As in all experimental territories, this company opens its doors to partners and the general public, Monday 30th of May to Friday 3rd of June to make visible the useful and complementary works that can be carried out on a city scale.

TZCLD… in a nutshell!

The Zero Territories Long-Term Unemployed experience, to which the city of Pontchâteau (the first in the Loire-Atlantique) has just been officially added, has the main objective of charting another course in the fight against long-term unemployment.

In particular, it makes it possible to redistribute the costs associated with long-term job deprivation, in order to help to sustainably finance jobs that are socially useful for the territories, in addition to those existing locally and guaranteeing decent working conditions.

The first experimental phase involved 10 territories between 2016 and 2021. Currently, 21 territories at national level are involved in the process. In these territories, since the beginning of the experiment, almost 1,300 additional jobs have been created.
