Mayor of the Olympic Village

Opinion polls suggest a majority of French people support the Paris Games, though expensive tickets, political bickering and disruption to life in the capital have soured the mood recently. “Wherever the Games have been held, you have inconveniences that come at the end,” Macron said when asked about the mood of the country. Other environmental innovations in the village include a mini water-processing plant to recycle water that will be used on the more than 9,000 trees and shrubs that are set to be planted on the site.
