First anniversary of the Normandy Chair of Excellence for Peace

On June 5, 2020, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Normandy Chair of Excellence for Peace, a first assessment was made: the progress of the educational kits project carried out by the students of the Caen campus of SCPO Rennes on the SAPARA people (ATUPAMA project), the partnership with the NGO Planète Amazone on the forest sanctuary project and the launching of the Good Stories movement under the aegis of Tony OPOSA, the leader of the Chair

Two high-level university lessons were given:

  • The first one by the professor at the Collège de France and Academician Mireille DELMAS MARTY on the Compass of possibilities. This is now a new line of research on Peace with the Earth, included in the roadmap of the Normandy Chair for Peace.
  • The second by Professor Nicholas ROBINSON, our chair emeritus on the ways of peace with Nature.

Finally, Emilie Gaillard, general coordinator of the Chair, presented the various high-level partnerships sealed by the Chair and announced the next scientific activities for the coming months.
