800 000 people were at the start of The Bridge, in Saint-Nazaire.

To organise the event The Bridge in 2017, the association exclusively chartered the Queen Mary 2 for more than 250 companies, institutional and associative stakeholders, and almost 70 experts, for a forum on the “World of Tomorrow”, between Saint-Nazaire and New York.
