Les loisirs sportifs dans l’estuaire de la Seine : natures périurbaines et cadre de vie

Abstract : This contribution concerns the social and spatial distribution of sporting activities on the scale of a system of towns : the Seine estuary, which is considered to be one of the most anthropised (developed, urbanised and industrialised) in Europe. Why are this subject and this learning scale essential to understand our contemporary urban reality ? The article puts sporting activities back in the context of the territorial processes that shape them and that they structure in return. Far from always being a common consensus, playgrounds are sometimes merely tolerated, sometimes obtained after significant struggle and that is only when they haven’t been poached. What are the territorial mediation measures in place for which sporting activities are the melting pot and which build the contemporary urban living environment ? Usage logics also refer to contrasting social settling and distinctive ecological inequalities that bring into question the different forms of relationship with “nature” that our towns produce in terms of the regulating idea of sustainable development.
