In addition to the scientific resources available in the "Food for thought" section, the Positive Future team offers scientific events, webinars, and online conferences to help participants in the contest, and for anyone interested in the themes tackled by the Positive Future project.

The city is a fascinating object, from any angle: a simple human settlement; a sprawling conurbation; a teeming architectural exhibition; a place of life, work and education; a compendium of history; an ethnographic subject that is constantly being renewed?

But what is the city? What is its intimate nature? What is this concordance between it and us humans? Is it only an artefact, a simple construction? Or a reflection of ourselves, of our hopes, our fears, our ambitions; a reflection that would give it a soul? As a Great Transformation (the Green Recovery) is finally being prepared, what place will the city have in it? In what form?
