Health and territorial welfare are
emerging issues in Europe. They make it possible to tackle regional development
challenges by refocusing public policies and mobilizing municipalities and inhabitants.
For this reason, Grand Narbonne urban
community (Aude department, Occitania region, France) has chosen this challenge,
involving elected representatives and population, in order to share knowledge
and take concrete actions, within the framework of its public policies, with a
special focus on spatial planning and territorial development.
Grand Narbonne has developed its 2030
Territorial project stressing green growth objectives, structured around the
health and well-being sector, in a territory between the land and the sea,
exceptional for its cultural and natural heritage (50% of the territory is
protected) , and sensitive due to the tourist attraction that it arouses (more
than 300 000 tourists per year).
a study conducted in 2017 on indicators of health and well-being, an inventory
is now available for the 37 Grand Narbonne municipalities. The objective is to
develop a tool in order to target, with each Mayor, the strengths and areas of
improvement in each commune.
will be done in conjunction with the regional environmental health programme
“Occitanie 2017-2021” and counting on the areas of competences of Grand
Narbonne: water, sanitation, public transport, spatial planning and development,
in particular the territorial coherence scheme (SCOT) currently under review (2017-2020),
habitat, climate plan, economic activity, sport, culture
order to allow each inhabitant and visitor to act for his / her health, we now
wish to develop an application allowing to share the key data on its
environment and informing about the concrete actions that can be carried out on
to buy healthy products easily, how to get around on foot, by bike, by public
transport or car-pooling, how to find a specialist for medical care and how to
get there from a small village, what kind of plants to choose at home to avoid
allergies, what aids to renovate its housing?
these questions and so many others deserve a global reflection and local and
updated answers, requiring a network of resource persons to help drive change.
The innovation will consist in the development
of an application based on the demands of the inhabitants, thanks to a public-test
panel for the design of the tool. The tool will be interactive in order to
facilitate the user feedback regarding the areas of improvement.
