The concept of local development, put forward for thirty years in Verdun, has created citizen mobilization and above all contributed to developing a sense of pride and belonging in our community. We have brought together business people and citizens around the same objective. After promoting for a few years the slogan I have my heart in VerdunVerdun Luv became our reference ten years ago to continue to energize our community and nurture this synergy between business people and residents.
The Verdun Luv column is published weekly in Metro IDS-Verdun.
