“Grenoble, city of tomorrow” campaign: a new opportunity to support City-zen in Grenoble

Last Tuesday evening, 26th of January, a big event gathered almost 200 people in Grenoble Museum to push city council’s initiative “Grenoble, ville de demain/Grenoble, city of tomorrow”. Tools and projects to increase Grenoble’s potential of innovation are provided: City-zen is one of those!


Platform of sharing and anticipation, “Grenoble, city of tomorrow” is like a Swiss knife: multi-thematic and multi-tools to reach multi-audiences. Among these, a think-tank, a label, workshops and the will to animate a community (with a local social network) were presented during this event. Pioneering or challenging projects – like City-zen ! – are already included in: first, to use these tools, and then to benefit from dedicated partnerships.

After an official part with the mayor of Grenoble, people from all walks were invited to contribute to a 6 meters-long poster. According to Grenoble city, the city of tomorrow should be sustainable, inclusive and emancipative: around these 3 axis, participants added projects, ideas and contacts. A successful action, the wall was full about an hour later ! The team of “city of tomorrow” unit is working to pursue exchanges, helping networking to make it real. This was a friendly evening to launch a campaign under the slogan “bring together all the talents that set the city in motion!”

  • The Project

    A city operating entirely on clean energy. In theory, it's possible. But in real life? How to integrate new solutions in existing buildings, systems and people's lives? What are the technical, economic or social barriers? And how to overcome these? That's what we've learned by doing in 20 projects in Grenoble and Amsterdam.
