Oceans, Antarctica, nature and waste observation
Do you have to go all the way to Antarctica to contemplate nature without waste? A scientist and a photographer discuss the issue together.
18h30 – 19h15: Towards a holistic view of marine plastic pollution, how to objectify data to take action?
Yannick LERAT – Scientific Director of The SeaCleaners
A review of scientific knowledge available on marine plastic pollution and its relationship to global plastic pollution.
Particular attention will be given to quantitative data, their precision and significance. The modelling in progress will be discussed with the aim of providing a global vision of impacts and trends. In terms of possible actions, the concrete example of The SeaCleaners association’s Manta project will be presented.
19h15 – 20h00: Discovery of Antarctica – from the Ross Sea to the Antarctic Peninsula
François SIDOT (Ch180) – Photographer
Let’s discover Antarctica through the images and film of photographer François Sidot. This nature lover wants to share his approach through a conference featuring landscapes with their improbable lights as well as animals that have been able to adapt to the most extreme living conditions. The importance of the subject pushed our photographer to leave a trace of his life in these regions through a book.
Conference followed by a signing session of the new book “Antarctica 120°”.
