ORGANIZED BY PHD STUDENTS, FOR PHD STUDENTS
The "Sorbonne Développement Durable" (SDD) association organized an international conference for Ph.D students, "COP 21: 5 years after", on April 21 and 22, 2021, in the Richelieu Amphitheater of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris and the Indochina Pavilion of the Cité du Développement Durable in Nogent-sur-Marne.
Ph.D students designed this international conference on sustainable development, Thomas PERNET-COUDRIER (economics) and Laurine WAGNER (arts) with the help of Antoine CASTET (economics) under the direction of Mr. Yann TOMA and Mrs. Anne LE NAËLOU for 19 international Ph.D students. The scientific committee was as follows: Mr. Yann TOMA, Mrs. Mathilde MAUREL, Mr. Jean-Claude BERTHELEMY, Mrs. Anne LE NAËLOU, Mr. Florent PRATLONG, Mrs. Kathia MARTIN-CHENUT, Mr. Antoine MANDEL and Mr. Emmanuel PICAVET.
This international conference for Ph.D students, held at Paris 1 University and in Zoom, gathered experts and Ph.D. students to discuss their research across four workshops on different themes: Energy for all, Think about human development, Let's have urban & rural sustainability, and Care about well-being. These additional axes questioned environmental changes, the Paris Agreements, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
During these two days, the conference was conducive to documenting, updating, and discussing the first solutions proposed and implemented by the 195 representative States since 2016. Based on the work carried out by the 19 young participating researchers, the socio-economic, political, cultural, and various methodological disciplinary points of view were questioned and analyzed.
The composition of the panels was as follows :
ENERGY FOR ALL
THINKING HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
TOWARDS URBAN AND RURAL SUSTAINABILITY
Each researcher has distanced himself from the action of the SDGs and their research to gain height step back to put them to the test of the facts.
Through this inclusive and united approach, one of the conference's main objectives was to bring together, based on the presentations of current Ph.D. work, exchanges conducive to bringing out new ideas and methods of social transformation.
This first conference's objective lay the foundations of an across Ph.D. thematic network open to research laboratories involved in these themes in France and abroad. Thus the continuation of new editions of this international conference will make it possible to experiment with a new way of doing research, in a transversal and multidisciplinary way, to contribute to understanding transformations of the society on both a local and global scale.
