What if we went beyond our imagination to create together the city of tomorrow?
❞ A city that combines the benefits of the countryside with the advantages of the urban world. Manon and François, two young city dwellers, have traveled the world in search of concrete initiatives that bring nature back in the heart of cities. Between the exhilaration of Japan's verdant skyscrapers, the unusual production of mushrooms in dark Parisian parking, or a mad Canadian supermarket that grows its produce on its roof, they discovered positive and accessible solutions that are already working. Along the way, they met these people with revolutionary ideas. By making the link between all these solutions, they offer us their vision of what the beautiful city of tomorrow could be... ❞

Why this project?
A podcast to find out why the team is embarking on this adventure!
What future for the city of tomorrow?
There are two ways of looking at the city of tomorrow:
The first is a survey that says 60% think that the city of tomorrow will be more polluted, 62% more saturated and denser and 54% more vertical with high-rise buildings as far as the eye can see...
The second, more optimistic, is a city where a wind of greenery blows through the countryside and where we find all the amenities of the city lifestyle, to make living together better. A city where nature would improve the quality of life of its inhabitants and where it would participate in urban beautification.
Everyone needs to project themselves, a bit like when people dream about their new homes and make plans in the architect's office. However, there are no architectural plans for the city of tomorrow. "What if we design those plans for a positive future?"
Anything but not a green movie!
This is not a green documentary, it's a look at the city as it might be tomorrow... Employees of a public structure, city dwellers, leaders or employees of private companies, we all have a role to play for a greener urban future...
Director of The Beautiful City, we will also be the main actors. Through this film, we will tell you about our trip and all our adventures along the way.
PRODUCER & ACTORS
Cultural shock, unexpected events, laughter, last-minute changes, chaotic shooting, we will take you behind the scenes of the production to always be as close as possible to our reality.
From country to country, our film will chronologically retrace our itinerary, punctuated by unforgettable meetings with project leaders. By telling you their stories, project leaders will transport us into their universe, which will be illustrated with wide-angle images of these green projects that border the highest skyscrapers in the world.
A HUMANIST & HOPEFUL FILM
Toutes les initiatives que vous découvrirez sont à la portée de tous et peuvent être mises en place partout dès aujourd’hui. Les porteurs de projets de ces initiatives sont des personnes ordinaires aux idées révolutionnaires qui métamorphosent nos villes en écosystèmes, nos quartiers en forêts et nos buildings, en arbres habités.
Bringing nature back to the heart of our cities
Oxygenate, provide well-being and freshness, preserve biodiversity and air quality, be a source of local food... These actions are as many small green lungs for our neighborhoods as they are beneficial for the environment, the quality of life, the health of the inhabitants, and the attractiveness of the city.
In full development all over the world, urban agriculture encompasses a wide variety of practices: from open soil projects to above-ground cultivation in aquaponics, from permaculture projects to livestock or grazing projects. Recreational, urban agriculture makes it possible to reconnect with a certain form of nature and seasonality and encourages citizen participation. It can also play a role in the circular economy and encourage short circuits. Educational, it allows consumers to reappropriate the food production phase, to have access to local products, and to encourage them to modify their diets towards greater sustainability.
Food waste, green waste from parks and gardens, and other biodegradable waste are still today massively dumped in landfills, generating greenhouse gases, or incinerated even though they represent an important material resource. These materials can be used to produce energy through mechanization, and/or be reintroduced into the plant cycle by composting or spreading.
Citadins, associations, chefs d'entreprise, villes, experts... au cours de ce voyage, nous avons rencontré ces porteurs de projets révolutionnaires qui ramènent la nature au cœur de nos villes et actent au quotidien pour un avenir urbain plus positif.
