MANIFESTO

Over the last few centuries, and more particularly over the last few decades, human societies have been driven by destructive models of dominant success: accumulation of wealth, opulence, oppression, predation, exploitation, competition, individualism, control of the environment, etc.

PROJET - MANIFESTE

The advent of industrial revolutions and the globalized economy brought them to their climax in what is called The Great Acceleration - critical threshold of Anthropocene.

The successive exceeding of planetary boundaries, the incessant alerts of scientists and the dazzling quest for meaning are major signals: we are today at a crossroads forfuture.


We live in a decisive era: that of a choice between the prolongation of a destructive excess of life or the emergence of sustainable and fertile cooperation.

It is obvious to us that the success models of our societies are at the heart of change.

They are the ones who, consciously or unconsciously, we inspire, we guide and give us access to ambitions which until then seemed unaccomplishedessible.

Systemic changes are necessary. They should not be limited to technical and pragmatic questions; but rethink values, cultures, the economy, education and individual models of success.

 

It is fundamental to radically change development models and the vision of progress in order to rethink our ways of living together, in order to create a more inclusive and sustainable society. Kosmogonia wishes to contribute to this through research by putting the knowledge generated at the service of the radical transformations to be carried out.

The Kosmogonia research programme aims to build bridges between science and society. Between social science research and militant, radical action on the ground.

 

The 21st century is subject to a major risk, where science could be discredited by private interests, industrial interests, the media, fake news and cynicism, as we have seen over the last few decades with tobacco, fossil fuels and chemical fertilisers. where science has been manipulated and studies directed to generate doubts.

 

It is essential to allow the necessary radical ecological and social decisions to take place at all levels, on the basis of strong and credible research. Kosmogonia's ambition is to contribute to this.

It is not a question of running away from reality, but of living it with passion. The awakening of jubilation is, the most effective antidote against the absurd at all levels

PROJECT STAGES

PROJET - ETAPES

CHAPTER 1 - PROJECT DESIGN

January 2022 - September 2022

We have been working since the beginning of 2022 on the definition and framing of the research project, the intention of the project as well as on the writing, training in shooting, the development of our ecosystem and the establishment of the financing plan... At the same time, we continue to give courses in higher education establishments and provide training in companies on ecological issues. 

All this while living third-time in the heart of an experimental eco-place for transitions: the Joigny Caserne Bascule.

CHAPTER 2 - EUROPE

September 2022 - October 2023

We travelled exclusively by train and bike, we naturally decided to start our exploration in France, in order to establish the basis of our research project, carry out the first field tests and confront ourselves with roaming in order to best adjust our equipment and pace for the future.

# Interviews carried out in France: 50

CHAPTER 3 - ROAMING IN EUROPE TO ASIA

November 2023 - June 2024

We swap our bicycle equipment for a backpack to start our great international itinerant which starts in England with an immersion at Schumacher College. Then we will gradually leave for China, passing through Hungary (1.5 months), Romania, Turkey (2 months), Georgia and Kazakhstan. 

# Planned interviews: 20

CHAPTER 3 - ASIA

Image by JK

July 2024 - September 2025

Our passage in Asia will highlight valuable contrasts with the countries encountered previously. New perspectives and cultures to refine the research work and complete our collection of stories in order to achieve a complete vision of the issues of ecological seesaws. We will take advantage of this roaming to work remotely on the analysis of our collected data and the writing of an essay.

# Interviews planned30

CHAPTER 4 - SHARING STORIES

Image by Nong V

From the end of 2025

This 3-year adventure will have allowed the collection and analysis of numerous life stories and testimonies of pioneers and organisations working for radical ecological breakthroughs.

Academic articles, studies, white papers, books, comics, conferences, podcasts... there are so many potential formats which could subsequently allow and guarantee a open to as many people as possible Kosmogonia learning keys.

THE TEAM

PROJET - EQUIPAGE

THE INITIATORS

After performing several professional and personal transitions, we launched in 2020 into training on the challenges of planetary boundaries through our structure Swarm for future.

We have been supporting companies, communities and higher education establishments to transform themselves through the integration of new cultures and knowledge bases on ecological issues.

After leading more than 500 workshops, conferences and training with all types of audiences (leaders, students, government, local elected officials, etc.), we have decided to once again take a step aside to initiate Kosmogonia, an unprecedented action research project which aims to reconcile research and field.

WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE?

I have always had a particular sensitivity for living things and the intuition that our ways of creating society were not adapted. Year after year, I managed to transform my anger into a driving force inviting me to actively participate in something bigger than my time in existence. 

 

It was first of all the artistic, philosophical and educational subjects that pushed me to think and then act. Later, the joyful and voluntary rediscovery of sciences allowed me to acquire a real baluchon of knowledge on climate issues, biodiversity, energy. I now take pleasure in distributing them in course and training formats.ns, interactive workshops and now: academic researche.

My mantra : Being on the right side of history.

WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE?

I had the chance to carry out several exchanges in Asia during my studies(China and India). I became fully aware of the complexity of the world and the need to demonstrate adaptation and cooperation in an increasingly complex world.

 

After having experienced between 2016 and 2019 a real binge of training and conferences on multiple subjects(philosophy, science, astronomy, ecology, energy and geopolitics), I decided to take full part in projects serving a desirable future, in favor of life and cooperation. 

My mantra: Important but not serious !
