LUMA Days 4 joined forces with the 1st edition of Agir pour le Vivant (Actions for Sustainable Living) Festival

LUMA Days joined forces with Agir pour le Vivant as part of the Festival’s lunch-dialogues which took place between 24th and 30th of August in the mythical Hotel Nord Pinus in Arles. On this occasion, the Festival guests were invited to take part in a series of interviews around the issues of transition, the crisis of our imaginations, the new geography and the subject of responsibility.

In this interview, Lionel Bordeaux, creative activist and former Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Climate Change Conference 21, questions the crisis of imagination and the roles that communicators, political leaders and artists can play in the construction of new narratives.

Lionel Bordeaux has spent 20 years in the world of political administration and French politics as Advisor in Communications (in the Prime Minister’s office, in the Ministry for Towns, and at the Town Hall of Paris). Later he was Vice-General Secretary in charge of communication and partnerships for the COP21 climate event. Since then, the environment has become the central topic of his professional activity and he has, for example, helped activists defend the world’s great natural areas (the Australian coral reefs, the Wood Buffalo National Park in Canada, etc.). At the present time he is leading a project to manufacture a football without using either plastic or animal leather in order to produce the ball that will be used in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
