December 5th to 7th, 2023 the Paysalia show will again unite all the landscaping professionals. There is a particularly interesting program for communities aimed at reflecting together on how to make towns greener. This is a subject that is at the heart of the show and is accompanied by many events. Enjoy it, it only happens every two years!
Green City Day immerses you in innovative landscaping
Green City Day is a flagship Paysalia trade show event for the communities and professionals who work with them. See concrete examples of how to combine urban landscape, biodiversity, and social issues.
After a conference on trees (December 7th, 10 am to 11:30 am), sip a cocktail and enjoy a convivial moment before becoming immersed in three virtual visits:
- The biodiverse plain (Bourgoin-Jallieu, Isère)
- Green schoolyards (Villefranche-sur-Saône, Rhône)
- Community gardens (Villeurbanne, Rhône)
At the end of these visits, there will be one last conference presented by Greater Lyon (3:45 pm -4:15 pm) to assess the Nature plan launched in 2021. See you on December 7th!

Paysalia & Rocalia: ideal synergy!
What could be more natural than combining plants and stones in the urban landscape? Natural stone is a completely adapted answer to the challenges facing communities that are looking for sustainable, ecological, aesthetic, recyclable local materials.
The synergy between Paysalia and Rocalia will give you ideas for the use of natural stone in cities. Two conferences held on the Rocalia forum will show you original ways of including natural stone in urban areas.
- December 5th, 3:35 pm - 4:20 pm: “Seeing stone in a different light: Biodiversity wall // Prolithos pavillion” (by the FFPPS and Les Compagnons du Devoir)

Carré des Jardiniers 2023 is the revival of urban gardens

For three days, stroll through four life-size gardens, products of the abundant imagination of four landscape architects. Discover how each one suggests bringing biodiversity back to urban areas, and try to spot all the little details that make a difference. To get a glimpse of their work, read our interviews with each finalist:
The Biodiversity and the Environment Village will also be open to visitors. Come and enjoy a moment discussing, listening to the advice of experts and participating in workshops run by landscaping professionals.
