Back in pictures – 3rd Normandy World Forum for Peace

The third edition of the World Peace Forum, organized by the Normandy Region, began on October 1 at the Abbaye aux Dames in Caen. The Normandy Chair of Excellence for Peace, launched and supported by the Normandy Region and the CNRS, and supported by the MRSH (CNRS – University of Caen Normandy) was present.

The Normandy Chair for Peace was presented to the public. Antonio Oposa, leader of the Chair, exchanged with young participants of the Walk the Global Walk program around the MDG 13 during the first plenary conference: “Reasons for anger: Social, democratic and environmental issues for peace”.

Émilie Gaillard, General Coordinator of the Chair, moderated the debate “Amazonia, a planetary issue”, with Gert-Peter Bruch (Amazon Planet). Considered as the lungs of the planet, the Amazon crystallizes divergent interests. Considered as the lungs of the planet, the Amazon crystallizes divergent interests. A vast virgin space essential for the future of humanity, it also constitutes an economic manna from which several countries intend to profit, including Jair Bolsonaro’s Brazil, which calls for the respect of its national sovereignty. What solutions do environmental law and international organizations offer to preserve this unique natural resource? What is the place of indigenous peoples in these discussions?

The public could listen to the testimony of the cacique Ninawa (live from Amazonia) as well as the interventions of Céline Cousteau (environmental activist and documentary filmmaker) and François Michel Le Tourneu (geographer, CNRS).
