PROGRAMME 7 September 2021

TV set for a series of special live broadcasts from IUCN and Marseille

In the middle of the IUCN week, the Biomim'expo TV set was set up near the old port, hosted by Rougerie+Tangram, a major architectural firm with expertise in biomimicry and bio-inspired approaches.

Thank you to our hosts for this day of broadcasts and debates. Thank you to our partners who have associated themselves with and financially supported the large biomimicry fresco at the heart of the IUCN World Congress and who have made this stopover in Marseille possible.

THANK YOU to your wonderful speakers ... , scouts, adventurers, scientists, entrepreneurs, passionate about biodiversity and what the world can teach us, again and again.

Tray #1 - 9.30am - 10.45am

[ BIODIVERSITY AT THE HEART OF ORGANISATIONAL ISSUES. How and why are biodiversity issues and strategic and economic issues intimately linked? What can bio-inspiration bring in terms of innovation capacity to reconnect the objectives of performance, CSR and preservation of our planet's natural capital?
