Crowdfunding campaign – The Lemon Tour

Crowdfunding campaign – The Lemon Tour

Le Lemon Tour

The Lemon Tour is a bike rental service to visit the urban and historical heritage of the city of Carthage and its surrounding area, founded by Célia Corneil, an alumnus of the STU Master living in Tunisia.

The goal of the Lemon Tour is to valorise in a different manner the archaeological site of Carthage, by promoting more sustainable forms of local tourism and offering visits available to all Tunisians and tourists alike. It also aims at bringing back bicycles on Tunisian roads.

In that end, a crowdfunding campaign has been launched on the platform Cofundy.

For further information, feel free to visit the website of the Lemon Tour as well as their  Facebook page.

Round-table on shantytowns

Round-table on shantytowns

Sciences Po – Amphitheater Jean Moulin – 13 rue de l’Université – Paris 7. Conference organized by In Situ and Sciences Po Urba (Urban School alumni associations).


  • François SALZGEBER, Director of FNAR- Housing Policy specialist


  • Julien DAMON,  Sociologist, Associate professor at Sciences Po
  • Manuel DEMOUGEOT, DIHAL – Division : “illegal camping and shantytowns reduction”
  • Sylvain GRISOT, Urban planner, Anthropologist
  • Médecins du Monde speaker – “shantytowns mission”
  • Plaine commune speaker – Intercommunity – Plaine Commune Grand Paris

These unprecedented migratory flows across Europe highlighted a spontaneous form of urbanization: shantytowns. France has implemented numerous reduction policies targeting them, but they have not totally disappeared. While shantytowns are not a standard way of living, their numbers are increasing. These urban entities have varied forms as well as divers inhabitants.

Towards the complexity of this situation, we invite you to discover the actors acting on these territories, to examine their objectives and to question their actions.
