  8. 8. The last declaration of the November 3rd summit for the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership is precisely outlining that “ Sustainable Metropolitan and Urban Development are at the heart of the major issues of the Mediterranean. Sustainable Urban Development implies that governments, developers and financiers to better anticipate future urban growth, need to better meet the basic needs of populations and integrate environmental constraints. This challenge implies the involvement of regional authorities to define appropriate planning through an integrated approach ”. In this context local actors and their partners could rely on ICT for development projects of sustainable urban development. It is also in this context that the idea of creating a network of cities connected and sustained in the Euro-Mediterranean partnership is emerging. This is why since the beginning the Mission for Mediterranean Union is engaged to actively support the Club Green and connected initiative to work on solution for the sustainable cities around the Mediterranean Gilles PENNEQUIN Responsable Développement territorial, Responsable-adjoint Développement durable Mission Union pour la Méditerranée Présidence de la République
  9. 9. Valenciennes , a large city in the North of France, at the heart of a large urban area of more than 2.5 million people, was considered as all disaster: an unemployment rate over 30%, large brownfields, polluted soil. We decided to take our responsibility in grouping all economic actors and local authorities, with help from Europe. We have decided to use ICT as a lever to develop new activities and to establish effective governance with a focus in all the domains of sustainable development. The success is there but we need to go further, in sharing initiatives and to be operational to be really in the 21st century. It’s also why we hosted the first international forum ICT 21, and we created the national College of Advanced Studies for sustainable development (Collége des Hautes Etudes pour le Developpement Durable). We are strongly involved in CIP network, ICT for Energy Efficiency, and we welcome in spring 2009 the international research and academic forum on ICT and sustainable development. That is why we are pleased to be the first city to enter the Club Green and Connected Cities. Pascal Dubois Director of the Cabinet of the Mayor of Valenciennes
