French gardens are precious

White City

A recent french study from IPSOS has reported that french people pay more and more attention to their natural environment.
93,5 % of French citizens consider gardens, trees and flowers being one of the most import link to get a well balanced way of life.

This lack of green areas is pointing out a real problem according to urban living. Indeed, we are facing, in one month, new elections (French region) and politics should have a focus on this study.

Companies should also paid attention to this lack of green spaces. 40 % of workers think that green would definitely help them to feel better at work!

Bombardement Sonore

Few hours left before the birth of 2010. Time for me to write the last original post of the year.
To get inspiration, I asked my brother (who is a professional DJ) to compose a piece of music which he called ” bombardement sonore”.

(If you like his music, be a fan of him on facebook and follow him on twitter)

Well, when I listened to it for the first time, I had the same felling that being alone in a forest, or in front of a huge breaking shore break! Nature is so powerful!

Well, it also makes me think that for almost 50 years we have succeeded in changing Nature against its will,  but the day that we will have to face nature riots, obviously, human won’t be able to change anything!

2009 shows us that politics are still not ready to change, but I think people are.
Communities are building  networks to show how we are destroying our futur.
Communitites are creating platefroms to learn and teach how to live greener and more conscious of social matters.

2010 will be the year of people, communities and life changes.

Tool: the web!

Spread the word that people are ready to hold the flag, to face their responsabilities.
Politics listen the noise of our outdoors:  they ask for action NOW, not for politricks…

COP15 on the web: which web resources am I using?

United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009

What are my favorite web resources I use to follow United Nations Climate Change Conferences in Copenhagen?
Actually, I am using 2 resources :

  • the dedicated twitter and the associated twitter search on #COP15 .
  • TckTckTck, a consortium of 188 faith groups (NGO, citizens and public learders).  The site also features coverage of the conference in live streaming video.

I have also been using sometime others resources like the facebook fan page and of course, the official web site.

Otherwise, before  conferences strated,  I decided to follow  elyseecop15 which is Nicolas Sarkozy’s twitter account for cop15. Humm, nothing has been published on it.  Fake or real? (sorry folks it is in french).

Looking forward to reading, watching and listening to results.

Brève: de l’ADEME au secrétariat de l’écologie

Le 15 Janvier NKM passait du MEEDDAT à l’économie numérique. C’est d’ailleurs le sujet de mon dernier article. J’avais posé la question si il y aurait oui ou non une ou un remplaçant au poste  laissé vacant par NKM.
C’est désormais chose faite. La présidente de L’ADEME, Chantal Jouanno se retrouve parachutée au secrétariat de l’écologie.
