Global Challenges of Sustainable Growth: Energy, Food, Natural Resources

Cité des sciences et de l’industrie, Paris
December 2013 at 2.00pm

In this new century, the world economy is plural entropy. The consequences of the explosion of the financial “pressure cooker” in 2008 have not yet finished producing their effects. First, on the financial front, since it is the States, therefore the taxpayers, who have to absorb the debts of banks and traders, whence the economic slowdown, the rising unemployment and job insecurity. Inequality is widening in the North as in the South. The green growth that many people once have called for became yellow. In Warsaw, governments from the world could not reach an agreement on the measures to curb global warming. Wars multiply in the South while in the North will firms bend on themselves?

Yet the world has never been so full of scientific, technical, philosophical and political ideas, knowledge and know-how. So how to build the foundations of a real sustainable growth?
