Les calanques industrielles de Marseille et leurs pollutions ; une histoire au présent ; pollution of Marseille's industrial calanques ; the impact of the past on the present

On s'y baigne, on vient y déguster les poissons et les crustacés de la Méditerranée, on y pratique la randonnée, l'escalade, la plongée ou la plaisance et on aimerait parfois y posséder un cabanon pour pouvoir profiter pleinement de la douceur des nuits d'été : à n'en pas douter, les calanques font rêver... Au-delà de la carte postale, ce site a une histoire complexe qui pèse sur son présent et son avenir. Considéré comme un « bout du monde » aux marges d'une cité portuaire de dimension mondiale avant de devenir, en 2012, la porte d'entrée d'un parc national destiné à accueillir des milliers de touristes, cet espace a longtemps été un lieu de relégation des industries les plus polluantes. C'est cette histoire méconnue, dont l'héritage est aujourd'hui si lourd à porter, que nous avons choisi d'évoquer à travers une approche résolument pluri-disciplinaire, associant étroitement sciences sociales et sciences de la nature, pour tendre vers une vision globale, base d'une réflexion sur la gestion des sites pollués sur le littoral Méditerranéen.

There is scarcely any construction principle that can boast an equally extensive array of positive effects than the greening of the exterior and interior building envelope.
Green, Greener, Greenest: Facades, Roofs, Indoors offers a comprehensive survey of a range of façade, roof and interior greenings. Here, it is plants that are the main building material: neatly arranged, they complement minimalist high-rise architecture; wildly rampant, they serve as an extravagant element of interior design; and through creative composition, they come to form a sophisticated work of art. The cross-disciplinary juxtaposition of technological progress and creative design is never far from view.
Whether in an urban setting or part of a natural landscape, the projects showcased in this volume prove that there is still limitless creative potential in architectural greening, posing new and exciting challenges for designers and landscape architects alike.

This book has been published by Allenvi (French National Alliance for Environmental Research) to coincide with the 22nd Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP22) in Marrakesh. It is the outcome of work by academic researchers on both sides of the Mediterranean and provides a remarkable scientific review of the mechanisms of climate change and its impacts on the environment, the economy, health and Mediterranean societies. It will also be valuable in developing responses that draw on "scientific evidence" to address the issues of adaptation, resource conservation, solutions and risk prevention. Reflecting the full complexity of the Mediterranean environment, the book is a major scientific contribution to the climate issue, where various scientific considerations converge to break down the boundaries between disciplines.

Nature's ultimatum : the stakes and prospects of the united states' urgent return to the climate battle
- 14 Janvier 2022
In this book, Michel Innocent Peya focuses on "climate finance" and the withdrawal and return of the world's leading power, the United States, in the battle against climate change, by assessing its real financial impact in order to fight collectively against the ultimatum given by nature. The States are determined to take up the challenge and assume their responsibilities, as the Biden administration has done, in order to wage the "people's battle" against global warming and the perils that it may cause in the medium term. A vibrant appeal is launched to all the world's decision-makers as well as to state and non-state actors. As the years go by, the planet is experiencing rising temperatures and precipitation is constantly increasing. These are the results of a multiform pollution that threatens the existence of nations. Our beautiful nature is being devastated by greenhouse gas emissions and ever-increasing waste. The few world powers, those that can be qualified as major polluters, are few in number but threaten the balance of our system to the detriment of collective well-being. What will become of our planet, our environment, if the community of polluters continues to refuse to take its responsibilities?
Provides an introduction to the ethics of climate change. This book considers a climate science and moral philosophy, ultimately finding a way into the many possible positions associated with climate change. It is also a call for doing something about the moral demands placed on both governments and individuals by the fact of climate change.

A town in the mining basin of France's Pas-de-Calais department, Loos-en- Gohelle has experienced a metamorphosis. A casualty of the cessation of coal mining, Loos has become a pilot town for sustainable development. Its story revolves around the councillors, the inhabitants, the companies and the associations that have brought to fruition hundreds of initiatives and participative projects which today are weaving the very fabric of a global ecological transition in the area.
Over this last 30 years, one would have had to be something of a visionary to imagine that one day the mining basin would be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and that the spoil heaps would be havens of biodiversity, idéal for a Sunday-afternoon walk. The inhabitants of Loos-en-Gohelle, however, firmly believed in this.
Far from the picture of the self-sufficient village of died-in-the-wool ecologists, the journey of Loos-en-Gohelle shows that each town or area can find the resources to conduct an ecological-transition project equal to the current climatic challenge. Philippe Chibani-Jacquot is a journalist specialised in sustainable development, ecological transition and social and solidarity economy.

Urbanization is the one of the most evident forms of anthropization. With most of the world population living in cities, the need of thinking about a more sustainable urban lifestyle has become an imperative. This is why present and future generations of scholars, urban managers and policy makers should be prepared to work together to support the reduction of impacts generated by urban activities, while pursuing the goal of an equitable and sustainable well-being within the planetary boundaries. In this respect, the use of different methods and tools can support the implementation of roadmaps and policies. Besides that, different communication languages can be used to enhance the development of a shared reflective vision about the future of cities among citizens, as major actors of the urban life and its transformation.
This book provides an accessible overview of some key methods to deal holistically with the analysis of urban resources flows to readers with an interest in the academic or professional reference of the different approaches for studying urban metabolism.
