NORD-PAS DE CALAIS: A LEADING REGION IN THE PROGRESSIVE STRATEGY TOWARDS A CARBON-FREE ECONOMY
In November 2012, during the 6th World Forum Lille, the regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Nord-Pas de Calais regional council asked Jeremy Rifkin to take part in designing a roadmap to lead Nord-Pas de Calais towards the third industrial revolution. It was a first in France.
On the 15th of May, after spending three days thinking together and debating passionately, regional political and economic players and Mr Jeremy Rifkin’s teams closed the seminar that brought them together in Lille. It is a crucial step in the design of the Masterplan defining the guidelines that will enable the region to build its third industrial revolution resorting to the five pillars, as well as to energy efficiency, circular economy and function-based economy. This Masterplan will be unveiled publicly on the 25th of October, during the 7th World Forum Lille.
