The spirit of the times is no longer one of unfettered enjoyment. No more big orgiastic food, welcome to the moderation of desires. Towards joyful asceticism? Our planet is tottering: a new balance must be found. On the one hand, the extremist pleasure-seekers, on the other, the assertive “Amish”. How to calmly survey the ridge line? Well, by listening to the guests of Futurapolis Planète 2022 debate. All defend a vision of a less distressing, and even possibly happy future: the historian Georges Vigarello, the nuclear specialist Stéphane Sarrade, the space entrepreneur Barbara Belvisi or even the climatologist François Gemenne helps us not to give up in the quest for reasonable pleasure. Without losing sight of the new climate imperative.
Do you have to give up the plane, cultivate your vegetable garden, abandon your car or even buy everything second-hand? It’s up to you to decide, in the end, by heading to the Quai des savoirs to meet our guests and discuss with them. These November 24, 25, 26, you have all the cards in hand, and the opportunity to decide.

8:00 p.m. – How Vinci is thinking about decarbonizing its motorways
Christopher Hugh, deputy managing director of Vinci Autoroutes, recalls some figures on his sector: “In France, transport accounts for 30% of carbon emissions, including 94% of emissions coming from the road. So if we want to decarbonize the road, we have to start with the highway. We are working on the development of shared mobility, the reception of electric or hydrogen vehicles, and communication between the infrastructure and the vehicle. »
One of the lines of work is on tolls which produce pollution when vehicles restart: “We want to replace them with automatic ‘free flow’ gates which detect badges or vehicle registration plates”, explains the CEO of Vinci.
7:52 p.m. – How to revolutionize mobility?
At a time of essential decarbonization of mobility, which represents a third of carbon emissions, automobile mobility must do its part, when we know that it constitutes the majority of emissions from the transport sector. We must therefore revolutionize the road mobility sector by transforming the motorway network in particular.
With Christopher HughDeputy Managing Director of Vinci Autoroutes.
7:50 p.m. – A land valuation model to be reviewed
“We must thoroughly review the model of land valuation which dates from the post-war period, from the 30 Glorious years. Today, the value of land is mainly based on its constructability.

In France, the SNCF has the second largest land base in France after that of the State. Katayoune Panahi, director of SNCF Immobilier and member of the executive committee of the SNCF Group, wishes first of all to recall SNCF’s commitment to promoting train transport rather than other more polluting modes of transport: “Our objective is to double the share of rail in the transport of humans and goods. You emit 50 times less CO2 if you travel from Paris to Toulouse by train than by car. However, the rail mode represents only a 10% share of all modes of transport. »
7:13 p.m. – Can philosophy save innovation?
At the time of the great metamorphoses of the time, we can no longer think of innovation as in the 20th century. However, the training of innovators and managers remains largely identical to what they were in the past. It’s time to put innovation to the test of philosophy. For more wisdom in a time of turmoil, it’s time to impose philosophical spiritual exercises on yourself.
With Xavier Paviephilosopher, professor at Essec Business School, program director at the International College of Philosophy, author in particular of “Innovation put to the test of philosophy” and “Philosophical spiritual exercises” at the PUF.

With the war in Ukraine and the economic sanctions against Russia, the risk of an energy blackout is real for France this winter. According Marianne Laigneau, President of the Enedis Management Board, “every lever is being used to avoid this coming to an end. This could happen if our electricity production is insufficient, if the weather is too cold, or if electricity imports are not sufficient”. She reveals the solutions to avoid this situation: “first lower our radiator by one degree, then shift the hours of activation of the hot water tanks, which can bring in 2 GWh. Finally, we can lower the voltage on the distribution network”.

Estelle Brachlianoff, CEO of Veolia, praises the merits of biogas: “It is a gas produced from waste in treatment plants, and it is a deposit that is only partly exploited. According to her, we can replace 25% of Russian gas with our gas: “So it concerns the sovereignty of the country. Technically, we can know how to do it within 5 years. »
