ECSA 2024 is thinking of families! We’re delighted to be offering a completely a childcare area for children aged 3 to 12, from nursery section upwards. Located in the event’s wasteland (ask for directions at the entrance), our childcare centre is run by the expert team of the Café Meinado, a well-known parents’ resource centre in Marseille. From Saturday 27/04 from 9am to 8pm, take advantage of free time slots ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours. There will also be a relaxation area for parents with children under 3. To register:


Marseille has many reasonably priced hotels in the area around the Friche de la Belle de Mai. We’ll be bringing you a list of recommendations in the next few days.

We strongly recommend participants do not book accomodation on the AirBnB platform. AirBnB is responsible for rising rent prices in Marseille.

For those of you with a motorised vehicle, Marseille has plenty of campsites nearby.

Finally – without guarantee, we’ll do our best – you can also request accommodation with local volunteers. To do so, please fill in the form below.
