Open campus on climate and biodiversity

Environmental thinking in movement through various cultures in the world, by the creation of sino-european campuses.

An initiative of International campus towards an ecological civilization

Overview of the project

The “International Campus for an Ecological civilisation” is developing as a network on the Chinese and European level in the first place. It is an educational programme, which intends to be global, multi-polar, nomadic, collaborative, and that relies on the willingness of civil society actors, in their diversity: scientists, teachers, practitioners, NGOs, businesses, associations, foundations, in order to act together to support an ecological civilisation.

It is about:

  • Participating actively for a better understanding of global civilisation issues, through a dialogue between cultures.
  • Fostering scientific and social cooperation at the highest efficiency level for the fight against climate change and its negative effects.
  • Innovating by investing in integrated and trans-disciplinary ecosystems.
  • Promoting climatic justice within environmental governance.
  •  Creating a citizen expertise that is responsible.

Creating open campuses focused on climate and biodiversity (formations initiale et continue, séminaires, colloques).
