Why Paris

More than 60% of the people who live here are under the age of 40 – this is a young and steadily growing population attracted by the region’s economic power but also by the quality of life it offers: rural spaces represent 50%, and forests 30%, of the region’s surface area. All of which suggests a region with a long-term vision for its future development.
