The Earth Here and Now

Festivals & Series

On the occasion of the COP 26 held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021, the Institut français du Royaume-Uni is launching a series of rendezvous on climate change with French and British thinkers.

They will discuss the way one can rethink ecological activism and practices, by imagining new types of alliances and cohabitation with the living world.

The series will kick off on 23 Sept with philosopher Mark Alizart and translator Robin Mackay around Alizart’s essay The Climate Coup. Other highlights include a discussion between Vinciane Despret, author of Living as a Bird and social anthropologist Garry Marvin on 10 Nov and civil and between environmental engineer Malcom Ferdinand and Lecturer Shela Sheikh on 8 Dec.

See also, What do you expect from COP26?, a series of interviews with Rachel Khan, Pierre Gagnaire, Tessa Brock (Global EcoVillage Network) or Yvan Bourgnon (The SeaCleaners) among others, invited by the Institut français d’Ecosse to reflect on the future and discuss their expectations for the COP26.
