Who benefits from Paris? A "World" conference in Paris on January 30th


Paris has more than ever the wind in its sails. In the race for the podiums of the cities of the world, the capital is in 2018 among the most attractive cities, behind New York and London. In the last ten years, about 600 thirds of the sites have been established in Greater Paris, including over one hundred incubators. With the Grand Paris Express project, its 200 kilometers of automatic metro lines and 68 new stations, Paris is establishing itself as a global city. It is one of the metropolises that develops an ambitious climate policy and relies on the circular economy.

But the capital also suffers from a housing crisis, accessible only to the richest. The square meter is twice as expensive as Lyon, four times more expensive than Marseille. With the development of short-term rental platforms, downtown neighborhoods are abandoned by their inhabitants for the benefit of wealthy tourists.

Who benefits from Paris? Can we still transform the capital? These questions will be at the center of a morning of debate organized by The worldWednesday, January 30, at the launch of the "Le Monde Cities" innovation awards. WeWork coworking space (Paris IXis), from 8:30 to 12:30
