This weekend, New CITYzens was in Béthune (a city near Lille, in the North of France) to participate to their forum "Béthune - Smart City" on the dimension "mobilization and action led by citizens".
After a morning where various citizens' projects (collectives, associations, social enterprises, etc.) were presented with the team of Bleu Blanc Zèbre (a citizen network that gathers French social innovators), New CITYzens followed in the afternoon to reflect with a group of citizens regarding youth mobilization for their city.
In 2 hours, we collectively imagined several local initiatives to federate the young people and to help them to take action for Bethune. Looking forward to seeing the next steps that will take place in the coming weeks.
