A Day of Inspiring Workshops in Saint-Etienne on 19 September 2023

In an economically fragile world, how can we change usage and take action for the living?

As part of the France Design Week national event, running from 14 to 28 September, the c3d innovation community, made up of the Cité du Design, CIRIDD, Designers+ and Pôle-Ecoconception, are offering a day of workshops culminating in an inspiring conference on 19 September 2023.

The theme of France Design Week 2023 is “Vivant, vivants”. We’ve seized on this proposal by bringing it closer to the missions of our innovation community. Our observation? The interdependence between biodiversity and business activities is strong, as demonstrated by COP15 in December 2022.

In this relationship, how can we harmonize design projects with the challenges of preserving the living world? How can we question interdependencies and re-question uses? Rethink economic models and create desirable futures.

To nurture this reflection, we are offering practical workshops throughout the day, where business leaders, project managers, designers and conceptual thinkers will be encouraged to question, understand, experiment and model, and then act to implement solutions that preserve biodiversity and human’s place in this system.

At the end of these workshops, we propose an inspiring conference with Maurice Rebex, adventurer and photographer, who invites us to rethink our attitude to the world, drawing on his many travels and encounters, notably with the Lakota Sioux. With his conference “Tous Reliés” and his book “L’esprit ensauvagé”, he offers us a panorama of wide-ranging reflections, a promise of reconciliation with our deepest nature. In order to bequeath a viable planet to future generations, he proposes a path that invites us to adopt this other way of being in the world, by inspiring our spirit with the thinking of primitive peoples.
