  • A real treasure: this is how the Parc de la Villette appears today. What were once huge slaughterhouses began to change in the 1980s, and have been evolving ever since. Culture, leisure, relaxation: the north-east of Paris lives with and around the park, from the Grande Halle to the Zénith, from the Cité des Sciences to the Philharmonie, from attending shows and exhibitions to playing sports. Here is a place for discovery, amazement, release, but so are, by radiance, the surrounding neighbourhoods. It is impossible not to find something to your liking!

  • On the border between France and Spain, fought over for centuries, littered with castles, monasteries and tiny hilltop villages, divided by rivers and gorges, is the département of the Pyrénées-Orientales. Dominated by Canigou, the magical, mystical mountain, it is a sun-drenched land of vineyards and olive groves. Blessed with spectacular scenery, it is rich in art and history and, for walkers, cyclists, skiers, sailors, divers, swimmers, windsurfers and mountaineers, a paradise.
    Jane Mann and Kate Hareng work together to produce P.-O. Life, the quarterly Anglophone magazine of the Pyrénées-Orientales. Both are passionate about the multi-faceted region in which they have chosen to live and know it intimately. In their book they invite you to explore and enjoy this southernmost corner of France, from high Pyrenean peaks to sparkling Mediterranean sea.
    Jane has researched, photographed and collected a book-full of diverse and exciting places of interest for people of all ages and tastes to visit. Her descriptions are interspersed with Kate's useful vocabulary, French exercises, `Did-you-knows', tongue twisters and jokes.
    Lavishly illustrated, the lively blend of information and essential facts make their helpful and instructive guide a must-have for visitors and residents alike.

  • This fascinating account brings to life the history of Port-Vendres, a vital Mediterranean port from antiquity to the present day. This deep water harbour has always been a key location, close to the border between France and Spain, where the Pyrenees drop down into the Mediterranean. It has sheltered Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths and Moors, the French, the Spanish, as they traded and fought their way around the Mediterranean coast. Soldiers, sailors and fishermen have landed here for centuries, making this small town a veritable mirror of the Mediterranean world.
    Author Jane Mann has been researching and observing it all from her vantage point facing the entrance to the port, and offers a delightful and intriguing picture of a place she has come to love and call her home.

  • OECD's comprehensive review of rural policy in Italy. On average, rural regions in Italy have some of the highest GDP per capita among the OECD countries, yet unexploited potential remains. This analysis of rural Italy reveals heterogeneous economic conditions, an increasing elderly population and a diminished focus on environmental concerns. This suggests the need for a broader rural policy approach that reflects the changing demands upon rural resources and that considers other aspects of rurality including health, education and quality of life.

  • Damages to economic assets resulting from natural disasters have soared in the past fifteen years, and climate change models forecast intensified exposure to extreme weather in many OECD countries. This OECD review of risk management policies focuses on Japan, because the geography, topography and climate of its national territory subject it to serious natural hazards, especially seismic activity and typhoons. The report looks at Japan's policies in the areas of monitoring, preparing for and responding to floods and earthquakes, seeking out and identifying good practices and areas where improvements could be made. The case studies consider several issues of particular interest to policy makers, such as how to take climate change into account for long term policy planning related to large scale floods, and Japan's unique earthquake insurance scheme for damages whose probability and impact are hard to accurately assess.

  • Discover Paris in a whole new way!

    Gaze upon the jewels at Place Vendôme, soak in the souk vibe at Marché des Enfants Rouges, kick back in the Roman Lutèce arena, eat a burger in front of Molière, dance on an open-air terrace at Quai d'Austerlitz...

Adopt a French attitude and hop from private terraces to funky hole-in-the-wall spots and gorgeous rotunda-shaped underground spas. When wandering through a covered passageway, give into the temptation of irresistible goodies at a neo-bistro or be seduced by rare finds at a trendsetting concept-store. The best stroll, the tastiest galette, the funkiest second-hand shop and the most glamorous hotel: Judith Ritchie found them all for you. Get off the beaten path and dive into the City of Light's effervescent whirlwind with 300 Reasons to Love Paris!

  • The Guide to Creative Montréal's Rosemont, Saint-Michel and Villeray tour offers a foray into the fields of performing arts, visual arts (art galleries and public artworks), digital arts, music and design.
    Located at the crossroads of two vast Montréal boroughs, the area covered by this tour combines several neighbourhoods, from the Petite-Patrie area and its Plaza Saint-Hubert to the Saint-Michel district and its Cité des Arts du Cirque. While exploring these neighbourhoods, you'll encounter a variety of environments: commercial and residential streets, parks and wide-open spaces, school areas, highway networks, a currently-used landfill site and another under construction, densely populated areas and others that are more isolated...
    This diversity is also reflected in the sector's cultural offering. No form of art dominates here, and the few major institutions that guide this tour are linked to different fields.
    The tour features countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.

  • The Guide to Creative Montréal's Milton-Parc, McGill Ghetto and Mount Royal tour offers a foray into the fields of performing arts, visual arts (art galleries and public artworks), digital arts, music and design.
    The Milton-Parc neighbourhood is poised between the past and the future: the row-house architecture of yesteryear contrasts with the forward-looking faces in the streets. McGill University is not far away, and it makes its presence felt. The presence of the oldest and most prestigious of Montréal's four universities gives the area its unofficial name: the McGill Ghetto.
    While there are a few cultural institutions to visit here, most of our tour will be devoted to soaking up the culture of the street... and the mountain-;the McGill Ghetto has the considerable perk of sitting at the foot of Mount Royal. Naturally, the tour will lead you up its slopes, home to several works in the City of Montréal public art collection. The tour features countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.

The cultural offering in these three neighbourhoods is mainly composed of public artworks, but also includes two Maisons de la Culture and performance halls which present a variety of concerts and other shows.
    The tour features countless bookstores, record stores, cafes, restaurants and shops where you can stop along the way.
