ENERGIES 2050 organizes its activities
according to the following themes
Humanity facing unprecedented social, ecological and economic challenges, complexity and interdependence, which are all (practically without exception) at the global level, even though their origins may be local or historical.
We are currently living on a very tense international agenda in which the climate issue is regularly highlighted as one of the major challenges for the future of our societies. However, beyond this more or less shared awareness, the question of “how to stabilize the climate?” remains unresolved and is far from consensual.
AGRICULTURE AND ENVIRONMENT
Natural resources and the environment are the common properties of mankind. In a context of uncontrolled socio-economic development and an explosion of global demographics, these resources must be placed at the center of the debate. This includes issues related to the preservation of the environment, its rational exploitation, and the implementation of sustainable strategies to face the food security challenge.
BUILDINGS AND TERRITORIES
The importance of future challenges for cities is such that many analysts believe they hold the keys to the biggest global challenges, that the 21st century “will be the century of the city or will not be” and that their future will condition the very future of our civilization.
The energy transformation and, more generally, our societies transformation will not be possible without decompartmentalizing knowledge and without replacing it in a global perspective. That is why, more than ever, it is a question of studying their interdependencies in order to make them comprehensible to all the citizens of the world.
SOCIAL AND SOLIDARITY ECONOMY
The economy is a challenge at the heart of the sustainable development of our societies. Questionning our economies must allow the implementation of resilient and sustainable, solidarity-based and shared strategies, whether at the international, national or local level.
Gender is an interdisciplinary theme that tends, increasingly, to gain importance and recognition. Despite persistent inequities, women are, in particular through their central role in the education of children, at the forefront of raising awareness of sustainable development issues among future generations.
