France’s borders – focus for the second day

Close-up on the second day devoted to cross-border territories along France’s borders. It will be opened by Jean Jouzel, climatologist and glaciologist and Member of the Academy of Sciences, with the aim of highlighting the diversity of these territories, going from from Dunkirk to Bayonne, by way of Nice, Geneva and Strasbourg, pointing out their specificities and discussing decentralisation, deconcentration and above all differentiation.

There will notably be contributions from Pia Imbs, President of the Strasbourg Eurometropolis, Christian Estrosi, President of the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis, Annie Genevard, Vice-President of the Assemblée Nationale and MP for the Doubs Department, Roland Theis, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Justice of Saarland (Germany) and Commissioner for European Affairs, Carlos Moreno, researcher and scientific director, and Thierry Mallet, CEO of Transdev.

The day will be organised around four thematic roundtables:
- RT#5: Health, digital evolution, climate… time for cross-border transitions?
- RT#6: Cross-border mobility and attractiveness, back to borders?
- RT#7: Cross-border areas, differentiated areas?
- RT#8: Metropolises, mountains, rural areas: what kind of cross-border cohesion?
