La Place des Possibles is seen as a living lab, thinking about the architectural rehabiliation of the place, about the governance processes between all the members, and the activities that will take place in the third place. It is still in experimentation phasis and will be a perfect meeting place for smart villages initiatives!
Key conditions for success
Real citizens and local organizations involvement Local political support
Key steps for activity implementation
First steps were dedicated to studies and diagnosis both on the needs of the territory and architectural possibilities in that old factory. 5 organizations were involved from the beginning, other NGOs join the project afterwards, mainly as users of the place, but also implied into the governance processes. Experimentation phasis consisted of few activities integration in La Place des Possibles, open days (last one in sept 2018, next in sept 2019), and the creation of a european citizenship training cycle of 1 year, on the thematics where La Place des Possibles is interested in, allowing to test ideas with little costs.
