The EPA Alzette Belval asked to students of the Master in Regional and Urban Strategy to realize a forward-looking study on the themes of the sport and the culture, on the horizon 2040 on its territory of action Alzette Belval.

The group project "To anticipate the place of the sport and the culture in 2040 in the High Country" was thus realized in two phases, fed on a study of strategic and university documents, on a number of conversations with actors of the territory as well as the realization of benchmarks and the study of structures on other territories confronted with similar problems.

At first, Alexia Beaujeux, Solène Laborde, Vincent Palaffre, Houssem Sahraoui and Félix Vève realized a territorial diagnosis of which they fed a forward-looking reflection on the territory. This one resulted in the definition of four scenarios forward-looking as four potential images of the territory in 2040.

Secondly, the team defined operational cultural and sports projects becoming integrated into the forward-looking scenarios, and declined according to the objectives, the levers of implementation and to the constraints. This reflection grew rich of a seminar organized by the students for the elected representatives, to stimulate the imagination and lead a common forward-looking reflection on the sport and the culture in 2040.

The report of the students will be published next September .

What is a group project?

Called also capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees Regional and Urban StrategyGoverning 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.
