In Lyon: the night has its charter!
Because celebration, music and conviviality can be combined with respect for others, the City of Lyon is relaunching its Charter for the Quality of Nightlife. Result of a collaboration between the various actors of the night, from the City of Lyon to the establishments of exits while passing by the prefecture, this device aims to reconcile the night activity essential to any large city and the tranquility of the inhabitants. However, the approach goes further than the simple subject of nocturnal noise since it also aims to protect night owls from possible risks (drugs, sexist and sexual violence, discrimination, etc.). In short, it’s a great tool for imagining a more peaceful but equally festive night.
