La 27e Region is a “lab for public transformation” non-profit organisation working with public administrations to design public policies that are different. Through programs of action-research, the organisation tests methods and expertise from design and creative design, social sciences or amateur activities. The experience of users, civil servants and citizens is the starting point for imagining the public administration and policy of tomorrow. Territories in Residence (“Territoires en Résidences”) is the first program developed by La 27e Region. The modus operandi is simple: three times during one week at the time, a team goes around in local premise such as a neighbourhood, a school, a service house and asks questions its operation from the point of view of its beneficiaries to propose concrete improvements.
