Vivre en Ville’s research results have been applied to pilot projects, contributing to the implementation of many innovative projects.

Vivre en Ville offers a wide range of training workshops, from general or thematic conferences to technical workshops. Activities can be adapted and customized to suit an audience of citizens, elected officials or professionals. A series of guides, case studies, fact sheets, multimedia tools and online resources are also available.
We offer a variety of consulting services that may be tailored to the particular needs of municipalities, public institutions or businesses, thanks to the varied skills of its multidisciplinary team.

Vivre en Ville regularly takes a stand, often in partnership with stakeholders, on current issues by getting involved in public debate, by calling upon decision-makers and by publishing reports. The organization contributes to the evolution of practices as well as budgetary and public policy choices toward a framework that is more conducive to the development of sustainable communities.
Vivre en Ville has developed a specialized expertise in raising public awareness of various issues associated with sustainable communities.
