14:30 Parallel Session 1 – The waterfront Next Generation ? I’m living and working here!
Residents and visitors would like better quality of life in river or marine waterfront areas. The challenge is considerable for port cities, with available land becoming more and more scarce, and sustainability an increasingly important priority. How can housing, public spaces, and urban amenities live side by side with economic activities? How can innovative mixed-use solutions be found? How can a leisure-oriented waterfront be transformed into a working waterfront for living and working in a regenerated urban environment, affirming the port city’s modernity?

Rapporteurs:

  • Isabelle Vries, Manager Makers District (M4H|RDM), Stadshavens, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

14:30 Parallel Session 2 – Healthier, greener: my port city environment Next Generation.
Living and working in a clean and green environment is an increasingly important aspiration for city dwellers. The citizen’s legitimate right to better health, protection and respect for biodiversity, preservation of natural resources: on all of these issues, port cities can and must provide practical solutions. For residents of port cities, and for everyone, this is not just an aspiration, but an absolute necessity.

14:30 Parallel Session 3 – Training, learning, creativity: my education Next Generation.
The importance of human capital is now well understood by movers and shakers. For every port city, it is a key ingredient in any medium or long term development strategy. More than ever, economic, environmental and technological changes are making the port an essential stakeholder in a constantly expanding territory. As part of an evolving professional career, citizens are asking to be involved, trained or persuaded to contribute to the vitality and vibrancy of their City Port ecosystem. New training, educational and awareness-raising resources are opening up the port to its citizens, stimulating creativity and encouraging initiative, to enhance the appeal of the City port territory.

16:00 Coffee break

16:30 Parallel Session 4 – Carbon free, circular: the port industry Next Generation.
With many citizens keen to see a move towards a lower-carbon economy that uses fewer resources, port cities are at the heart of the energy transition and a more circular industry. The development of LNG and offshore wind power are bringing new opportunities to generate added value for ports. The creation of heat networks, along with shared control of materials flows between businesses, are helping to make territories more attractive while promoting cohesion. New concepts are being trialled in new sectors of the blue economy. Faced with these major changes in the port and its partners, preparations need to be made and citizens given a role.

16:30Parallel Session 5 – A smarter logistic: my mobility Next Generation.

Online commerce, the emergence of Google, Amazon, Alibaba and other giants of the new economy, have contributed to an extraordinary acceleration in global maritime trade. Unfortunately, this often means more congestion in port cities. The ability to move easily around City Port interfaces, share infrastructures, deliver or receive packages on time and access terminals quickly is becoming a key priority, both for port workers and local residents. Faced with these substantial requirements, the range of possible solutions is widening. With changes to logistical organisations giving a greater role to river or maritime traffic, the quest for “hypermodality” is set to become a reality.

  • Barbara Fluegge, Founder, Digitizing Ecosystems, Switzerland
  • Daniel Olivier, Directeur Veille Stratégique et Innovation, Administration Portuaire de Montréal, Québec, Canada
  • Axel Vallée, Chargé de Projet, Délégation Interministérielle Axe Méditerranée-Rhône-Saône, France

16:30 Parallel Session 6 – City, Port, Citizens: the co-construction Next Generation.
Faced with societal, economic and environmental challenges, the strategies and policies adopted by port cities today will influence their capacity for resilience and innovation in the future. That is why local stakeholders – citizens, urban planners, economic, industrial and port operators – are already adopting new forms of collaboration and governance. They should be encouraged to work together more closely and take advantage of synergies, through co-working and sharing. An inclusive approach to project creation, involving citizens, city and port working hand in hand to achieve sustainable development goals, is another way of finding  the solutions needed for a resilient port city.

Site: Congress Center, 1000 Boulevard René-Lévesque E.

7:00 Networking Breakfast and registrations

8:00 Visit Workshop 1: The waterfront Next Generation ? I’m living and working here!

VISIT PROGRAM: Along the St. Lawrence River, the Promenade Samuel de Champlain represents the major and sustainable Legacy by the Quebec Government to its capital at the time of the celebrations of the 400e birthday of Quebec in 2008. This Promenade is a large park along the St. Lawrence River extending over nearly 4.3 km. One of the most degraded sectors of the riverbanks, the Commission of the national capital of Quebec took over its rehabilitation in order to give the river back to the citizens. It was created in partnership with the Municipality of Quebec and the Ministry of Transport. To keep this privileged contact between the population and the river, the Port of Quebec has built the Foulon Port promenade, which spans along their harbour installations. It aims at preserving the spirit and the architecture of the Promenade Samuel de Champlain, and highlighting the harbour installations via an urban integration where the history and the contemporary reality of the port will go together (Full visit).

8:00 Visit Workshop 2: Healthier, greener: my port city environment Next Generation.

VISIT PROGRAM: The sector of Beauport is the operational port site where the greater part of liquid bulk and solid bulk are handled at the Port of Quebec. The cohabitation with the neighbouring population has required an important deployment of mitigation measures and operational processes in order to limit the potential concerns and negative impacts of the maritime and port operations for the community. Management of the noise, dust and storm waters are a daily concern, especially as the terminal is next to one of the most beautiful entertaining spaces of Quebec City: the beach of Beauport Bay, which is also located on the harbour territory (limited to 50 persons).

VISIT PROGRAM: A wood pellet terminal was built a few years ago in the western part of the Anse au Foulon sector, next to the Promenade Champlain. The terminal is run by QSL. The construction of two massive storage silos was carried out by means of a sophisticated inflation system, and especially has required a quality work in both development and design in order to be integrated into the surrounding urban environment. This equipment is now part of the assets of the port to adapt to the ongoing industrial and energy changes (limited to 50 persons).

8:00 Visit Workshop 5: A smarter logistic: my mobility Next Generation.

VISIT PROGRAM: Mobility of goods and people in the port cities is a crucial and ongoing issue for inhabitants and economic actors. The Port of Quebec has been recognized as the top destination for international cruises on the majestic St. Lawrence River. Every year, more than 200,000 cruisers visit Quebec from May to November. A growing success year after year bringing with him logistic and operational challenges. Congestion, fluidity of transport, security, efficiency of operations, mix of uses of this public sector, cohabitation with the population, are only some of the many elements which had to be approached and discussed with all the stakeholders involved directly and indirectly in this maritime and port activity. These exchanges have led to a technical and logistic collaboration between the Port and the Municipality of Quebec, which represents today an undeniable advantage to take up the challenges referring to congestion and operational requirements (limited to 40 persons).
