for students.
