The Mobile Lives Forum (Forum Vies Mobiles) is interested in how physical movement allows everyone to organize their life, in all its dimensions. Missions Publiques organized citizen workshops and an experimental process of surveying a "parliament of lifestyles."
Problems and Purpose
Created in 2011, the Mobile Life Forum is a research institute which is interested in the way in which physical travel allows everyone to organize their life, in all its dimensions (private, family, professional, etc.). It is as much about studying the place that travel occupies in our lives as it is about thinking about the emergence of greener lifestyles that meet the aspirations of citizens.
In 2015, a quantitative survey was carried out at the European level on the aspirations of citizens on their current and desirable rhythms of life. For a large majority of respondents, this showed a desire to slow down the pace of life and to live more closely. Missions Publiques then organized a more qualitative phase, designing and leading citizen workshops in France with randomly selected people who were not reached by the quantitative survey: people in a very precarious situation, or people with a particular way of life. Today, Missions Publiques continues to support this research institute in an experimental process of a parliament of lifestyles.
