The need for a real insurrection of conscience
Benefiting from the support and involvement of a large number of personalities recognized internationally for their involvement in the defense of the environment or issues such as the promotion of peace, Yannick Monget wanted to endow the group with a prestigious ethics committee. With the help and support of several friends, foremost among them botanist Jean-Marie Pelt but also lawyer and former French Minister of the Environment Corinne Lepage, astronaut Jean-François Clervoy, architect Jacques Rougerie, aviator Gérard Feldzer, sociologist Nathalie Meusy, he began to lay the foundations of what recently became a full-fledged entity within “Symbiom”. This think-tank works today for an ethical governance of our society. Bringing a new perspective, an analysis and a new expertise concerning the necessary changes to be made to our systems and political choices, this approach is part of the observation of an obvious dichotomy between, on the one hand, the technological power acquired in recent decades by humanity, and, on the other hand, the dangerous ethical, moral and philosophical deficiency of our modes of governance.
