Public actors together


In this section, we set out to highlight all the actions implemented by the various ministries and local authorities in relation to third places.

This is where you can find out about projects, collaborations, financial arrangements, agile initiatives, public agents, project leaders and ministerial project managers – unveiling the dynamic ecosystem associated with third places and illustrating the variety of actors, the diversity of partnerships and action plans, and their territorial utility.

By providing support for innovative territorial projects and guided explorations carried out in the third places, many public actors are engaged in these creative spaces in a quest to find new ways of acting together to promote the economic, digital and ecological transitions.

This is where you will find inspiring initiatives and examples of support actions developed by public actors involved at local and national levels.

From public innovation laboratories and the financing of social integration support via local support mechanisms (DLA), to a subsidy from the balancing grant in favour of rural territories (DETR) for the shared gardens of a “Fabrique de Territoire” (territorial third-place resource centre), this is where we will be telling you about the schemes rolled out at all levels in order to revolutionise joint public actions.

Public actors in action!
