Fwd: [Newsletter] Transition énergétique et énergies renouvelables

*La transition énergétique est nécessaire et passe par les énergies renouvelables*


A l'occasion de la 6e édition des Mardis de l'avenir, consacrée aux énergies nouvelles, Corentin SIVY dresse le tableau du potentiel des énergies renouvelables en France. La France fait partie de ces pays sans véritable ressource fossile abondante et bon marché. Mais cela représente une chance, car nous pouvons justement prendre de l'avance et développer les technologies de demain.

*Penser le financement de la transition énergétique sur le court et le long terme*


Investir ou ne pas investir ? Telle est la question que se poseraient les acteurs économiques privés face au défi de la transition énergétique. A contrario, les acteurs publics et les responsables politiques sont persuadés du bien fondé et du besoin urgent de cette transition. Sans nul doute, la puissance publique doit devenir le pivot de la transition énergétique.


A l'heure où les acteurs financiers restent frileux face à des risques qu'ils connaissent mal, au moment où les pays développés courent après la croissance, la troisième révolution industrielle selon Jeremy Rifkin est en marche et n'arrive pas à trouver acquéreur à l'échelle nationale et européenne. Les nouvelles technologies, notamment dans le domaine de l'énergie, constituent une manne incroyable. Il y a eu l'or blanc au Moyen Âge, l'or massif venu d'Amérique et l'or noir de l'Arctique. Nous devons aujourd'hui exploiter et développer l'or vert, une ressource inépuisable. Il faut en être convaincu. L'Eldorado est en Europe. L'Eldorado se crée en ce moment. Reste seulement à aligner les intérêts des différents acteurs, trouver les bons outils de financement et adapter la temporalité.

What's On at Findhorn - July and August 2014

Hello Dear One

Before I tell you about what's coming up, I want to share with you that this year's EarthSings conference was again a fantastic week of singing for unity and wellbeing. It was such a joy to participate in some of the sessions and then have the pleasure a second time when writing articles for our website. The energy created during events like this is just so uplifting and transformational!

Sacred Dance FestivalSo I'm really looking forward to our annual Festival of Sacred Dance, Music and Song coming up in July. For those of you who like to sing, dance and maybe also play an instrument, this is a wonderful opportunity to experience the connection and heart opening that comes when we gather together in a circle. This year's special guest teacher is Piry Krakow who conveys the dignity, power and grace of the Roma dances; Laura Shannon, together with Kostantis Kourmadias providing live music, shares traditional Greek and Balkan ritual dances; Barbara Swetina leads the Festival Choir and Bill Henderson the Festival Orchestra….(read more)

The summer months are a wonderful time to visit the Foundation. The gardens are lush and colourful, producing delicious salads and other vegetables for our meals and beautiful flowers to nourish our sense of beauty as experienced through the eyes and nose. The weather is warm and when the sun is shining, there is no better place on earth to be.

Our flagship Experience Week programme runs every week at this time of year and we also have a number of Special Experience Weeks focusing on music, family, youth, Spanish, French, Portuguese or Italian happening in July and August. So if you haven't yet participated in an Experience Week – seven days that can change your life and your world – and would like to, you're spoiled for choice. Please see here for a full listing of the various Experience Week categories.
