François Geindre is currently Inspector General for the General Council for the Environment and Sustainable Development (CGEDD). From 1971 to 2004, he held several elected offices (mayor of Hérouville-Saint-Clar, the first Vice-President of the District of Grand Caen...). During this period he was instrumental in setting city policies and guiding the accompanying debates, not only within the Socialist Party, but also as President of the National Commission for the Social Development of districts, then as Co-Chairman of the National Council on Cities. He has also been entrusted with several assignments related to housing, and more broadly to the City. Some of the most notable were missions on funding housing assigned by Pierre Beregovoy, the then Prime Minister; on policies for the distribution of social housing given by Louis Besson, Minister of Housing; and on the fight against exclusions in the city at the suggestion of Jack Lang, Minister of Culture...
From 2003 to 2007, he directed the School of Architecture Paris-Val de Seine. Currently retired from direct political action, he continues his efforts within the CGEDD. As a member, he has participated in several missions to evaluate urban projects undertaken as part of urban renewal policies.
