The Lost Defenders of the Environment by Mika Yamaguchi and Orion Cruz

Conference et debate led by Madeleine Planeix-Crocker

  • A l'initiative de Madeleine Planeix-Crocker, élève de la Majeure/Mastère Média-Art et Création de HEC Paris, l'Espace d'art contemporain HEC vous invite le vendredi 11 décembre à 16h30 sur le campus HEC à une conférence autour de l'oeuvre The Lost Defenders of the Environment  de Mika Yamaguchi et Orion Cruz.

    The Lost Defenders of the Environment calls attention to the 991 documented environmental activists who were killed or the victims of disappearances from 2002 to 2014 in thirty-nine countries. While nationally sanctioned monuments traditionally commemorate those who perished in battle, Mike Yamaguchi and Orion Cruz's Non-memorial recognizes marginalized victims of often secret persecutions, revealing the staggering number of known deaths and disappearances resulting from systemic oppression; traumatic killings that are, in many cases, not recognized as crimes. The Non-memorial is a digital film projection of names. It is mobile and fleeting so it derives its significance from what it is not. It is not a memorial; it is not a permanent; it does not provide closure, nor is it indicative of justice. It can be anywhere because it is nowhere, and it is nothing until leaders/governments make the changes necessary to prevent more deaths of environmental activists.

    The event is listed in the official program for COP21:

Alliances for Cities in Transition

HEC Paris' Society & Organizations (SnO) Center and HEC Alumni are pleased to announce the theme for their annual conference:
Alliances for Cities in Transition.

  • Cities are faced with an urgent, massive and wicked  challenge: to achieve carbon neutrality while ensuring the inclusion and empowerment of all their citizens. To wicked challenges, complex solutions: transitioning to new city models will not be achieved without the persistent and convergent mobilization of all actors: citizens and the civil society, public, private, investors, researchers...

    HEC Paris sheds light on multi-actor initiatives that aim to build the sustainable, inclusive and resilient cities of tomorrow.
    Join us on October 19 to exchange on the following questions:

    • What is our shared vision for future cities?
    • What are the models of multi-stakeholder collaboration that could maximize impact?
    • Which business models and funding tools will do transition ?
    • … And what about HEC Paris’ territorial footprint?
