Science Festival 2022, Communication and Awareness: Pascal Coppi, Regional Delegate for Research and Technology, Morning Guest

Like every year, the Science Festival returns in New Caledonia. The festivities begin today and run until November 27. Pascal Coppi, Regional Delegate for Research and Technology, tells us about the program and gives us his vision for science and knowledge transfer. He was a guest on the morning of Thursday 10 November.

Two weeks to raise New Caledonian awareness of science. Led by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, the Science Festival in New Caledonia is coordinated by Cresica (Consortium for Research, Higher Education and Innovation). “This is an event open to everyone, even the youngest from kindergarten. The interest is to bring science closer to society because there are a lot of scientific developments that have consequences for our society.”Pascal Cope said. But what exactly are we talking about? “Science tries to identify new knowledge and especially gain knowledge about our surroundings. But above all, it’s fun.”Explanation of the regional delegate for research and technology.

Often considered complex or abstract, the idea is to enhance understanding of the world around us by bringing science closer to the citizen, with a desire to make it more accessible to all. “Science above all feelings and discoveries. Personally, the first event that marked me when I was very young was the first steps on the moon. It was the knowledge that was taken in the face and that left indelible traces.”.

For the 2022 edition, 35 events are planned in the three provinces, 28 of which will be presented to the general public. This year’s chosen theme: “Climate Awakening”. For Pascal Cope, it’s a trait”Very close to the community, because note, we can do it ourselves every day. The topic has imposed itself on us in light of the current events between major climatic events and the rise of the oceans or the demise of biodiversity..
