INTERVIEW. Yannick Jadot: “It’s a recomposition of the political landscape, around

Lyon, Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Marseille, Poitiers, Besançon, Tours… The new political order is now green. What will happen now for Europe Ecologie-les Verts in anticipation, in particular, of the presidential election of 2022? “It’s more than the union of the lefts that is possible. It is a recomposition of the political landscape, around ecology, that we are calling for, ”explains Green MEP Yannick Jadot. Interview.

Did you expect such a score in the municipal elections?

During the campaign, and especially in recent days, we felt a great desire to change, whether on the issue of transport, housing, food; a great aspiration to organize a different world. This was reflected in a fairly historic way in the polls on Sunday evening, even if the abstention rate is at an extremely worrying level. We will have to restore the link between the French and their elected representatives. Environmental mayors will get down to it.

Has the health crisis amplified this green wave?

There is a search for meaning, on our lifestyles, our housing, the density of cities, food, travel, solidarity, new democratic practices … In a whole part of the population, there is the envy, the desire for a credible change in our society, socially and economically realistic. The speeches of the ecological candidates were in this vein. It’s ecology in action!

What also marks this election is the appearance of a new generation of elected officials…

We campaigned around a triptych: ecology, solidarity and democracy. There is an expectation of renewed teams at the local level. It is very strong in certain cities, a little less in others which already have young elected representatives.

Is the hard part starting now for Europe Ecologie-les Verts?

Elected ecologists will have to prepare cities for ecological transition, to resist the shock of heat waves, to climatic shocks. They will also have to reweave the distended link between the French and politics, between the working classes and politics. The latter are in such distrust that they will no longer vote. You have to be very careful !

After this historic score, we naturally think of 2022 … Are the cards shuffled?

There will clearly be a municipal before and after 2020. It is a real political turning point in the country. The political landscape is recomposed around ecology, solidarity, democracy. There are the victories of environmentalists, and then as in Nantes, Rennes, Paris or Montpellier, victories which were not embodied by environmentalists, but around similar ideas. We will have to continue to gather around this project, to build not timely coalitions, but a real dynamic. This work must continue after the municipal elections, with a view to the departmental, regional and presidential elections.

Is this union of the lefts possible at the national level?

It’s more than the union of the lefts! It is a recomposition of the political landscape, around ecology, that we are calling for, in the face of a Republic on the march which has registered on the right, in alliances with the Republicans, to fight us. We knew the republican front against the far right, today we have a declining front against environmentalists and what they embody, the climate, biodiversity, solidarity …

Environment ministers in the next reshuffle, is it possible?

No. We are all enlightened by Nicolas Hulot… The question is not to have green ministers, since we know that it is not they who decide. The real question is: what is the political project? However, for three years, the President of the Republic has spoken a lot about ecology, but has done very little.

Anne Vignot, a new figure in ecology

It was just ten years ago. For the regional elections of 2010, the environmental party wanted lists made up of half of personalities from civil society. Academic, president of the Conservatory of natural spaces of Franche-Comté, Anne Vignot was thus propelled head of list for the department of Doubs.

Four years later, the ecologist was elected to Besançon on the list led by the socialist Jean-Louis Fousseret, who began a fourth term. In 2020, after the municipal elections, she is now at the head of this city of 120,000 inhabitants. Coming from a working-class background, this single woman, mother of a 33-year-old son, did all her studies and her career in Besançon, a city that has long cultivated a social and environmental fiber.

“A very pugnacious woman”

In 2017, after the rallying of Jean-Louis Fousseret to Emmanuel Macron, the prospect of an environmental list and the name of Anne Vignot to lead it are essential. “Anne is a very pugnacious but also very collective woman”, ensures its main collaborator, Cécile Prudhomme, regional secretary EELV.

It will unite around them the socialists, communists, the Generation-s movement of Benoît Hamon. The meeting is however missed with the members of La Franche Insoumise, too greedy and not loyal enough to Anne Vignot, who is also seeking the presidency of the metropolis.

Then assistant in charge of energy transition and biodiversity, Anne Vignot created a forest council which combines a participatory approach with the challenges of forestry, particularly important in the department. She also obtained for Besançon the label “Biodiversity capital”. The priority of his mandate will notably be the thermal insulation of schools.

green wave and abstentionist tidal wave

Many hoped for it, but nobody really believed it: the jump in participation in the second round of the municipal elections did not take place. The abstention exceeded 60%, Sunday June 28, further aggravating the sad record of the first round and officially becoming the lowest participation rate in a municipal election under the Ve Republic.

“Concerned about the low turnout”

To the point of making Emmanuel Macron react: the Élysée Palace announced in the evening that the president was ” concerned about the low turnout ” Other ministers also deplored this vague abstentionist, like Christophe Castaner, or even Édouard Philippe. The Prime Minister, who celebrated his broad victory in Le Havre, severely recalled that“In France, the choices are made by those who travel to vote”. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, whose party did not shine in the polls, hit the nail on the head, declaring that “The mass of the French people is on civic strike”, and evoking a state of“Cold insurgency”.

After a first round already tainted in the eyes of some voters because of its maintenance despite the epidemic of Covid-19, the context was hardly more favorable in the second round. Health crisis not yet completed, economic crisis, imminent summer vacation, too long between two turns of three and a half months … The reasons for sulking the ballot boxes were too numerous.

But this democratic accident also brutally accentuated a very long-term trend: participation in municipal elections has been declining steadily since 1983. Analysts will still have the difficult task of making the difference between the causes of abstention, between the context unpublished elections, and a long crisis of local democracy. As for the “poorly elected” mayors, they will undoubtedly not escape legitimacy trials, in particular on the part of their opponents.

An ecological breakthrough

Despite its historical level, abstention cannot hide the breakthrough, also unprecedented, of environmentalists in the cities of France. Poitiers, Besançon, Tours, Strasbourg, Lyon … the list of cities that have gone “green” is long, including major cities. In Bordeaux, on the right for 70 years, Pierre Hurmic’s victory was an earthquake, faced with an “anti-ecological front” which had seen the right alliance of the right and the Republic on the march. Even the house Aubry, in Lille, trembled strongly: the socialist mayor, in place since 2001, was given beaten by the ecologist Stéphane Baly during part of the evening, before prevailing on the wire. Finally in Marseille, it was indeed an environmental candidate, although not a member of EELV, who came out on top in the fight for the succession to the right baron Jean-Claude Gaudin.

This unprecedented green wave was obviously welcomed by EELV MEP Yannick Jadot. “What has won tonight, it seems to me, is the desire for a concrete ecology, an ecology in action”, did he declare. While the left, of France rebellious to the socialist party, welcomed this green breakthrough, without forgetting to recall that the environmental candidates were very often at the head of union lists of the left.

When they were not behind the environmentalists, the socialists retained their strongholds. Paris in the first place, where Anne Hidalgo exceeded, according to the first estimates, 50% of the votes. Lille therefore, after a few fears, but also Nantes, Rennes, Dijon, Brest … The PS, which also conquered Montpellier, confirms that “the old world” is not dead and that it will still be necessary to count with it. Even if it undoubtedly gave up Sunday evening to the Greens, its statute of leading party for the unions on the left.

LR had refueled in the first round

On the side of traditional parties, The Republicans can also be satisfied with all of their performance during these municipal elections. After three years of electoral defeat, Christian Jacob, the president of the party, congratulated himself on Sunday for having ” returned to victory ” The Republicans have lost, with Marseille and Bordeaux, two of their major bastions. But they kept Toulouse, and had mostly refueled in the first round on March 15.

For the presidential camp, on the other hand, no miracle has taken place. Jean-Luc Mélenchon did not miss the opportunity to mock Edouard Philippe’s large victory in Le Havre, as ” The tree that hides the forest “. Alliances with the right did not work, in Bordeaux, in Lyon (where it had cost his investiture to Gérard Collomb), or even in Strasbourg where it nevertheless seemed in a very favorable position. As for Paris, Agnès Buzyn experienced the announced sinking, achieving in the second round a worse score (13%) than in the first.

Government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye could only concede ” disappointment Like Stanislas Guérini, the general delegate of the presidential party. The bet of the local implantation is for the time being a failure for the macronist camp. While the National Gathering does a little better by keeping most of its cities, and by signing several new conquests: Perpignan, of course, won by Louis Aliot and which becomes the only city of more than 100,000 inhabitants managed by the extreme right, but also Moissac (Tarn-et-Garonne) or Bruay-la-Buissière (Pas de Calais).

Emmanuel Macron, before the election, already intended to “step over” these municipal elections and move on as quickly as possible, to make people forget the poor but predictable performance of his candidates. A busy international agenda awaits this Monday, June 29, and the much awaited announcements of its directions for the end of the five-year period, accompanied by a very likely reshuffle, should follow. But before all that, the president must receive Monday morning the participants in the Citizen Convention for the climate at the Élysée Palace, to inform them of the follow-up that he intends to give to their proposals. The green wave of municipal officials gives this already long-awaited interview, increased importance.

“It has a value as an example because it succeeds to prove that a mayor ecologist is able to manage a municipality of over 100,000 inhabitants and to keep the power “note Simon Persico, professor at Sciences-Po Grenoble.

No resistance of industrial environments

Happened far in the lead in the first round, with 46,67% of the vote (57,75 % of abstentions), Eric Piolle has benefited from the premium to the outgoing and the dynamics in ecology, ” adds the researcher. In addition, there is not, according to him, “resistance of the socio-economic and industrial, and there has been opposition on the establishment of pedestrian streets, today they are mitigated “.

Increase of 17 percentage points compared to the first round in 2014, the municipal official has the lead by 26 points Alain Carignon (19,80 %), mayor RPR to the city from 1983 to 1995, convicted of corruption in 1996. Supported by the president of the Republicans, Christian Jacob, the old “renovator” of the right has distanced the mp LREM Isère, Emily Chalas (13,75 %), and Olivier Noblecourt (13,31 %), former elected socialist grenoble, france supported by the PS.

The hypothesis of a presidential candidacy

These candidates will compete in a quadrangular, no fusion was possible. The image and positioning of Alain Carignon have prevented any coalition LR-LREM. Supported by Act, Emily Chalas competes for the figure of the first opponent. For his part, Olivier Noblecourt has ruled out any agreement with the head of a list LREM, and reached out to Eric Piolle. He refused, suspecting Olivier Noblecourt positions macronistes, after having been inter-ministerial delegate for the fight against poverty, Édouard Philippe.

Showing its proximity as well with the socialist Anne Hidalgo as the untamed François Ruffin, Eric Piolle, is in the ability to win alone, after having carried out in the first round by a large gathering of citizens and 13 formations of the left, including France insubordinate, the communist Party, Generation-s, New Gives and a few former members of PS.

“He is convinced that the space left must be united for the conquest of power “, highlights Simon Persico. This the ” common home “ is more than a strategy, union local, it may give some weight to the hypothesis of a presidential candidate, competing with that of the european parliament Yannick Jadot, in favour of a strategy of autonomy of the environmentalists.

“The geographers want more be heard in environmental matters “

The Cross : Why geographers publish a synthesis on the anthropocene ?

Philippe Pelletier : In 2016, a small informal group of geographers, in the name of “Rose” – a wild rose, the fruit of which bear hairs to scrape – was formed to carry high and strong the voice of geographers. For some time, in fact, we feel a certain dissatisfaction about major environmental issues, the planning of the territory to climate change through agroecology, deforestation or urbanization.

Result was a reflection that we have it open to a few historians, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and ecologists. It has resulted in the publication of this dictionary of more than 900 pages organized around 330 themes, and written by nearly 200 authors (1).

It is a critical dictionary, engaged, and not just from a catalog. Each and every one of the authors and the authors ‘reflection on the different meaning of the concept it presents, as” capitalocène “, ” écoféminisme “, ” environmental justice “, the ” world ended “, ” ZAD “, “climate change” or even “environment” is now a word-suitcase.

What are your grievances against the environmental approach today ?

P. P. : The current approach is dominated both by the sciences, say the hard (physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, statistics, computer modelling) and by philosophers or lawyers, for example, by Dominique Bourg and Alain Papaux, authors of a Dictionary of ecological thinking (2014). In addition, there are very few geographers in the IPCC.

Geographers have been forgotten. Or have not quite manifested. It is something made today with this dictionary to be critical. By definition, geography is the science that studies the “drawings of the Earth “. In other words, which describes and analyses the phenomena of the physical, biological and human occurring at the surface of the Earth, and, therefore, modifying our environment and our way of life.

It is an interface between the physical world, as conceived by Alexander von Humboldt, and the human world, more developed by Elisée Reclus and Paul Vidal de la Blache. This gives it an epistemological character particular. Moreover, as the story is centered on the time, the geography is focused on the space. For us, there is not a climate, its biodiversity, that one ecosystem. These words and concepts must be clarified, regionalized, drawn to scale, and studied in the same field.

What recommendations would you make to better understand the anthropocene ?

P. P. : The anthropocene, or era of the human, it is the geological period present, begun at the end of the XVIIIe with the industrial revolution, and that has been very much shaped by human activities, according to the creators of the concept, the chemistry of the atmosphere, Paul Crutzen and biologist Eugene Stoermer at the end of the 1990s. That we approve of it or not the term, it has the merit to relaunch the reflection on the relationship between nature and society, between observation science and political action, through an approach based on spatial and territorial.

A complex debate and, as has been said, not very balanced. With the power of their instruments of measurement and modelling, the hard sciences tend to impose, to the detriment of the land and the human. But it is known that the excesses scholarly can quickly lead to vague policies. For a better understanding of what is the anthropocene, it is necessary to hold the two ends of the chain, from the physical world to that of the human. It is also necessary to review the dichotomy between nature and culture, is increasingly called into question, and think about a new relationship between the two.

In the Ardèche, interruption of the site’s controversial Our Lady of the Snows

The sanctuary project-supported by the Missionary family of Our Lady to Saint-Pierre-de-Colombier, in the valley of the ardèche department of Bourges, should not see the light of day in the immediate future. After the préfète of the Ardèche had proposed, Tuesday, June 16, expertise to investigate the environmental impact of the works on the river below, the religious community has finally, decided two days later, to interrupt the site until October 1, 2020.

In the Face of the protest of the defenders of the environment, the religious, in an effort of appeasement, want to take back ” a mature dialogue with the Regional Natural Park in order to ensure an optimum protection of the environment “, indicates a communiqué from the prefecture, published on Thursday 18 June.

→ TO READ. Controversy around the construction of a sanctuary in the Ardèche

In march 2018, the missionary Family of Our Lady – religious community of diocesan right – had obtained a permit from the State to build a chapel of 3 500 seats, a centre for the reception of his pilgrims, and a kiss. A first phase of construction had already been launched, with the construction of a bridge to span the river from the village of Saint-Pierre-de-Colombier and give access to the future chapel.

A failure of the State

This ambitious project raises the wrath of several residents, as the group of Friend.es of Bourges, formed against the project, and the association of ” the future of the valley of the Bourges “. The activists fear that these new constructions have a negative impact on the environment of the valley, composed of protected species, and four hectares of farm land. For the missionary Family of Our Lady, these fears are unfounded :” We have received assistance from an architect of buildings of France to integrate the project to its natural surroundings, and he congratulated us for having applied his advice “ensures the father superior, Bernard Domini.

But activists accuse the State of violations in the granting of his permit to build. They believe that the site, ranked in the protected area of the Natural Regional Park of Monts d’ardèche, should have been the object of environmental expertise.

Political support

The protest movement has gained momentum in recent days. During the weekend of June 13, a crowd of about fifty people demonstrated in front of the site, and some have invested in the area of construction of the bridge, before being evacuated by the forces of law and order. The protesters have received support from political figures as Michèle Rivasi, mep Europe Ecology the Greens and Florence Cerbaï, elected ecologist of the Region-Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes. For its part, the missionary Family of Our Lady denounced the damage, committed on its site by the activists zadistes, and has announced that it lodged a complaint.

To appease the conflict, the préfète of the Ardèche, Françoise Souliman, has, therefore, met Tuesday, June 16, the religious congregation and its opponents. She has publicly acknowledged that some mistakes had been committed by the State in the allocation process of the permits and has proposed an environmental expertise. If the missionary Family of Our Lady has accepted the office, the proposal, the collective Friend.es of the Bourges conditioned its agreement to the suspension of the entire work. ” This is the first time that the State recognizes a failure in this case “says Sylvain Herenguel, an activist of the collective.

The collective reservations about this impact study, conducted as a part of the constructions have already been carried out. The second part of the work of Our Lady of the Snows for a chapel, there is, as far as it not yet been started. According to the missionary Family of Our Lady, it must receive the approval of Archbishop Jean-Louis Balsa wood, bishop of the diocese of Viviers, but the negotiations are still ongoing. Contacted by The Crossthe diocese did not wish to communicate on the subject.

“Leaders pass from the stage of awareness to one of the transformation “

The Cross : Five years after the publication of the encyclical “Laudato si'”, how do you perceive its reception in the world of business ?

Philippe Royer : It is really prophetic. I want to show that, five years after its publication, it has become more and more reactions. She also has the distinction of making the bridge with very different people, regardless of their spiritual sensitivity.

“Laudato si’ “was asked five years ago of the issues that remain, more than ever of topical interest, such as, for example, the link between energy consumption and growth, the urgency of social and environmental, global warming and its consequences and the issue of solidarity of the North towards the South ; while laying a rupture, pointing to the fact that” everything is connected “.

Within Entrepreneurs and christian leaders (EDC), these themes have joined us and have aroused the enthusiasm of the. We believe particularly in the intuition of the pope on the “building of leadership” for the world is changing. It is not necessary to expect that the only other change but to engage a strong awareness that leaders rise up to become actors of the communal house.

The pope launches a call to conversion for each one to put his intelligence in motion, in order to offer future generations a world that is enjoyable and sustainable. During our lifetime, we are as managers, do we behave not as consumers who plunder the natural reserves.

The encyclical also calls for profound changes in the economic sphere, the extent to which meeting does it have resistance ?

Philippe Royer : In fact, there may be resistance. This is why our next national conference, 30 October to 1er November, have for theme : “Undertake for the common house “. It is to reconcile the entrepreneurial spirit – which we also called the pope — and the protection of the planet.

The encyclical encourages us not to remain fixed but to realize that as an entrepreneur, the inclusion of the most fragile, and respect for the planet can no longer be options. It is necessary to denounce the inequalities of the capitalist system and do understand that you can lose a bit of profitability in the short term for better in a sustainable way.

When I see that the twenty-five largest vessels of maritime transport consume energy to the equivalent of several million cars, I say to myself that this is no longer tenable, that it is necessary to boost production, national and local, thinking of relocating. Similarly, the encyclical invites us to consume less to go towards more sobriety happy to find better links.

But how to act in a concrete way ?

Philippe Royer : We encourage our members to take strong decisions. For example, near Roanne, the leaders of the weavings of Charlieu (Loire) have refused to produce in China at a lower cost and today, the company works well. Some show that it is possible. Leaders pass from the stage of awareness to that of the transformation.

I can also cite the example of Danone, which is for me a good news, even if the company is not perfect. CEO Emmanuel Faber wants to make it a company mission that is required to write an annual report explaining how it contributes to the common good.

The society must ensure to support all those who decide to change because companies have a societal responsibility. The EDC, we believe, particularly for the benefit of redefining the reason for being of the enterprise and particularly to come out of the opposition between the apostles of unbridled growth and those of degrowth radical.

Five years after the publication of the encyclical, what is there to do ?

Philippe Royer : First, I believe that one thing can make changing leaders : their children and grandchildren. To take my personal example, when I was talking about the growth of my group, that did not interest him much. On the other hand, when I tell them that we concourons to agriculture, low-carbon or relocating, then, it attracts their attention.

Overall, for most young people, the sense of their business is first. It is up to us to make a place for them. They will help us make progress because they are more consistent than we, the legalists of the growth.

Furthermore, a job remains to be carried out to reach non-christians. The encyclical continues to find an echo among people of all spiritualities. Christians must offer this encyclical to the world, respecting the otherness. It is not only for us.

The end of the receipt you printed is already programmed

They hang out in the portfolios, creases, and usually end up in the trash. The bills have a useful life of less than a few seconds. But they have a major impact on the environment. With 30 billion impressions each year in France, they would be at the origin of the slaughter of 2.5 million trees, and the waste of 950 million litres of water, depending on the start-up GreenTicket, which has developed an application intended to dematerialize the receipts.

“A law exists, but very few consumers know it,”note Alexander Henry, co-founder of GreenTicket. Since 11 February, the article 541-15-10 of the code of the environment confirms the disappearance of the receipts by less than three years, in the framework of the anti-waste. It prohibits the printing and distribution “systematic “ of receipts, credit card, and purchase 1er January 2023.

A disappearance in three time

The implementation should be done gradually. The modalities will be fixed by decree in the year. But they might be similar to those passed by the national Assembly in late 2019 : a delete for amounts below € 10 from next September, then 20 € to the 1er January 2021, and € 30 to the horizon of the 1er January 2022. The client may, on the other hand, always ask for a paper receipt.

Of major brands such as Promod, Uniqlo or Etam already offer to customers to receive their receipt by email. Izac, a chain of ready-to-wear masculine, has also put this in place two years ago. Its consumption of paper receipts has since decreased by 30% to 40%. The Casino group has developed its own app, which now has more than 2.5 million downloads.

To the ticket digital

“More and more customers are sensitive to the issues. The period post-confinement also strengthens the desire to limit contacts and to promote social distance “note Sydney Benros, director of the network of stores Izac.

The phenomenon is still in the other hand “too limited “ for small merchants, judge Lionel Saugues, vice-president of the French Federation of traders ‘ associations (FFAC), convinced of the need to migrate to digital solutions to replace the receipts. “The scan also has an interest in marketing. It allows the merchants to build a customer file and, ultimately, to launch common campaigns of promotion, particularly in city centres “supports-t-it.

Keep ownership of its data

But the brakes remain, particularly among the self-employed. Software fund are not always equipped to transmit the received. And many face the fears of consumers.

“There is a risk to the protection of personal data “tip Raphael Bartlomé of the UFC-que choisir. With the sales cloud, customers will have to send their coordinates to the signs, which could be used for the sending of advertisements or commercial offers. “In theory, the agent cashier should explain to each consumer that signs will be in the data they collect, but it is impossible to put into practice “stresses the UFC-That to choose, which points out shortcomings in compliance with the RGPD.

“Today, sending the ticket by mail does not give confidence “supports Alexander Henry, the co-founder of GreenTicket, which has included this parameter in developing its application : “the data is encrypted and thus, secure “, he says.

The ticket is still a warranty

In a petition launched on Thursday, June 11, the start-up alert on the consequences of the ” automatic print “ receipts by signs, and demand that the reform be implemented as soon as possible.

On the customer side, there are also reserves : the willingness of a large part of them to check their purchases. The ticket is “a guarantee “ for the buyer, as explained in 60 million consumers. At Casino, “for example, it allows merchants through the security guards to check the purchases at the output of the store. This is more complicated if no receipt has been issued “, argues the group.

Either way, the consumer will still be able to get their paper receipt if they wish, even beyond the 1er January 2023.
