The calm of the regional half bike shouldn’t be disturbed much this Thursday in Orleans. Elected officials meet with an agenda that is not really plentiful, with the return of Jean Castex’s decisions. ” health contract Moreover, there is almost no controversy, even if La France Insoumise, which was unanimously approved by Ceser earlier in the week, remembers it in Karine Fischer’s voice. It is in the hands of the state to invest in universities, not the region. “And it is true that the establishment of a Medical School on the La Source campus will have a cost: 13 million Euros split evenly between State and Territory, and 6 million Euros for new physiotherapy facilities.

More nurses too!

The doctors of the future (105 in the 1st year from September) will indeed be trained in the premises of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Management, the buildings will be reconstructed to house medicine and will also be prospective teachers of the registered schools. INSPE. Note that Droit Économie Gestion will move to the Madeleine campus in 2025. François Bonneau is even more pleased with these announcements, which are not made to the detriment of the Tours Medical Faculty, to which new resources will be allocated. Another satisfaction: increased strength of nursing education: ” We went from 800 to 1,400 this fall, and possibly to 1,600 next September. Number of trained nurses in Loiret to increase from 240 to 400 “. ” We are super sensitive !”, echoing the words of the right opposition and the Centre, greets François Bonneau with the duo Forissier-Montillot, who believe the region is “one”. heavy responsibility for the closing of hospital beds and the emergency crisis caused by the lack of trained nurses “.

“These are chat rooms, we want action! »

If he refuses to attack or criticize the cooperation between Orléans and Zagreb, François Bonneau wants to mark his territory: ” I remain focused on my goal, La Source’s health campus, I do not distract myself and refuse to think about the competition between the two institutions. “However, it is out of the question for the region to join the union of the city of Orléans with the various departmental councils in the region to provide tuition and support to medical students.

Other issues should not disturb the session much. A report on relational life, another report on sports should garner general approval with a few caveats. Charles Fournier (EELV) wants to insist on sport and disability, sport and equality between men and women. All also agree to reinforce community life through meetings, forums and consultations. ” All these small talk, Nicolas Forissier (L.R.), We are not moving forward, absolute inactivity. we want action “There is another social issue to build consensus on: experimentation ” Region with zero long-term unemployment where the unemployed are hired on permanent contracts project company » partially financed by social assistance converted into a salary.

Is unemployment a minor issue?

There may be about ten regional regions, three of which are in the process of being labeled nationally. The region frees up 500,000 Euros for the start of projects, with 80,000 Euros for each experiment. With the key to an economic and humanitarian goal: rehiring people who are difficult to employ, and further reducing regional unemployment, which today has barely passed 6%. This explains why unemployment has become an unimportant issue in presidential and parliamentary elections.
