Collective intelligence, to build the inclusive city together

How do we get all locals on board, in a positive dynamic? How do we help young people integrate into the corporate world? How do we help the most vulnerable, the long-term unemployed, the severely excluded, reconnect with the community? How do we make sure everyone has access to culture and services in their region?
Inclusion cannot be decreed, it is jointly developed between local partners. Because everyone, elected officials, technicians, residents, associations, companies, holds part of the expertise and therefore part of the solution. Thinking collectively, sharing failures and successes, pooling resources, is being creative and therefore effective.

Key player and partner in inclusion

RATP Group is much more than a transport operator. Its business activities put it at the heart of urban issues. Of course, it contributes to the local dynamic, by transporting all types of people to their places of work, training, health facilities and public services. Providing good transport is already inclusive. But it is also involved, in line with its values of public service and in close partnership with elected officials, associations, companies, in societal issues: severe exclusion, the circular economy, support for associations, etc.

Making mobility accessible also means responding to individual requests, specific trips that cannot be grouped together.

At the heart of a laboratory district

In the 13th arrondissement of Paris, employment promotion company 13Avenir is leading one of 10 trials in “zero-unemployment regions” launched in 2016 by the public authorities. A stakeholder in the Deux Rives district, the first Parisian circular-economy district initiated by RATP Group and the City of Paris, the company was chosen in particular to ensure the collection and transport by electric bike of around 40 m3 of waste during the operation “La Seine du Tri”, in July 2019.

Large companies need agile operators like 13Avenir. We are taken seriously as a partner.

Beyond the people that passengers can see on station platforms, the homeless on the metro network are all the “invisible” ones who blend into the crowd. The RATP Social Shelter staff members are able to identify them very well: the working poor, single women, elderly people, young people who have broken with their families. The study commissioned by RATP from the Observatory made it possible to bring out this diversity: there are as many different situations as there are homeless people.

The RATP Social Shelter is a very powerful tool. I was struck by the very detailed knowledge that the staff members have of the homeless.

  • 150 contacts/day with homeless people on the metro network for the RATP Social Shelter team

RATP Group, which devotes around €7m a year to combating severe exclusion, created the Social Shelter in 1994, with about sixty seconded staff members, who meet these people 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The issue of homeless people falls under the remit of the City and the State, but the company is committed to it. In order to act effectively, it works with key players on the surface area who also take care of these people.

We have redirected our strategy for the homeless towards a closer partnership and an even more personalised approach.

Innovate to integrate with the Louvre-Lens museum

In partnership with the Denain Local Mission, the Louvre-Lens museum has launched a project to support young adults in social and vocational integration through the discovery of the museum world. The aim is to enable around fifteen young people aged 16 to 25 living in precarious situations to move towards social and vocational reintegration. This is accomplished while at the same time promoting their autonomy and mobility, allowing them to discover a professional environment they do not know (the museum), in order to make them aware of their place as citizens and to make them aware of the world of culture and heritage.

The RATP Foundation supports this initiative. It commissioned Le Rameau, a social innovation laboratory, to support Louvre-Lens in defining the programme’s objectives and in assessing its impact on the young participants. This is an expertise that the museum did not possess and is an important contribution to the project. RATP Group’s subsidiary in Valenciennes also takes part, notably through site visits and the discovery of transport professions.
