COAL highlight on the French Pavilion of the IUCN World Conservation Congress – VIVANT season

In the French Pavilion, artists committed to ecology, nominated and awarded the COAL Art and Ecology Prize, present their projects as ways to reweave our sensitivity to life, to rethink our relationship with the environment, to be attentive to other forms of life, to renew our images and our collective imaginations, to invent new paradigms and other ways of being in the world All these artists testify, imagine, experiment and work for a world more respectful of the living and the ecological balance. An event in partnership with the Museum of Hunting and Nature and the French Office of Biodiversity with the intervention of Pierre Dubreuil, Director General of the OFB or his representative.
