CIRED and BRGM will share the Visions of a low carbon society produced by the R&Dialogue project for France on Sunday, July 5th, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm in Paris. Discussions will be followed by a welcome cocktail for science, technology and society researchers attending the Our common future conference.

Using a non-violent communication approach provided by University of Roma and applied simultaneously in 10 European countries, between July 2014 and February 2015 the French R&Dialogue team has organized groups of dialogue on key aspects of the energy transition : i. wind power : social acceptance and difficulties ; ii. oil and dependence ; iii. energy transition and European construction ; iv. territorial organization of the energy transition. This French national dialogue culminated in a plenary meeting of the French national council held at CIRED in spring 2015. That event was the opportunity for a larger group of actors to discuss and amend the Visions of a Low Carbon Society for France.

After sharing the results of our dialogue research-action, a cocktail and poster presentation will welcome participants to the Common future Paris conference. The event venue is the top of the Zamansky tower, in UPMC where the part of the Our Common Future conference will take place. Located near the banks of the Seine river and in the Quartier Latin, this is the place to be in Paris on a Sunday evening in July.
