Cultural Conférence : ScienceSandwich CREA Mont-Blanc Chamonix-Mont-Blanc


On Thursday 14 December 2023 from 12:30:00 in 13:30:00
Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (74400)

For the next #ScienceSandwich, we invite you to discover the experimental approach adopted by Lac Vert, the Bossons glacier and Mont Blanc. Inspired by the Cross Diagnostic carried out with the Mamus Kogis in the Vercors, how can our communities capture the messages transmitted by the natural elements of these emblematic places in our valley?

In 2021, Aurélie Debusschère , a researcher in Human and Social Sciences at Grenoble Alpes University, explored new ways of understanding natural spaces in a rapidly changing alpine environment. She was accompanied by Patricia and Isaline Wyssenbach, mother and daughter, both originally from the agro-pastoral world of the Valais. They run a micro-farm refuge and offer trekking tours with their animals through the Valais countryside, a genuine means of transmitting knowledge and fostering the development of the human-animal bond. Through their activities, they maintain a particularly sensitive relationship with their environment, and have the ability to read the territory accurately and deeply.

This meeting is an opportunity to understand how new tools, such as sensitive cartography fed by landscape observations, feelings or sound recordings, enable us to enter into a relationship with natural sites that goes beyond environmental aspects. These approaches could help open up new perspectives for tourism in our territories.
