Sorry for the past. It is now time to largely take care of the future of our children.
My concern, which sometimes keeps me awake at night, is that we, humans, are threatening the very inhabitability of the only inhabitable planet in the solar system
I do not think that there are environmental concerns specific to my field.They are in common with all fields in biological, chemical and biomedical sciences, but here is clearly (…)
Although the Anthropocene and climate change are widely known as scientific issues, they are also significant cultural problems. In literary criticism and ecocriticism, the main (…)
Expert in biodiversity, changing towards a sustainable way of life since 30 years, convinced that sustainable living brings happiness and happy to share experiences.
My main concerns about climate change in my researches are the melt of the Greenland ice sheet and the associate sea-level rise. I reduce my carbon footprint in many ways.
We Change For Life is a project initiated by three scientists,
biologists or climatologist, who wish to raise public awareness about
the emergency to take action to ensure the livability of our planet.
Main concerns: Natural habitats, especially primary forests which sustain the highest biodiversity are disappearing at an alarming rate.
Actions: At professional level, to support (…)

Nature is a common good and few people value it more than evolutionary biologists like myself. But nature is increasingly falling victim to the “tragedy of the commons”.
Whatever I have to buy, I wonder what impact it has on the planet. More responsible alternatives almost systematically exist
Travelling by bicycle, buying products in cooperative supermarkets, marching for climate… All this is a good thing but…
Global threats require global, political actions. Individual actions are also important to support political initiatives. Adapting to change provides freedom, joy and awareness.
Besides an ecological problem, I see climate change also as a (gigantic) social question.
There is enormous power in exemplarity; and there is psychological comfort in coherence.
In the context of the management of the Soignes forest (Brussels), adoption of measures to adapt to climate change and measures to better preserve biodiversity.
Climate action not only need to be social but green too
My main concern is on climate change for its impacts on sea level rise as well as on extreme events. It is a global issue in the sense that countries with the highest CO2 emissions (…)
