It has been now one week since the period of renditions of the Group projects began. Zoom on one of them.

What is a group project ?

Called also capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees Regional and Urban Strategy, Governing the Large Metropolis and the Urban Planning Programme, puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.).

During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.

The group project "The biodiversity in metropolitan environment: levers of acceptability

A group of students from the Master Regional and Urban Strategy presented its group project "The biodiversity in metropolitan environment: levers o9f acceptability" on June 1st to its commissioning organisation : the Institute CDC for the research.

Alexandre Dejean, Aurélia Hild, Roxana Rotaru, Martha Sasso and Djamila Vuilleumier-Papaloïzos were followed by their tutor Philippe Clergeau. Here is a summary of their project :

"Within the framework of the Master's degree, with the support of the Institute CDC for the Research, we led a study binding the notions of biodiversity, metropolis and acceptability, so ending in the problem: how does the emergence of the metropolis condition the acceptability of the biodiversity? What specific levers of acceptability take shape with regard to this particular context?

To answer it, we made, at first, a bibliographical synthesis on the state of the art of the biodiversity in town, according to a sociopolitical approach. Secondly, we realized a crossed analysis of four case studies in French metropolises, Bordeaux, Montpellier, Nantes and Strasbourg. We met various metropolitan, municipal and associative actors there. Our interviews ended in the identification of six levers of acceptability: the right, the economy, the administrative organization, the participative democracy, the culture of the natural and communication.

We then discussed these various categories and proposed for each of them concrete recommendations allowing to favor the acceptability of the biodiversity within metropolises."

To end on a hight note this experience, the 5 students will intervene during the colloquium "The care of the biodiversity has the scale(ladder) of Greater Paris: actors, territories and projects (FR)" organized by the University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne and the UMR Ladys on June 7th and 8th, 2018.
