The Think Tank, your privileged Talk appointment, with Le Monde
The 5th stage of the festival, the halo of a very recent award for environmental awareness in London on March 3rd at the AGF Awards*, a place to listen, exchange and emulate… Since its creation in 2013, We Love Green’s Think Tank has been pursuing the same ambition: to promote tomorrow’s ideas, driven by iconoclastic thinkers and committed personalities. This year, the Think Tank is changing pace and inaugurating new formats.
CARTE BLANCHE À LIVE MAGAZINE: We Love Green is pleased to announce its collaboration with Live Magazine, a living diary that brings to life, in words, sounds and images, intimate and planetary stories. Fundamental for those who tell them, unforgettable for those who listen to them, they are 100% ephemeral and will fit, like flashes of poetry on the Think Tank stage. Intense moments to capture, now, or never.
NEW COMEDY SCENE: Disruptive, engaged, disturbing… humour is the first of the rebellions, of those that make you step back and, who knows, take action. In 2020, the Think Tank inaugurates its comedy club: renowned stand uppers, young talents and very nice surprises to come.

The future of the planet is being played out in Africa…
The continent that pollutes the least, suffers most violently from global warming. If nothing is done, the 2.5 billion Africans it will count in 2,050 will no longer be able to eat or breathe. This is an issue on which Le Monde Afrique is turning the spotlight with two dedicated meetings in the framework of the think- tank.
A focus on the Great Green Wall, firstly, will take the festival-goer from Senegal to Ethiopia in the footsteps of a crazy project, the construction of an 8,000 km long tree barrier to combat the progressive desertification of the region.
A film, “The Great Green Wall”, and debates with Malian actress and singer, Inna Modja, will join in a conversation with Senegalese ecologist Haidar El Ali.
The second meeting will be dedicated to civil society initiatives with activists for a greener Africa, who are committed on a daily basis and in their communities to ensure that Africa can make its voice heard in the fight against climate change, but also that ecological issues are taken into account by public decision-makers.
