B-the Message
This is the thematic of the day, working as a fil-rouge for each day. This is not an event that you can register.

Why doesn’t the message come across?
This first chapter will play as an introduction to the main focus of Place to B : trying to reach new audience and pass the message through the public differently. It is thus necessary to ask this first question: why this main issue of concern isn’t taken into account seriously enough (by the media, the population, etc.)?
-----
Pourquoi le message ne passe-t-il pas ?
Le premier chapitre servira d’introduction au principal objectif de Place to B : tenter de toucher une nouvelle audience et de faire passer le message de manière différente auprès du grand public. dans ce contexte, il nous semble néces- saire de poser cette question en préambule : pourquoi ce qui devrait être un souci majeur de l’humanité n’est pas pris en compte sérieusement (par les médias, le public, etc.) ?

Why doesn’t the message come across ?
This first chapter will play as an introduction to the main focus of Place to B : trying to reach new audience and pass the message through the public differently. It is thus necessary to ask this first question : why this main issue of concern isn’t taken into account seriously enough (by the media, the population, etc.) ?

Extract of Climate Outreach report - The Seven Dimensions Of Climate Change - January, 2015:
We need action and quickly but this message doesn’t really get us anywhere. Mostly, this is because climate change is not enmeshed in the public consciousness in the way it would need to be for everybody to feel that this message of urgency was for them.”
Climate change rose to public prominence in a primarily scientific and “environmental” issue, entering the public, political and media discourse via warnings from climate scientists like James Hansen and the early advocacy of modern environmental groups such FOE or Greenpeace. Climate change is a scientific fact and a physical reality, but it is not yet what sociologists call “a social fact”.
We are changing the climate, but it’s not yet changing us.It’s not an integral part of the way we shape our social practices, nor a significant enough cultural norm to act as a constraint on our behavior.
The question is: how to change the signifiers of climate change ? How shall we move from the scientific and environmental signifiers (melting ice, plaintive polar bears, hockey-stick graphs) to better understand the human nature and systemic nature of the challenge ?
Climate change is a completely unique collective action problem, and also something that is implicated in every aspect of our lives, but we need to find other signifiers than the invariably scientists and environmentalists ones. This calls for a radical reframing that captures the fact that climate change is not merely another “environmental issue”.
We need to build a new sense of collective purpose that embraces the diverse elements of human experience.

Les Saisons [MOVIE]
Limited Capacity seats available

Les Saisons is the new Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud's documentary. Come and see this preview broadcast with the film crew.

Synopsis:
After traveling the globe with migratory birds and surfed in all oceans in the company of whales and manta rays, Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud return for this sequel on one more familiar land. They take us on a wonderful journey through time to rediscover these European territories we share with wild animals since the last ice age to the present.
Winter lasted over 80,000 years when, in a very short time, a huge forest covers the entire continent. A new planetary configuration and everything is upset. The seasonal cycle is set up, the landscape is transformed, fauna and flora are changing. The story begins ... In an endless ice age followed by a deep, rich forest and then under the leadership of new men, a smiling countryside.
Les Seasons is a sensitive and original epic that chronicles the long and turbulent shared history that binds man to animals.

Release Date: January 27th, 2016
Directed by Jacques Perrin, Jacques Cluzaud

Science is only one dimension of vastly complex system of human enterprise. What is our expectations from scientists - and what do they expect from themselves? Is it time to cast aside all silos and allow for the free flow of data and information coming from Science to inform all other dimensions of human society without fear of reprisal for those working in the sciences. What do scientist know, how can we amplify their findings and turn them into positive actions which inform our political, economic, and legal systems and change behavior?

DATA for climate
Limited Capacity seats available

The data revolution promises to unleash tremendous efficiency gains against pollution, by making our planet more connected and our cities smarter, cleaner and more open.

Come meet the revolutionaries building a better world with data – one kilobyte at a time, in government, startups, NGOs or academia!

An afternoon of pitches and presentations animated by Romain Lacombe (Plume Labs).

1. Making the invisible visible through data
What are the costs of climate change? How much pollution do we breathe around the world? Can the data from our mobile phones help us fight climate change?

Hear from innovators who use data to reveal the world around us:
- Andrew Jones, MIT & Climate Interactive
- Karen Bastien, We Do Data
- Nicolas de Cordes, Orange

2. Open policy-making to make the air more transparent
Governments must be part of the solution to climate change, but how can we help them do so?

These public sector innovators are betting on openness to help us beat pollution:
- Robert Kirkpatrick, UN Global Pulse, Executive Office of the UN Secretary-General
- Anne Ged, City of Paris Climate Agency
- Chloe Bonnet, Five by Five
- Romain Talès, Prime Minister’s taskforce Etalab for Open Data (data.gouv.fr)

3. Citizens, united in data?
Change starts with us – but how do we start the change? And how can data help us?

Learn how designers and activists use data to foster individual and collective action against climate change:
- Daniel Kaplan, La FING & Transitions2
- Carole Morage, C3 Challenge
- Erwan Cordeau, IAU Urbanism Institute

4. Code for COP: education against climate change
The best way to change the world is to invent tomorrow. But how can we teach children to love computer sciences? Let's make it fun for them to code – and help save our climate!

Yves Boileau of Orange, partner of Place To B, will moderate a workshop on teaching children how to create and develop animations and games. Because Orange trusts in their capacity to express their opinions and contribute their own way... starting now.

What is the role of technology in changing the world?
We need to scale up decarbonisation with major Research, Development, Demonstration and Diffusion efforts (RDD&D) to develop low-carbon technologies and ensure their availability and affordability. How to endow everyone with the power to create? What are the social and cultural factors that prevent existing solutions from scaling up?

Is technology enough to reverse the negative consequences of climate change? Are we putting too much hope in the idea that we can engineer our way out of this difficult situation? What are the feedback loops started when disruptive technological innovation is unleashed. What are the potential dangers and how do we weigh them against only imagined implementation.

1. Screening of short films directed by African children in view of showcasing answers to local challenges:

A TREE IS WORTH MORE THAN ITS WOOD (Guinea - 2014 - HD format - length 19m11s - Deforestation due to inhabitation)
Synopsis: Each morning, Aguibou goes wood chopping before heading to school. Intrigued by the progressive disappearance of the natural resources surrounding his village, he decides to investigate.  Assisted by his friends, he will make some curious and interesting discoveries…
Challenges: Deforestation is an immense issue in Guinea. This film examines the causes and consequences of this phenomenon while simultaneously offering solutions such as improved dwellings, better selection of the species to be cut, or a return to proactive laws.

SIDIKI, THE COACHMAN FROM COYAH (Guinea - 2014 - HD format - length 15m39s - Child trafficking)
Synopsis: Overwhelmed by the domestic tasks given to her by her host family, young Aïssatou can’t attend school. At market, she meets Sidiki, who will introduce her to other children dealing with work. Together, they may just find their way to school...
Challenges: Child labour is part and parcel of a multitude of contexts, rendering obsolete any approach vying solely for its repression. There are numerous parameters to factor in, and this film seeks to show part of this diversity. The film also places the focus on support from peers and professionals.

THE APPRENTICES (Guinea - 2014 - HD format - length 16m35s - The occupational integration of youths)
Synopsis : Aboubacar is apprenticed with a carpenter. In order to pay for his training, he teaches classes of his own to the neighbourhood youths. Without tools or real professors, however, their progress is limited. Encouraged by Mariame, they decide to create their own training centre.
Challenges: Training centres for apprenticed youths are more and more scarce in Guinea, largely for lack of resources. Guinean youths are increasingly and overwhelmingly left to their own devices. This film is inspired by the true story of Guinean youths who banded together to set up their own training centre. It takes a look at RGAs (revenue generating activities) and raises the question of young women’s place within the professional sphere.

THE EASTERN FOREST WILL NEVER DISAPPEAR (Madagascar - 2015 - HD format - length 18m20s - Deforestation due to agriculture)
Synopsis : Solofo et Mahery are two young farmers from a small Malagasy village. Seeing their crops diminish from year to year, they start to investigate. They’re about to discover the forest is worth far more than money, and that other cultivation methods are possible.
Challenges: There is often a conflict between preserving fauna and flora and ensuring the needs of a local populace seeking to sustain itself. In order to curb forest exploitation, other revenue generating activities must be put in place, and this film brings some of them to light.

PROUD TO BE A MOTHER (Madagascar - 2015 - HD format - length 21m20s - Supporting teenage mothers)
Synopsis: As she became a mum at too young an age, Diamondra is an outcast. A group of children will introduce her to another young mother who isn’t suffering from the same stigma. Diamondra will discover and become interested in solidary nurseries, facing opposition from her partner...
Challenges: Young mothers can find themselves cast out by families unable to provide for the extra mouth to feed. Often, they are forced to leave school and find themselves on their own, which can cost them their future. Solidary nurseries allow a young mum to take charge of her own destiny, by learning to better care for her child, undergoing professional training, and so much more...

TSIARY, A NEW START (Mada - 2015 - HD format - length 21m11s - Alternative education for street children)
Synopsis : Tsiary is a minor just out of prison. Used to getting by in the streets, he’ll come across a school unlike any other, where the programme includes acrobatics and juggling tricks. Tsiary will gradually be drawn in, before the streets try to lead him back their way...
Challenges: In Madagascar, a significant number of children drop out of school, largely for lack of money. They start doing odd jobs and, becoming used to surviving through resourcefulness, hardly find their way back to the classroom. Certain associations base their approach on alternative education, centred on the arts, to captivate these children and set them back on the road to school...

2. Live music session featuring:

- Gbediga (Reggae, Ivory Coast). Gbediga, which translates to "The world is vast", showcases Beninese culture.
- Jah Sidi Boy (Reggae roots, Mali). independent artist, author-composer, interpreter and musician, Jah Sidy Boy is one of the bright new stars of Franco-African reggae.

1. Projection de court-métrages réalisés par des enfants africains pour montrer des réponses aux enjeux locaux :

UN ARBRE VAUT PLUS QUE SON BOIS (Guinée - 2014 - format HD - durée 19’11 - La déforestation liée aux habitations)
Synopsis : Chaque matin, Aguibou part couper du bois avant d’aller à l’école. Intrigué par la disparition progressive des ressources naturelles autour de son village, il décide de mener l’enquête.  Aidé de ses amis, il va faire de curieuses et intéressantes découvertes…
Enjeux : La déforestation est un problème majeur en Guinée. Ce film présente les causes et conséquences de cette dernière tout en proposant des solutions tel que le foyer amélioré, le choix des espèces à couper ou encore le retour de lois volontaristes.

SIDIKI, LE CHARRETIER DE COYAH (Guinée - 2014 - format HD - durée 15'39 - La traite des enfants)
Synopsis : Accablée par les tâches ménagères que lui confie sa famille d’accueil, la jeune Aïssatou ne peut pas aller à l’école. Sur le marché, elle rencontre Sidiki qui va lui présenter d’autres enfants confrontés au travail. Ensemble, ils retrouveront peut être le chemin de l’école...
Enjeux : Le travail lié aux enfants s’inscrit dans une multitude de contextes, rendant l’approche unique de répression obsolète. De nombreux paramètres doivent être pris en compte et ce film vise à présenter une partie de cette diversité. L’accompagnement par les pairs et les professionnels est également mis en avant au travers de ce film.

LES APPRENTIS (Guinée - 2014 - format HD – durée 16'35 - L'insertion professionnelle des jeunes)
Synopsis : Aboubacar est apprenti chez un menuisier. Pour payer sa formation, il donne à son tour des cours aux jeunes du quartier. Mais sans outils et sans vrais professeurs, les jeunes font peu de progrès. Sous l’impulsion de Mariame, ils décident de créer leur propre centre de formation.

Nature’s Rights and Human Rights: Building Legal, Economic and Social Solutions to Planetary Crisis
Limited Capacity filling up

The well-being of humans and nature are inextricably linked. Across the globe, we injure both people and ecosystems by treating the natural world as property to fuel incessant economic growth. These injuries have risen to the level of simultaneous violations, or “co-violations,” of human rights and nature’s rights. Many co-violations are fueled by our legal and economic systems, which legalize and even encourage environmental destruction for profit. This workshop will explore co-violation trends, especially with respect to mining and other extractive industries. It also highlights specific solutions, including recognition of the rights of nature and a robust climate change treaty. The workshop features the release of Earth Law Center’s comprehensive report on rights violations worldwide, “Fighting for Our Shared Future: Protecting Both Human Rights and Nature’s Rights.”

This session will be live streamed at placetob.org/live.

Rights for the Earth: towards new international standards
Limited Capacity full

[EN] "Rights for the Earth: towards new international standards"
-----
A growing convergence of movements in favour of a legal frame for protecting our planet are affecting legal doctrine. This multiplicity of approaches and legal proposals about Earth Laws or Earth Jurisprudence (Rights of Nature, human right of a healthy environment, future generations rights, crime of ecocide, etc.. ) are part of a new socio-ecosystem perspective based on the interdependence between man and nature : it recognizes that human beings are inalienable parts of nature and that their actions have consequences, not only on their environment but also on their own future. These approaches - which ideas and commitment are converging worldwide - are creating an historic expression of public will at supranational level to control the way of how norms are defined in the case of major damage to the environment. Together, they participate to a paradigm shift that shall nourish collective consciousness and governance models respectful of life on earth.

To clarify initiatives convergence towards international frames to protection of the planet, a conference will take on December 3rd at Place to B.
Experts will clarify the different concepts and emerging principles of EarthLaws. These proposals aim to raise the right to a healthy environment as a basic standard and to grant Rights to Nature. They provide relevant insights into the close relations between the fields of environmental law and human rights in order to assert the principle of interdependence binding nature and human beings and their responsibilities.
The object will be to present these legal angles and create a dialogue between different holders of proposals, instruments, declarations, court success and emerging initiatives.


  • The complementarity of these approaches have the potential, in their interpretation and implementation, of ending unlimited exploitation of natural resources which jeopardizes all future on earth.

  • They give rise to a paradigm shift by encouraging international environmental law to recognize rights to nature and the rights of future generations.

  • Finally, these initiatives contribute to an evolution of consciousness and human behavior by providing a transition to systems of governance that are guided by the general interest of the Living on Earth, recognizing that human is at the heart of a system of life beyond him, and that we must respect the laws, processes and boundaries in order to maintain the balance of the system.



This session will be live streamed at placetob.org/live.

[FR] "Des droits pour la Terre : vers de nouvelles normes internationales"

Convergence des initiatives : un droit international pour la Terre.
Un nouveau corpus juridique se développe actuellement à l’échelle de la planète autour du concept de Droit de la terre (earth law) dans une multiplicité d’approches et de propositions juridiques : Droit de la Terre, Droits de la Nature, Droits des générations futures, Droit de l’Homme à un environnement sain, crime d’écocide... Toutes ces propositions s’inscrivent dans une perspective socio-écosystémique novatrice, reconnaissant que les êtres humains sont des parties inaliénables de la nature et que leurs actions ont des conséquences, non seulement sur leur environnement, mais aussi sur leur propre devenir. Cette émergence et convergence de propositions est l’expression d’un momentum historique, qui, face à la destruction des conditions de vie sur Terre, prône une adaptation des normes internationales pour établir un cadre juridique destiné à la protection de la Terre, de ses habitants et à la prise en compte des générations futures.

Des experts clarifieront les différents concepts et principes émergeants et convergents du Droit de la Terre (Earth Law). Ces propositions visent à élever le droit à un environnement sain comme norme fondamentale et à octroyer des droits à la nature. Elles apportent un  éclairage pertinent sur les relations étroites qui lient les champs du droit de l’environnement et des droits de l’homme afin d’affirmer le principe d’interdépendance liant la nature et les êtres humains et les responsabilités qui leur incombent.
L’objet sera de présenter ces angles juridiques et susciter un dialogue entre les différents porteurs de propositions, instruments, déclarations, succès judiciaires et initiatives émergentes.


  • La complémentarité de ces approches présentent le potentiel dans leur interprétation et leur mise en œuvre de mettre un terme à une exploitation illimitée des ressources naturelles qui compromet l’avenir de tous sur terre.

  • Elles suscitent un changement de paradigme en encourageant le droit international de l’environnement à reconnaître des droits à la nature et des droits aux générations futures.
  • Enfin, ces initiatives contribuent à une évolution des consciences et des comportements humains, en proposant une transition vers des systèmes de gouvernance qui soient guidés par l’intérêt général du Vivant sur Terre, reconnaissant que l’homme se situe au coeur d’un système de vie qui le dépasse, et dont nous devons respecter les lois, les processus et les limites afin de maintenir l’équilibre de l’ensemble.

How to reconnect with our human nature?
What if we remember… how it was when we lived in harmony with nature? What if we were reconnected to the earth, the biodiversity, the seasons? How to recreate such an harmony? Is it possible?

What are the base principles that would allow us to rebalance our relationship with nature? Does reconnecting to nature necessarily imply giving up the advances of modern life? Would this not lead us into isolated communities, random tribes trying to be self sufficient? Or would be reconnect differently? What does the tree understand about my heart?

Tara Baswani [CONCERT]
Free admission, no need to register on Sched. Limited seating (250 persons).

Montreal based singer/songwriter Tara Baswani draws deep into her experiences growing up in India, and nomadic travels, to create her vividly textured sound-scapes as a storyteller.

Metaphorical lyrics, woven into art rock, soul and world music traditions and beds of cinematic arrangements define her innovative compositional trademark… setting the stage for the imagination to wander into her unique electro-organic universe, accompanied by her distinct voice, with it’s raw, sensuous and almost eerie quality.
As singer/composer for the Indian band, Mrigya, she has won the prestigious Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. As the lead singer/lyricist/co-composer for Cirque du Soleil’s show, Kooza, her music has been featured on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Night Show with Conan O’Brien.
Fresh off a seven-year stint with the Cirque du Soleil, touring all over North America, Japan and culminating in a month’s residency at the Royal Albert Hall in London, she has recently released her debut solo project, Quest: Origins, offering her ode to every woman’s journey in search of her identity, autonomy and empowerment.
Tracing Tara’s journey to find her own meaning in the world, Quest: Origins broaches subjects explored within a series of conversations and moments shared with women across the world, at different points in time and space, crystallized through deeply personal lyrics, art and video collaborations.
It’s first single, My Kind ,was released on International Women’s Day 2015. Directed by filmmaker Tim Georgeson, this protest song/art film was created in the hope of increasing awareness about the issue of sexual violence worldwide. The next single, Breakdown, has snagged a coveted premiere on AUX TV and introduces the artist’s collaboration with Toronto-based animation director, Virpi Kettu. The video’s imagery sets the tone for Tara’s interlaced aural/visual language and defines the artist’s leaning towards multidisciplinary language for performance.

[EN]

INVOKING THE SPIRIT OF CHANGE : HARNESSING THE POWER OF SPIRITUALITY, AND BROADENING THE ENGAGEMENT WITH FAITH BASED COMMUNITIES .

***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

No matter what you believe in, all faiths have a moral commitment to join forces and fight the global threat of climate change. So we need to find the common creative ground to build a Multi-Faith Climate Change Campaign re-defining humanity’s relationship with the planet through a unifying spiritual narrative that can be embraced and actioned by all people who have faith in shaping a better world.


[FR]
INVOQUER L’ESPRIT DU CHANGEMENT : FAIRE APPEL AU POUVOIR DE LA SPIRITUALITÉ POUR RENFORCER LA MOBILISATION AUTOUR DU CLIMAT, AVEC L’AIDE DES COMMUNAUTÉS CONFESSIONNELLES

Quel que soit leur objet, toutes les fois ont le devoir moral de joindre leurs forces à la lutte globale contre le dérèglement climatique.
Le but de cette thématique : trouver les fondations communes d’une campagne universelle et transconfessionnelle qui redéfinirait la relation de l’humanité avec la planète, en proposant un récit qui permette d’emporter l’adhésion et l’engagement de tous les individus qui croient à la construction d’un monde meilleur.

Economic models have largely been the key organist principle around which societies are built. What is it about our current model that has locked us into a course which appears to be disastrous for both human happiness and planetary well being? Is it possible to transition peacefully and what would that look like? Or, must we end in chaotic revolution to force change?

Laudato Si by the Pope, declaration by the Dalaï Lama, Why do I care Summit and so many religious energies are converging for COP21 in Paris that we have to ask some fundamental questions about the way religion and spiritualities can help transmit the climate challenge to a broader audience.

Might not the climate crisis be partially caused by a lack of spirituality in humanity? What is it in religions that could help us form a deep link with nature and the planet and help us recognize our roles as stewards of our natural capital and move us away from exploitation and destruction? What role does worship play in climate change? What does spirituality tell us of our duty to nature?

What if showing solutions, telling a story that feels good, was the best way to solve the ecological, economic and social crises that our countries go through?

#4 - Empathy in Action {2 DAYS: Dec.7th + Dec.8th}

[EN]

EMPATHY IN ACTION : ESTABLISHING A MOTIVATING EMPATHY BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH TO BUILD MORE EFFECTIVE COLLECTIVE ACTION

***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

Is choosing to do nothing about climate change really the political statement you want to make to the world? We need to now drive mass-participation in the climate change movement , bringing it in from the fringes of people’s lives (the peripheral)

to the heart of their everyday lives – and making it clear that doing nothing is not an option.
This is about the responsibilities of citizenship- not just of our own cities/ countries/ cultures – but a shared global commitment/ empathy.

We also need to bring in those people on the fringes of our societies (particularly the Global North) to the centre of our movement – reach out to the ‘peripherique’ of Paris – esp. as these communities contain people most closely linked to the frontlines of climate change.

[FR]

EMPATHIE ET ACTION COLLECTIVE : RESTAURER L’EMPATHIE ENTRE NORD ET SUD POUR RENDRE L’ACTION COLLECTIVE PLUS EFFICACE.

Fait-on vraiment le choix de ne rien faire contre le dérèglement climatique ?
Pour provoquer une participation de masse au mouvement climatique, nous devons replacer le dérèglement climatique au cœur du quotidien des gens. Comment ? En démontrant de manière univoque que ne rien faire n’est tout simplement pas une option. En montrant qu’il est de notre responsabilité collective de citoyens de la planète, et non pas uniquement de celle de nos communes, pays ou autres instances, d’agir dans ce sens. En promouvant un engagement et un devoir d’empathie partagés. Cette thématique vise également à faire de la place, au sein de notre mouvement, à ces populations qui, en marge de nos sociétés, sont aux premières loges du dérèglement climatique (notamment les populations du Grand Nord).

CLIMAT: Le théâtre des négociations [MOVIE]
Limited Capacity seats available

"CLIMATE: The Negotiation Theatre" is a documentary by David Bornstein which shows his creation “Make it Work”, produced by Sciences Po (SPEAP) and Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers in May 2015. Come and join some member of the film crew.

Synopsis:
For the last 20 years, all United Nations conferences (COP) on climate have failed. A few months before the 21st conference of this type, which will be held in Paris in december 2015, two hundred students from five continents met in the Nanterre-Amandiers Theatre to re-think this negotiation and to re-invent its rules during a full-scale simulation.

To devise their experience, the students were coached by Laurence Tubiana, special representative of France for COP21, by the philosopher Bruno Latour, and by the stage director Philippe Quesne. How to make the COP more efficient? How to limit the global warming to 2 degrees? Maybe we need to change our political representations? On the stage of Amandiers, it was not longer the States only, but the Cities, the Oceans, the Atmosphere or the Indigenous Populations that are negotiating, modifying geopolitical equilibrium, and the possible visions of the future.

They gave themselves three days to negotiate, and their rally cry is “Make it work!”. Will they come to an agreement?

The Negotiation Theatre is telling the story of an unusual experiment mixing science, philosophy, arts and politics. To this steaming manifesto of global citizenship and cry of today's youth, world leaders are in the obligation to listen.

Most climate talk is doom and gloom, but one should never underestimate the power of positivity to spark people into action. Don’t we all want better lives? Cleaner, safer cities? Healthier food? Good communities? At COP21 we’re going to share stories, personal experiences and keynotes from the people who believe smiles, optimism and fun can drive great change. And this time you’re in change, if you like what you hear all you need to do is smile and the presentation goes on hence our mantra: "More smiles, more mikes". Smiles are contagious, start today. The Smileathon are brought to you by the European sustainability communication group Do Not Smile and their army of smilers.

Format:
We invite 15 speakers to do a talk on "Sustainability makes me smile". They might present funny campaigns, be stand up comedians or speakers with a spiritually, philosophically positive message concerning sustainability that makes you smile. All of the speakers have 5 minutes, but if a majority of the audience lifts a smile placard, it’s 3 minutes more mike time "More smiles, more mikes"!

This session will be live streamed at placetob.org/live.

A CHILDREN’S WORLD : SECURING THE FUTURE BY SIMPLIFYING THE PROBLEMS WE NEED TO SOLVE

***Be aware that this is a two-days workshop***

What sort of world will our children inherit? And why are we so determined to obliterate all the natural wonders that they perceive in it?

Perhaps we need to re-learn that sense of wonder they have to re-appreciate what we are losing and galvanise us into action.

Then we need to follow their lead in simple answers to complex problems by de-cluttering the climate change debate and imaginatively answering the tasks ahead of us.

[FR]

LE MONDE DE NOS ENFANTS : VULGARISER LA COMPLEXITÉ DES ENJEUX POUR MIEUX PROTÉGER NOTRE AVENIR.

Quel monde laisserons-nous à nos enfants ? Pourquoi cette détermination à oblitérer toutes les merveilles naturelles que leur esprit d’enfant leur permet de percevoir ? Peut-être avons-nous besoin de réapprendre ce sens de l’émerveillement que seuls les enfants sont capables de montrer, pour de nouveau apprécier ce que nous sommes en train de perdre et déclencher ainsi notre passage à l’action. Nous vous proposons de suivre l’exemple de nos enfants, en décloisonnant le débat autour du dérèglement climatique et en faisant preuve d’imagination pour répondre aux tâches qui nous attendent, afin d’opposer des réponses simples à des problèmes complexes.

How to change everyone to change everything?
How to individually choose behavior that matters? Our choices are shaped by various facts and our beliefs, biases and preferences, create a psychological context from which we need to escape to tackle climate change. How to widen the social reality of climate change and gather everyone to change everything?

Are we trapped in our silos, and if so, how do we first recognize the limitations and then go beyond them? What is it in societies that produce actions which have harmful results? Are we indeed deceiving ourselves about our ideas of personal freedom and will over our actions? How and where do we even begin to break the chains of peer induced behavior?

Storytelling & Ecology: A Collective Rite of Passage?
Limited Capacity seats available

We’re three coworkers at Place To B. And it’s been amazing to meet so many involved and inspiring people in one place. But what’s more enthralling is: How did all of you get to act in the first place? What was the “click”?

It seems to us that there’s a middle point between the moment we said “I am conscious of climate change” and “I am acting to fight it.” And that is: a meta-story. Something we try to embed ourselves into, because it gives us two things. Tools to recast our worldview. Words to express it.

The tools of storytelling may help us transition from awareness to action. It’s interesting to explore the lever of rites of passage, symbols, orality, myths, and immersive experiences.

Because, somehow, myths and the like help us reach and perceive a level of complexity that the rational discourse can’t convey.

The exciting endeavor ahead of us, and the purpose of this workshop, is to explore what we have in common in our stories, and is there some patterns?

The workshop will take us through a 3-hour conversation about what made the difference for us, what made it clicked. Drawing from our very personal experiences, we’ll try to imagine rites of passage for a larger audience.


Three moments

1. First hour: TELLING
What is your story? What was your entry point into ecology?

2. Second hour: FRAMING
Here are some ideas to start identifying the components of a meta-story. Other ideas welcome!
    •    Investing the Future. From an anxious present to forecasting a desirable future.
    •    Looking at Mythology. What can rituals of initiation and stories like the hero’s journey teach us about transformation?
    •    I and We. How do we convert a transcendantal narrative into a story that binds together my own interior transformation and the rest of the community?

3. Third hour: MAKING
Here, we’re hopeful to apply Place to B maker’s ethos.
    •    Drafting creative narratives. Forming small groups to co-write mottos, call-to-actions, targeted messages with a symbolic magnitude.
——
Who we are - three COPilots who met here!

Eloi Saint Bris is a writer & artist with an expertise in narratives of collective transformation and the place of the self in these moments. He wrote a thesis on “The I and the We” and has since then developed immersive art experiences.

Eve Demange is a French novelist and web copywriter specialized in storytelling for the web. She’s writing a series for Place to B blog on "storytelling and ecology," trying to understand how we can talk about the future in a desirable way. Her latest work is an anticipation novel taking place in 2050.

Summing up what we have learnt about system change in the past two weeks, the value and challenges of "dreaming in public", and taking forward the best communication ideas, strategies and common elements to shift the mainstream perception of what is possible. For this final day we will run an open door workshop for any one who wants to return and develop the new communication ideas and narratives about climate and system change.

UNE VIE NOUVELLE REVISITÉE

Au cours de cette dernière journée, nous ferons la synthèse de ce que nous aurons appris, au cours des deux semaines, sur le changement que nous devons enclencher, la valeur et les défis liés à la concrétisation de cette utopie collective. Ce travail nous permettra de dégager les éléments, idées et stratégies que nous devrons porter par la suite, afin d’agir sur la perception globale de ce qu’il nous est possible de faire.

How to act on time?
On this Friday we will feel the emergency to find an international agreement… This emergency is calling other questions : how to develop a resilient economy and society on time? What is time and how to develop a long term vision? Shall we use backcasting approaches?

If we are to act collective on time, how and where do we begin?  Is an increase in the complexity of the problem a way to begin?  Should we be thinking about systems rather than isolated solutions?  What is the role of NGO’s, non-profits, and private foundations?  Are they perhaps more a part of the problem than the solution by  focusing too narrowly on targeted problems?  What would be the result if we instead focused upon what we want over what we don’t want?

This day is dedicated to kids. We want to work with them and educate them in a very innovative way (games, workshops, movies, etc.).

The Great Clamour for Climate

[FR[

La Grande Clameur pour le climat a été conçue pour exprimer de manière sonore et sensible les attentes, la vigilance et l’engagement des citoyens dans la lutte contre le dérèglement climatique pendant toute la durée de la COP21. http://thegreatclamor.org/

La grande clameur a été initiée par Chantal Latour (musicienne) Jean Pierre Seyvos (compositeur), Bruno Latour (philosophe) et Jean Marie Leau (compositeur, chef de choeur)

Nous sommes ou serons tous impactés par le changement climatique, mais certains le sont plus vite que d’autres, et certains peuples le sont particulièrement dés maintenant.

Il y a urgence à se mobiliser, à se réveiller tous, citoyens, décideurs ou politiques. C’est pourquoi nous proposons cette performance : «Le son des terriens ».

[EN]

The Great Clamour for Climate is designed to express sound and sensible manner expectations, vigilance and commitment of citizens in the fight against climate change throughout COP21. http://thegreatclamor.org/

The great clamour was initiated by Chantal Latour (musician) Jean Pierre Seyvos (composer), Bruno Latour (philosopher) and Jean Marie Leau (composer, choirmaster)

We will all be affected by climate change, some of us even more faster than others, and some people are affected particularly now.

It is urgent to mobilize, to wake everyone, citizens, or political decision makers. That's why we offer this performance: "The sound of the land".

This is the thematic of the day, working as a fil-rouge for each day. This is not an event that you can register.

This is not the end

We want the program of this day to be really open, reflecting the progress of the negotiations, of what we will have learnt at Place to B, of what we will have created…

Ce n'est que le début
La dernière journée à Place to B sera l’occasion d’organiser des sessions de clôture, de décider ensemble de comment nous pouvons agir pour transformer durablement la société, pour passer d’une vision partagée à une autre, d’un modèle à un autre ... en somme, nous déciderons de ce qui doit se passer maintenant !
