Night of Ideas 2019

Published by Ocean Generation \ March 14, 2019 4:23 pm

Launched by the Institut français in 2016, the Night of Ideas is a project staged simultaneously in Paris, London and worldwide. For the January 2019 edition, the Institut français du Royaume-Uni put together a thought-provoking programme of debates, performances and screenings exploring the latest ideas behind issues central to our times.

The evening addressed two of our society’s most pressing issues: Europe and the environment.

Our founder, Daisy Kendrick, was invited to Chair the ‘Inhabiting the Earth : The New Generation’ panel. Speaking alongside Dominik Bari (Filmmaker Oymyakon), Alice Guillaume (Cambridge Zero Carbon Society) and Cyril Dion (Environmental activist and filmmaker Tomorrow, After Tomorrow). With live drawing by Chris Riddell (Illustrator and cartoonist for The Observer).

The hour long debate centred around how can we imagine a better tomorrow for our planet, and for the generation who will inhabit it? The documentary makers discussed how we can raise awareness on environmental issues through the power of narrative. Alice spoke to the younger audience members about starting your own activism campaigns and her journey at Cambridge University to stop fracking. Daisy engaged the audience in the open debate on the possibilities for a brighter future where citizen voices and perspectives matter to help save our planet.
