A national theme: climate change

For this 31st edition, the Science Fair offers a widely discussed theme: "Climate change, mitigation and adaptation". A new approach crossing disciplines and which avoids falling into "technological solutionism" or "collapsology".

Around this theme, researchers and citizens will be invited to reflect on our environmental impact but also on the solutions, ecological inequality or even the story that we can tell of this growing phenomenon.
