The eco-valley is going to become a benchmark for
 sustainable development for Southern Europe and the 
Mediterranean. This 450-hectare area, in the Var plain (to 
the West of the town), is the future of Alpes-Maritimes.
 As well as large-scale cultural facilities, a teaching and
 research centre dedicated to professions related to
 sustainable development and ecology, a UEFA standard 
stadium and a 80,000m2 exhibition centre, complementary
to existing structures, manufacturers are keen to be part of the project.
The environmental, energy and social challenges facing the planet require an in-depth reform of the development model of recent decades. The project will be financed by state funds and private capital.
