Industrial Reconversion Initiatives Implemented by Actors in Civil 

Montr?al, Quebec, Canada

When a site that had been the focus of major industrial activities 
shuts down, the local population inevitably suffers the consequences. 
Consequences such as economic stagnation, discouragement, and poverty. 
How can we break out of this kind of downward spiral? The Rendez-vous 
Montr?al 2002 symposium is addressed to those who have inspired or 
launched projects that mobilize actors in civil society to work together 
to revitalize such sites, thus offering new hope to local communities.  

This international event will showcase fifteen or so alternative 
industrial reconversion experiences. Approximately thirty experts, 
academics and key players in this sphere will comment on and analyze the 
experiences to pinpoint the conditions involved in these alternative 
approaches, which give new life to industrial areas abandoned by market 
forces and public authorities. The participants will have an opportunity 
to discuss various aspects and raise questions with the speakers.  

This symposium will provide an overview of alternative reconversion 
initiatives in Europe and North and South America, and give participants 
a better understanding of the dynamics and secrets behind their success. 
The participants will be able to assess the similarities and uniqueness 
of the various experiences highlighted, and discover aspects that are 
transferable to other local development initiatives.  

The Rendez-vous Montr?al 2002 Symposium will be held at the University 
du Quebec ? Montr?al, in the heart of the city's downtown area, from May 
28 to 31, 2002.
