COMFORT AND HEALTH

BUILDING A CITY THAT CARES ABOUT PEOPLE

A sustainable quarter looks after those who live, study and work there. La Confluence is implementing a whole series of actions in this regard as part of a commitment that takes on a new dimension, that of prevention, through the Eurêka Confluence project.

AN INNOVATIVE HEALTH SPACE 

An innovative health centre of 1,000 m² will open near the Rhône in 2021 as part of the Sollys operation. It will be a showcase for a “new medical experience in the city”. Its objectives are to:

  • place the offer of healthcare and therapeutic support at the heart of urban design,
  • take better account of uses to adapt the offer to residents’ needs.

The ground floor will be entirely devoted to prevention. Health professionals and associations will inform, raise awareness and lead workshops (sleep, nutrition etc.). The first floor will be reserved for occupational medicine. The second floor will host general practitioners and specialists. 

All these actors in the field of health and well-being will thus be brought together in one location in the centre of the quarter.

EURÊKA CONFLUENCE LOOKS AFTER ITS USERS’ WELL-BEING

Eurêka Confluence is a consortium of private and public actors that aims to contribute to the emergence of a smart city that looks after its users. This objective requires a new conception of the city by associating those who make it with those who live there on a daily basis.

Local services, new modes of transport, social ties, energy management, local resources, biodiversity, air quality, health and well-being etc, are all central to the goals of this urban innovation generator.

The “Météo du Souffle” app
Lyon Confluence contributes to improving the local air quality by encouraging sustainable and active mobility and limiting car travel. This aspect of public health is the subject of particular attention, which is also reflected in the choice of construction materials to limit pollution. But the commitment to the quarter’s users goes even further. A mobile app, called “Météo du Souffle,” like a breathability report, has been developed to combine quantitative data on air quality, embodied pollution and allergens with contributions from a network of sentinels (who suffer from allergies themselves). Detectors are installed throughout the area.

Digital technology to watch over the fragile persons
To care for the elderly or people with reduced autonomy, an experimental programme is being prepared on the ground floor of Cité Mignot. It consists in fitting six homes with sensors to detect unusual movements and intervene rapidly. The programme is being evaluated in connection with the innovative health space. Another new application is also being studied: the Activie app to encourage seniors to remain physically active.
