Centre Baudis, Toulouse, France (ESWW 19 venue)
The finite resources of our planet call into question the environmental impact of our activities. With this workshop, the E-SWAN Sustainability Working Group aims to raise awareness of these impacts, present alternative ways of working and discuss solutions to help us make appropriate choices. The programme consists of a series of presentations by experts in the field, with ample time for discussion and interaction.
We also offer the option of participating in a climate fresk (https://climatefresk.org/) or a biodiversity collage (https://www.fresquedelabiodiversite.org/en.html) on the morning of the workshop. These are collaborative mini-workshops that allow you to understand the systemic aspects of climate change or biodiversity loss. Over a million people have already taken part in these fresks, which are a great way of understanding the inner mechanisms and empowering us to take action. Each workshop involves a team of 6-7 people and lasts 3 hours.
