Effervescence is an International endowment fund created in February 2016, by the Cités des métiers International Network. This initiative is to strengthen offering service of the Cités des métiers in France and abroad thanks to partnerships with companies willing to support the vocational integration of people.
Since the opening of the Cité des métiers de Paris-la-Villette within the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie in 1993, more than thirty similar spaces dedicated to guidance and lifelong learning in project or operating have been initiated. The Cités des métiers International Network (law association of 1901) was created in 2001 to gather these legally and financially independent structures.
