TO INHABIT NATURE
Thursday, October 22nd, 6 – 8pm
Auditorium de la Grande Galerie de l’Evolution, 75013 Paris

In the city as well as in the deep ocean, our organizations impact nature from the most direct way, through the occupation of territory, to the most insidious and remote, through our contaminations. How to occupy the Earth nowadays?

Moderated by COAL. With Patrick Blandin (biologist), Christophe Bonneuil (historian of science) and Pascale Marthine Tayou (artist).

THE PRECIOSITY OF THE COMMON
Friday, October 23rd, 6 – 8pm
Auditorium de la Grande Galerie de l’Évolution, 75005 Paris

Far away from the vision of «beautiful nature », exceptional and rare, the ecology shows us to what point shared biodiversity is crucial. This revaluation of the common does not fail to run into our old system of values.

Moderated by COAL. With’Hicham Berrada (artist), Vinciane Despret (philosopher of science) and Cynthia Fleury (philosopher and psychoanalyst).

TO KEEP THE FEET ON THE GROUND
Saturday, October 24th, 6 – 8pm
Bulles d’air MeetCOP21 sur les Berges de Seine, between Pont de la Concorde and the Passerelle L.S.Senghor, 75007 Paris

The notion of anthropocene, human’s era, is based on the observation that humankind has an impact at the geological scale of the planet. Soils, roots of life, become a major issue however under considered in our representations.

Moderated by COAL. With Bruno Latour (sociologist, anthropologist and philosopher of science), Eva Moreno (geochimist and paleoclimatologist) and Otobong Nkanga (artist).
