Over the past 100 years, the IPGP has forged its place as a leading institution in Earth and planetary sciences, remaining true to its founding principles, namely the indefectible link between its three missions of observation, research and training. This day of exchanges was organised around three of tomorrow’s scientific and societal challenges: From natural telluric risks to global risks, Earth health, human health, From mineral to living organisms.

For each of these themes, scientists from the IPGP and Université Paris Cité, as well as from national and international institutions, presented the latest advances and knowledge in their disciplines in the Grand Amphithéâtre of the MNHN, and exchanged ideas to offer a multidisciplinary vision of these issues.

The day’s presentations and debates, hosted by journalists from the scientific magazine Epsiloon, can be viewed on the dedicated playlist on the IPGP’s YouTube channel:

  • Introduction by Olivier Peyret (Chairman of the IPGP Board of Directors) and session “Des risques naturels telluriques aux risques globaux” with Soraya Boudia (Prof UPCité), Fidel Costa (Prof UPCité/IPGP), Vincent Lesur (Physicist IPGP), Léonard Seydoux (Prof UPCité/IPGP) and moderated by Vincent Nouyrigat (journalist at Epsiloon)
  • “Santé de la Terre, santé des hommes” session with Jérôme Gaillardet (Prof IPGP), Rémi Slama (DR INSERM, head of the Institut thématique de santé publique) and moderated by Fiorenza Gracci (Epsiloon at journalist)
