Year  2020

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 her reflections on the subject of the ecological transition, Sophie Swaton finds herself at the crossroads between two complementary disciplines: economics and philosophy. She describes a model in which the mechanisms of an economic policy must be rethought if they are to serve social justice while accompanying and facilitating the transition.

Sophie Swaton is a Philosopher and Economist and responsible for research at the Institute of Geography and Sustainability in the University of Lausanne where she teaches and coordinates the Master in the Principles and Practice of Sustainability. She also presides the Zoein Foundation which she created to support initiatives of solidarity in the ecological transition process, both in Switzerland and elsewhere.
