From local to planetary (summary)

The FieldTrip / Worskhop C4R in Bucharest was continued by the roundtable discussion « From local to planetary : changing the way of life » where participated Gilles Clément, Constantin Petcou, Doina Petrescu, Stefan Pop, the team and a large public.

The introduction by Raluca Voinea noticed the importance of this kind of open discussion as part of the C4R project. Doina Petrescu and Constantin Petcou presented the evolution of a driven-citizens ecological transition strategy (R-Urban) in a global environnemental context which is quickly deteriorating (summaries of the GIEC report were published the previous day). Gilles Clément demonstrated the importance of water for organisms at different scales, as well as the cultural stereotypes that must be overcome by professionals who want to fight against an excessive anthropization of the planet. A discussion with the audience allowed us to explore some ways of thinking grounded in the local context.

Many thanks to the team for this perfect planning and to all the participants (despite the Covid and the heatwave!) !
