Château-d'Œx - Nature
This conference invites us to revisit the place of trees in our daily lives, not only as a sustainable resource and a place to recharge our batteries, but also on a global scale, as trees can be precious allies in the face of climate change.
Ernst Zürcher is a forest engineer, doctor of natural sciences, researcher and professor of wood sciences (HES Berne) and lecturer at the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Lausanne and Zurich. Ernst Zürcher is also a walker who has walked through forests all over the world, from his native Switzerland to the Amazon.
Ernst Zürcher draws on scientific knowledge, but also on history and popular cultures, to help people understand the connections between people and trees. He surprises us by telling us how trees and forests function as organisms.
Discovering an otherness in solidarity with trees, which hold the power to regreen the earth and regenerate its inhabitants.
