Under the direction of Olivier Blond Prefaces by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
Vivre Ensemble – 7 Milliards d’Autres, published in partnership with Agence France Presse, sheds light on great issues brought about by the worldwide demographic growth.
Achieved by the GoodPlanet Foundation, this book is first and foremost addressed to a large public.
The first chapter, “7 Milliards d’Autres”, gathers testimonies from men and women of the 5 continents. This chapter refers to the GoodPlanet Foudation project by the same name. The concept is to offer a testimony of the incredible wealth of humanity in the 21st century.
The following chapters, introduced by expert texts (among which 3 have been translated from English by Agnès El Kaim), take on important associated topics : “La bombe humaine” (Hervé Le Bras) - “L’empreinte de l’homme” (Mathis Wackernagel)- “Crises” (Ismail Serageldin et Dov Zerah)- “Vivre ensemble” (Michel Griffon)- “Consommer autrement, La consommation, au lieu d’être un problème, pourrait devenir la solution” (Rob Hopkins)- “Futurs” (Virginie Raisson).
This work carries the humanist and optimistic message that is to live with one’s time, as suggested by Martin Luther King’s words which inspired the book’s title : “we must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
This book is illustrated by a selection of some of Agence France Presse and Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s most beautiful photographs. The texts are supplemented by key figures, statistics, maps and graphs.
