The Greater Paris Metropolis
There is now global competition between metropolitan areas. These dense and connected urban areas have specific features in terms of housing, transport, the environment and the distribution of economic activity. Acting on these issues is central to the Greater Paris Metropolis’ mission as it seeks to promote the well-being of its residents and its territory.
All of these issues reveal the obvious need for the Greater Paris Metropolis. This inter-municipal establishment pools resources and simplifies the administrative system. It restores balance to the territory, making solidarity a top priority. As the number one centre for employment with the largest office space anywhere in Europe, the Greater Paris Metropolis is a major driver of global growth.
Finally, the Greater Paris Metropolis will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024, in collaboration with the State, City of Paris and Île-de-France Region. A new phase has now begun: the Olympic project is being carried out with the aim of creating a global responsible event, that embodies environmental and inclusion values. The Metropolis is also the prime contractor for the future Olympic Aquatic Centre (CAO) in Saint Denis. It will be the only sustainable sports infrastructure built specifically for the Games.
