The first ACTA VISTA site in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, the Fort of Feyzin, a former military structure built in the 19th century and owned by the City of Feyzin, has been the site of an ACTA VISTA integration and vocational training program since 2017. It was born from a desire to restore and rehabilitate different areas of this historic site, including a strong social and territorial approach. It is in the part “Cavalier du Fort”, of 350m2 that the restoration is carried out, with the aim of offering once finished, to the local structures a prestigious place of meetings and seminars, allowing to develop the local economy.
