By 2050, almost 70% of the world's population will live in cities. But not just any old city, mind you! Cities offering a greener living environment are – and are set to become – increasingly popular. So, let's take a look at the issue of urban planning.

“Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.” These famous words from Lavoisier became the motto of Brézillon which opened a contaminated soil transit, sorting and recovery platform in February.
A facility that can evolve to suit its users: this is Bouygues Construction’s design goal for the 2024 Aquatics Centre. This location will provide the best swimming conditions for sportsmen and sportswomen during the Games and other high level competitions, but will also adapt to the sporting needs of local inhabitants.
UN experts have issued a chilling verdict: in cities and in the countryside, biodiversity is at death's door. The good news, as with climate change, is that it is not too late.

Benoît Gérardin, Assistant Director of property development with Linkcity Nord-Est, presents La Maillerie, an urban renewal project where life went on even before the buildings had been constructed.
