Discover how Bordeaux in France is presenting its partnership with Lima in Peru:
Bordeaux’s international action is fully in line with the city’s desire to make a success of its ecological transition.
Thus, the priorities of the municipal action plan are also deployed in its actions and links with Europe and the world: adapting the city to environmental challenges by sharing experiences and inspirations, promoting the emancipation of all people throughout the world, responding to democratic aspirations through exemplary initiatives, and pooling the city thanks to associative and multicultural actors.
In this context, a partnership has been established between the schools of architecture of the two cities to work together in favour of the participative design of public space through cross-student workshops. The project is in a study phase and will be followed by an implementation phase.
