WE MUST RESIST Jane GOODALL - Patron Climax 2018
DARWIN EMBLEMATIC LOCATION
FOR ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION IN EUROPE DARWIN, AN IDEAL PLAYGROUND
CLIMAX ESSENTIAL ECO-MOBILISATION !
The Caserne Niel in Bordeaux was a Military barracks for over 150 years. It then became an urban wasteland during the early 2000s, finally seeing investment by entrepreneurs keen to shift the borders on key contemporary topics: ecological transition, responsible economy, solidarity, culture.
Climax does not hide from this requirement and even takes it to the next level. The festival impacts are planned and executed with extreme rigor. Our fundamentals focus on maximising the sorting and recycling of waste, reducing our carbon footprint, producing 100% vegetarian & organic food, and using 100% local and renewable electricity.
A true beacon of a resilient society in France, Darwin Ecosystem combines a multitude of entrepreneurial and associative activities and demonstrates that another style of society is possible.
In recognition of this investment and the results, Climax was rewarded in February 2018 with the "Prize of the ecoresponsible action" which was awarded at the "Festival Awards".
ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION IN MOTION !
An event to arouse curiosity and commitment. An event to celebrate life and the urgency to protect it. An event to repeatedly show that another model of society and a more respectful of way of life is necessary!
Darwin advocates the principles of moderation and sharing base values for all our projects. Low-tech ambition, heritage preservation, renovation of buildings and high energy performance, 100% renewable electricity supply, strict management of water and waste, the proposal for organic & local food are the cornerstones our our approach. Offering more than 200 events each year, Darwin has gained solid experience and expertise in responsible events.
We believe that culture and emotions will help us to change the world ! For four days, concerts, conferences, arts, culture and urban sports provide festival-goers with a unique experience filled with emotion and mobilization.
Our achievements 2015 At the end of our first edition, which focused on the issue of the oceans, the Ministry of the Environment announced the creation of an "Oceans Day" on the occasion of Cop 21, effectively placing this concern on the negotiating agenda. The Minister will then announce a ban on plastic bags..
to launch the operation “Trop Froid” (“Too Cold”), with the creation of 75 emergency reception places for unaccompanied minor refugees. Awarded the prize for the best "ecoresponsible" festival. 2018 Back at the Caserne Niel (barracks) and on the banks of the Garonne, the Climax festival had one of its most beautiful editions with the unprecedented meeting between Edgar Morin and Jane Goodall, the highly acclaimed speech by astrophysicist Aurélien Barreau, and a grand finale with Edgar Morin's “Appel des Fraternités” (Call for brotherhood) illuminated by Arthur H's piano.
2016 Edgar Morin and Marion Cotillard launch the "Darwin alert", co-signed by about twenty NGOs, which makes it possible to launch a study program to get out of fossil fuels. An unforgettable moment with an international impact. In parallel, an emergency shelter village was built in Darwin in collaboration with Emmaus.
2019 In keeping with their joint commitment to the protection of the oceans, Sea Shepherd and Banzaï Darwin organized the 2019 edition of Ocean Climax on the Arcachon Basin.
2017 The first edition of the festival in its 100% veggie form, this Climax edition set off from the heights of Cenon, was also the occasion
WITH EARTH WITHOUT EXCEPTION 2018 SUMMARY POWERFUL ! We were more than 30,000 big apes in attendance for CLIMAX's global warming to awake and shake Darwin's foundations. Darwin is the emblematic cornerstone of Europe's ecological transition which mobilises more than a million visitors every year.
INTENSE ! We are proud to have come through with the goods for this 4th edition of the festival which was held at the Caserne Niel in Bordeaux. We committed more than 40 hours of LIVE events, invited 50 NGOs, offered food options that were 100% organic and vegetarian and we produced more than 30 hours of conferences to promote public awareness on the collapse of Biodiversity and the first victims of climate change...
STRONG ! Bordeaux was in party mode over 4 days, thanks to vibrant speeches that propelled this exceptional eco-mobilization. Magnetising moments such as the implosion of a glass bottle during Dr. Jane Goodall's conference while she was thinking about the issue of accessible freshwater. Edgar Morin's 'Appel des FraternitĂŠs' had a national impact especially thanks to publication 'LibĂŠration', which made its mark the next day with the meeting of Morin / Goodall whose dialogue gave a deeper meaning to the Climate March which took place on the Saturday.

ocean climax 2019 June 28, 29 and 30, 2019 - Arcachon Basin Five years after the first edition of Ocean Climax festival, Darwin and Sea-Shepherd team to make a new commitment in 2019 in favor of the protection of the oceans and coastal resilience by organizing an eco-mobilization on June 28, 29 and 30 in Arcachon and La Teste de Buch. Indeed, for decades, we have witnessed an intensification of the impact of our activities on marine ecosystems: warming and acidification due to greenhouse gas emissions, plastic and chemical pollution, multiplication of dead zones, overfishing, collapse of biodiversity. In the face of this ongoing disaster, it was time to meet again, to exchange and to commit
ourselves to protecting our blue planet. This eco-mobilization brought together a series of conferences, concerts but also water-based activities, collection of submersible waste, a cafĂŠ-debate, etc., in line with the Sea and Coastline national celebration. During these three days, guests from all over France contributed to raise awareness of the urgent need to preserve marine and coastal ecosystems and move towards resilience.

climax 2019 AMAZONIA, OR THE UPROOTING OF THE WORLD “YA PIHI IRAKEMA”, is how Yanonami Indians express their love."A part of you lives and grows inside me", what better statement to announce the 2019 CLIMAX mobilization, calling for the protection of Amazonia, the forests and the recognition of the cultures they sustain? There are places where the song of life is gagged by the din of machines and the deafening madness of men. The destruction of Amazonia can be seen as a dull echo: deforestation is raging, biodiversity collapses, and the native tribes of Amazonia, falling victims that suffer the same destiny as the forest. One of the two lungs of he planet alongside the oceans, essential for the production of oxygen, a veritable crucible of biodiversity, is about to be ransacked even faster than it already is. With the election of Jair Bolsonaro, who has just refused to hold the future COP25 scheduled for Brazil in autumn 2019, the world will find it even harder to catch its breath. Other signals point to this predatory trend: the merger of the Ministries of Environment and Agriculture, the appointment of a climate scientist to the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, and the willingness to bind the Trump administration proving that nationalism and ecologism do not combine. This reality demonstrates the absolute urgency to build an archipelago of consciences that goes beyond our local and particular interests in order to embody an active citizen counterpower on a larger scale. Thus, CLIMAX ecomobility, opened and committed for 5 years, must carry this cause both widely and strongly rooted in us. We invite you to join us on September 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2019, for these four days of celebration of the Amazon rainforest, all the forests of the world, their peoples and their biodiversity through concerts, conferences and speeches of our great witnesses. Following the cancellation of Jair Bolsonaro and aware of the absolute urgency embodied in the ecological crisis, would we be creative and committed enough to invent a more innovative and effective form of joint actions than the COP?

THE AMAZONIA OR THE UPROOTING OF THE WORLD In the same movement, the uprooting of trees calls for the uprooting of peoples. A FEW FIGURES: • Between 1990 and 2015, 240 million
hectares of forest were deforested. In 2030, the loss could amount to an additional 170 million hectares at the current rate. • Tropical and primary forests are the
most affected, mainly because of monocultures of soya, palm oil and intensive livestock farming.
Brazil is the country that deforested the most: Amazonia has already lost 20% of its surface area and this share is expected to increase to 40-55% in 2050 at the current rate. Between 2014 and 2015, deforestation increased by 15%. •
The areas the most affected by deforestation are Central America, South America and Africa. •
• In 2017, 294.000 km2 of forest was
destroyed worldwide, the equivalence of one football field per second.
The United Nations have declared 2019 as the Year of Indigenous Languages. Supporting our project, CLIMAX has been labelled as an event contributing to the dissemination and preservation of indigenous languages and cultures.
As a direct consequence of this scourge, native cultures living within forest ecosystems are gradually or violently driven out of their ancestral lands. Since the European conquests, the Amerindians were constantly persecuted, but with the election of Jair Bolsonaro in 2019 and his predatory and uncomplicated
policy, the question of the eradication of their cultures is brutally raised: “it’s a shame that the Brazilian cavalry wasn’t as effective as the Americans, who exterminated their Indians. »
Use memory to heal History and avoid repeating its dark periods In choosing to evoke French Guyana and the peoples of Amazonia, we must, from Bordeaux, face up to the historical ties that connect us, across the ocean, to a community of destiny. Bordeaux, like the other major ports that were once slave ports, bears in its memory the responsibility for the deportation of 150,000 black slaves to the Americas from 1672 to 1837. As many downfalls of the world experienced by African peoples, uprooted from their lands, uprooted from their identity and condemned to survive in despair. As a door of no-return.... They knew, once they passed, that they would not come back. In Brazil, Suriname, Guyana... their goal was to run away in the forest to resist, to take refuge in nature, to take root there and find a place they could name home;
to rebuild a human community, far from this nightmare, among the first root peoples. It's the story of the Maroons of Guyana, BushinenguĂŠs, "Blacks of the forest", Lowe nengue, "those who fled slavery", Bonis, Garifunas, Saramakas, Alukus, Ndyuka... They are all communities rich from their beliefs, their art and crafts, their vision of the world, their knowledge, their knowhow, in short their identity, from which we have so much to learn, without falling into the angelic idealization of the "good savage". An identity, today, that seeks to reinvent itself between acculturation and tradition, to find its way beyond integration and disintegration; the challenge is complex.
FEATURED NGO’S PARTNERS
A non-profit association, Nature Rights has been working since 2009 to preserve the rights of Nature and indigenous peoples. Nature Rights is committed to identify, support and connect initiatives dedicated to the defense and promotion of the rights of Nature and Indigenous peoples, so that they become a legal, ethical or operational reality.
Mémoires & Partages is the result of the work carried out by the DiversCités associations and the Foundation “Mémorial de la traite des noirs” (Slave Trade Memorial), which have been working since 1998 to defend and rehabilitate the memory of the slave trade and slavery in Bordeaux (France). Based in Bordeaux and Dakar, with operations in La Rochelle, Le Havre and Nantes, the International Association Mémoires & Partages develops its action around a strong axis which is the public education in shared memory.
TO TAKE UP ROOTS WITH COURAGE For decades, many indigenous leaders and their peoples have opposed deadly dynamics to defend their culture and the ecosystems they inhabit, despite the killings they have been targeted for. Their struggle invites us to question the sensitive links we have between living people. In response to the rise of sterile nationalism, coalitions of indigenous people, activists and legal professionals, local elected officials are organizing themselves to fight with courage and promote other and more sustainable organizations, economies and societies. In recent years, within "modern societies", more and more voices have been raised to mobilize around the defense of the climate, ecosystems and life, to oppose neo-liberal inequalities and the rejection of others.
Edgar Morin, great witness of the 2018 CLIMAX edition, invited us to create planetary instances to grasp these complexities and address the vital problems of our humanity. In 2019, we can be sure that we will meet this crucial challenge. In September, through the theme of "Amazonia, or the uprooting of the world" and with the partnership of Nature Rights, Memories and Sharing and the New Aquitaine Region, the Climax festival wants to join this great challenge. It will share and recognize these human diversities, other than human and cultural, heal history, resist the barbarism of our current civilization and reinvent ourselves in an earthly consciousness, towards the archipelago of consciousness.
THE LONELINESS VIRTUAL MODERNITY
placed our societies on a path fundamentally uprooted from reality. The "modern" man, pure product of the invitation to consuming individualism and a fragmented education opposed to a complex apprehension of the present stakes and therefore emancipation, constitutes the receptacle in which these global dynamics express themselves.
Far from a "it was better before" perspective, we, ÂŤmodernsâ€?, must recognize the loss of our ability to feel connected to our fellow human beings, ecosystems and non-human beings. Growing in a fertile ground of a vision that is both religious and Cartesian of what only "Westerners" call "Nature", the massive exploitation of fossil fuels and ecosystems, the multiplication of flows, the intensification of production, the excess that has become the norm during the last centuries have
THE GREAT WITNESSES 2019 CASEY CAMP HORINEK Member of the delegation of indigenous peoples' representatives, major witness to CLIMAX 2019 The representative of the Ponca Nation of Oklahoma will honor us with her presence as a key witness during the 2019 edition of the CLIMAX eco-mobilization festival. This environmental activist engaged in Standing Rock's fight against the construction of a pipeline, for the protection of Indian cultures and of Mother Earth in a common movement.
RAONI METUKTIRE The great emblematic cacique of the Kayapo people living in the heart of the indigenous territory of Capoto-Jarina, Raoni has become, over the years, an international figure in the struggle to preserve the Amazonian forest and indigenous cultures. In 40 years, Raoni has been able to cross cultural divides, driven by a vital pragmatism, as of the warrior, obstinate and rebellious who continues his fight to safeguard the lands and forests where he was born. Raoni will do us the honor of being with us this year at CLIMAX as a great witness, accompanied by his close resistance companions. Meeting them is meeting the sentinels of the planet, it is also a founding immersion in the heart of the threats and global issues facing us.
MUNDIYA KEPANGA Originally from Tari in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, Mundiya Kepanga is a Papuan leader. Observer of the developed world whom he likes to comment on in a personal way, it has become a voice among indigenous peoples. It was after a trip to France that he became an ambassador for the forest, calling for the protection of his brothers: the trees. It is by being a great witness of this CLIMAX that Mundiya Kepanga will give us the opportunity to join him in his fight for the protection of forest ecosystems.
NICOLAS HULOT Journalist, animator and television producer, writer, businessman and politician, Nicolas Hulot, former French Minister of Ecology, is always multiplying his possibilities to achieve his objective: to protect the ecosystems. A fervent protector of the environment, he will come as a great witness of this edition and invite us to project ourselves into the future, to dare build something new and to open a new chapter in our individual and collective history.
HAĂ?DAR EL ALI Born into a Lebanese family that immigrated to Senegal in the 1940s, HaĂŻdar El Ali is defined as one of the 100 most influential environmentalists on the planet. Former Senegalese Minister of Ecology, he is now Director of the Oceanium of Dakar. His first militant act was to release fish trapped in a ghost net. Later on, he opposed the blast fishing practices, which kill every live species in the sea and destroyed the seabed. He is responsible for replanting hundreds of thousands of trees in mangroves, cleaning the seabed by removing ghost nets and for his fierce fight against climate injustice. This committed politician will do us the honor of being a great witness of this 2019 edition of CLIMAX and to invite us to join his fight.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5
The conference cycle will begin with an inauguration in the presence of the partners of the CLIMAX eco-mobilization festival. During this round table, we invite you to explore the different dimensions of uprooting that we wish to explore over the four days. Are deforestation, the difficult condition of indigenous peoples, the duty to remember slavery and the uprooting of "modern" societies the expression of the same dynamic that would be expressed everywhere? How are these different dimensions related?

VOICE OF THE AUTOCHTONE PEOPLES
STATUS AND TESTIMONIES OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES Attacks on indigenous peoples have become more frequent and violent since the recent election of Jair Bolsonaro. But this enterprise of destroying their rich cultures has been going on for centuries through massacres, the destruction of ecosystems, slavery and acculturation. At a time when the survival of our species depends on our ability to listen to the voices of the living, the voices of indigenous peoples must inspire us with the wisdom to find our rightful place. These are the perspectives that our guests will develop during this round table. •

HOW TO OPPOSE THE PROMISES OF MAJOR INDUSTRIAL GROUPS ? Job creation, regulation of polluting practices and economic growth are all unsustainable promises made by large industrial groups to the populations of countries with rich ecosystems. Without denying the benefits, impacts and role of the development of Western societies, we will explore, through this talk, other perspectives that are truly resilients (crafts, ecotourism, agroforestry), allowing us to respond positively to the populations’ needs while measuring the potential excesses of such solutions. •

THE URGENCY OF REMEMBERING
THE DUTY OF REMEMBRANCE TOWARDS TRIANGULAR TRADE, COLONNIALISM AND GENOCIDE From the perspective of Bordeaux, when we talk about French Guyana and the peoples of Amazonia, we must face the historical ties that connect us, from across the ocean, to a community of destiny. Forced to realize that the sovereignty and prosperity of Western societies have been built on the basis of the triangular trade and forced labor of millions of slaves, today, we must pay tribute to them, and express an act of remembrance around this dark period of our history. Remembering so that we no longer transgress, this is the credo that we will be committed to develop through this dialogue between highly committed actors. •

STRUGGLES IN WOODLANDS AND MAROONAGE What if we were closer to the forests than we thought? It appears that in the West as much as elsewhere in the world, forests have been and still are the refuge of those who fight against a predatory system: Cévennes camisards, resistance fighters, Maroons, etc. From there, what are the past and present forms of this system, how does it impose itself? What dialogue should be established between past and present struggles on our territories and beyond? What perceptions of ecosystems do these struggles embody? What are the common reasons to fight against these issues: existential, economic, social or spiritual ? •

LAST NEWS OF A CIVILIZATION IN DECLINE
THE UPROOTING OF "MODERN" SOCIETIES Our societies, often characterized as "modern", have been able to extricate themselves from the physical and biological boundaries imposed by the power of fossil fuels. However, in the face of climate change, the collapse of biodiversity and the growth of inequalities, they are now forced to recognize the limits of such a development and to question its foundations. Has the trajectory adopted by modern societies caused their uprooting ? Has economic growth as a project and perspective torn us away from a certain sensitive reality? How to reconnect ? •

pollination dakar / bordeaux / rio PORT FACILITY
Human history has always experienced flows of migration and therefore uprooting. But some uprooting force us to work on history. This duty is too often forgotten with regard to the triangular trade and the slave trade, which, particularly from Bordeaux, have flourished for centuries and claimed some 100 million victims. The 2019 edition of the CLIMAX festival on "Amazonia, or the uprooting of the world" will create bridges between three emblematic ports of this trade, three echoes of a same tribute to think about this dark period of history, three sites - Bordeaux, Dakar and Rio de Janeiro - where a collective facility will be set up to raise awareness of the past in order to build together a community of destinies. To dialogue and remember, in these places soiled by slavery.
At a time when the commodification of the world imposes its burden upon lives and ecosystems, containers will be erected in memory of these human beings reduced to slavery, considered as mere commodities of the maritime trade of the time.
To celebrate diversity to better unite human peoples in what makes them one To denounce the weight of a post-colonialism that resists through many forms of modern slavery
These containers, as real stele, will also be used as tunnels between peoples, as an invitation :
To oppose the fatality of emigration and exile, the predation of natural resources and the destruction of ecosystems
THREE PORTS THREE DOORS ONE MEMORY BUILD DOORS TO TAKE ROOT AGAIN Some people see in a door the hope of an exit. Others find in it the promise of a new territory. The latter see it as a tiny link, a thin and fragile line between two spaces, two eras, or two worlds.
The choice of such a triptych facility is not a coincidence, but a reflection of an urban narrative at the heart of these historical poles of the triangular trade. The richness of this symbolism invites us to think about the links of a common past, and to live, together, to also tell the story of our time...
Darwin Climax Coalition in collaboration with the Spanish artist SpY and the Collective 1024, have designed three gates, three totems, three twin container facilities that will be erected at the entrance of the ports the most marked by the history of uprooting and slavery: Bordeaux, Dakar and Rio.
#DARWINCOALITIONS TOGETHER FOR AN ARCHIPELAGO OF CONSCIENCES
Darwin Coalitions is the wish to mobilize around many collectives, personalities and NGOs already engaged in common struggles to our ecological and humanist convictions. Adaptation, as a life condition itself, is called for in these times of climate chaos and biodiversity erosion, in order to begin the necessary transition to resilient and fair societies in the face of threatening collapses. To this must be combined an imperative of frugality and therefore of sobriety in our individual and collective lifestyles. To that extent, the equitable sharing of resources, the sharing of means of action and the collaboration between actors of change are essential to our approach. Thus, Darwin Coalitions will regularly suggest to build coalitions bringing together local collectives and associations, NGOs, legal professionals, activists, entrepreneurs, researchers and citizens, in order to embody its commitment towards the protection of ecosystems, the preservation of biodiversity, the fight against climate change, social justice and respect for human rights. According to this common cause, the objectives of these coalitions will be to : · Create new knowledge, spread the issues already being fought by nature and human rights defenders, and inspire and encourage commitment through the new editions of the CLIMAX festival, CLIMAX Sessions and Ocean CLIMAX events. During these popular gatherings, we will be dedicated to give visibility and resonance to the voices of nature, the voices of its defenders and to the victims uprooted from their lands because of climate change, the destruction of ecosystems, armed conflicts or growing inequalities. In these decision-making processes, our discourse will denounce the deadly strategy of large groups as well as political inaction, but also enunciate desirable solutions and projects. Thus, we will be both a "sounding board" for vibrant causes and a contributor of alliances.
· R e-wilding, spreading, pollinating, getting out of the boundaries thanks to Banzaï Darwin and CLIMAX Sessions outside the Ecosystem. Darwin Coalitions wishes to promote the reconciliation of actors engaged in various struggles in order to constitute a real "archipelago of consciousness".
· Support actors of change, learn from their experience and resolve conflicts that may arise through exchanges, statements or types of struggle envisioned.
· F ight and resist by supporting these struggles and calling for a common and united mobilization (areas to be defended, demonstrations, non-violent civil actions of disobedience, etc.).
· A ssist legal professionals and promote better legal management of environmental crises, consolidate ongoing legal dynamics, encourage civil participation in major environmental trials, attack those responsible for the world's devastation and to defend in court the destroyed ecosystems and the peoples uprooted by the predation of natural resources.
