Take part in a workshop to repair your bicycle, learn all about low-tech habitats, talk about the climate with strangers over a cup of coffee… Now you can do it all at the Maison de la Planète, located in Boulogne-Billancourt. The place opened on Tuesday 1 March with a very specific ambition: to bring together and create emulation around the ecological transition.
This new place dedicated to ecology, created by the city of Boulogne-Billancourt, is located in the Pont-de-Sèvres sector, a stone’s throw from the Trapèze eco-district. Spread over an area of 1,430 m² and equipped with a courtyard, the Maison de la Planète is primarily intended for citizens who want to accelerate their ecological transition or act for the climate through collective action. † But it will also welcome young companies committed to environmentally friendly activities. Within this structure, debates and round tables can be held, where workshops will also be offered.
Since ecology is at the crossroads of several disciplines, the Maison de la Planète will propose an “urban hybridization program” that, according to a press release from the city of Boulogne-Billancourt, promotes economic activities and civic initiatives in the field of sport and culture. Finally, this new public facility will house the Low-tech Lab Boulogne-Billancourt-Grand Paris, a laboratory for experiments with low-tech techniques promoted by the engineer and navigator Corentin de Chatelperron.
The place also has a co-working space and an associative cafe, where customers can enjoy organic and seasonal dishes, such as a good winter soup.
