In order to stop biodiversity loss, it is primordial to be willing to make collective and coordinated efforts at the local, national, and international scales.

Challenges of the Biodiversity themed fortnight

Our already weakened ecosystems are still being deteriorated. Yet, our survival depends on their protection. Biodiversity answers mankind's primary needs, allows it to develop its agricultural and scientific activites while protecting it from envrionmental risks.

Carrying out this biodiversity restoration work is crucial and needs to go hand-in-hand with preservation to slow down the effects that we observe around the world regarding our quality of life. In order to stop biodiversity loss, it is primordial to be willing to make collective and coordinated efforts at the local, national, and international scales.

Event programming on the France Pavilion

Lightspeed Inspiration Day : Darker night, brighter future - October 9th, 2021

Light serves as the thematic guideline for the France Pavilion as it is the central element of its architecture and programming. Light is a rich concept: being both a physical phenomenon that allows visual perception and a unit that measures speed and time, light is also the symbol of knowledge and ideas. 

The France Pavilion and the French office for biodiversity invite visitors to reflect on the dark side of light by devoting a specific day to light pollution. This type of pollution is defined by the presence of artificial lighting, which disturbs fauna, flora, and humans, also preventing the observation of night skies. The France Pavilions aims at raising awareness on this issue and to showcase initiatives and technologies that contribute to a future where the wonders of the night skies can be seen again.
