THE AWARDED PROJECTS

BRANDING

ESSENTIAL COSTA RICA
Costa Rica

Building on its reputation for sustainable tourism, Costa Rica has launched a national brand based on the same values to promote tourism, exports, foreign direct investment and Costa Rican culture in an integrated manner. This branding is effective: not only does it enjoy the support of the inhabitants, but the country’s reputation has been strengthened.

TOURISM

10XCOPENHAGEN – WONDERFUL COPENHAGEN
Copenhagen – Denmark

In order to refine its tourism strategy by 2030, the destination management organization of the Greater Copenhagen, Wonderful Copenhagen has launched a survey among international customers and residents. The 10XCopenhagen project focuses on the perception and experience of tourism and the future drivers of tourism growth. It made it possible to establish recommendations and propose new orientations on the basis of objective data.

major projects

La Cité Fertile is a major project to rehabilitate a former SNCF station, covering 10,000 hectares in Pantin, transformed into a third location. Many activities and services are offered: creation and implementation of eco-neighbourhoods, installation of an incubator, citizen living space, concert halls, catering facilities, shared and sustainable agriculture spaces… The project is being managed by the Sinny & OOKO agency, which has already won awards for other third place/spaces of life projects in the Paris region.

economic development

Bizkaia Talent offers companies, organizations and individuals a wide range of services dedicated to attracting talent. A web platform disseminates information about Bilbao and its region (key figures, identity, quality of life, etc.). It also identifies opportunities and possible aids or networks that can be mobilized. By conducting strategic reflections and leading networks of ambassadors at European level, the association has succeeded in attracting new professionals, bringing back members of the Basque diaspora and taking advantage of Brexit.

territories with specificity

TRANSFORMCITY
Amsterdam – Netherlands

Cities are sometimes confronted with a paradox: they can be both in real estate tension and have vast areas of industrial wasteland that are difficult to develop. “TransformCity” is an online platform that connects the City, project developers, landowners and citizens. It facilitates the development of collaborative urban projects to develop a sustainable, resilient and inclusive local community. It is currently being implemented in two of Amsterdam’s largest urban renewal areas.
