Description de l'événement

Description

Held by the French Institute of Finland once again, the second Nuit des Idées (Night of Ideas) in Finland will be taking place on the 25th of January 2018 in Helsinki. The programme of the Nuit des Idées in Helsinki will this year also offer a circuit composed of four distinct events, held within the Institute or in neighboring partner locations in the heart of the city, revolving around this year’s theme: “L’imagination au pouvoir / Power to the imagination”. This programme will offer documentary film screenings, artistic performances, and panel discussion that will count with the participation of French and Finnish artists, experts and personalities.

What can local powers do in terms of ecological transition ? Which sustainable solutions can a municipality imagine to reduce its ecological footprint ? Marie-Monique Robin's documentary "Qu'est-ce qu'on attend" (What are we waiting for ?) offers answers to these questions by showing the example of Ungersheim, a 2200 inhabitant town in Alsace which has been multiplying initiatives in terms of food, energy, transports, work, money, accommodation and education, with the aim to increase its food and energy autonomy. The screening of the documentary will be followed by a panel discussion involving French and Finnish elected officials, who will be able to showcase the measures that have been implemented in their respective municipalities.
