About Event

The night of ideas 2020 will bring us together this year around the theme: A livable Ethiopia.

Livability: at a time of environmental crisis and major changes in our lifestyles, between permanence of rural life, accelerated development of urban life and new technologies, this theme sounds both a question and a requirement . What is living in Ethiopia today? What is a livable Ethiopia, both ecologically and politically?

We will discuss together around two big questions:

1/ Human being and his environment: between urban life and rural life, at a time of global environmental crisis, what relationship between our human communities and our environment? To what extent are we first and foremost living beings in permanent relation with our environment composed of different kinds of living beings ?

2/ The concept of livability also implies a questioning of life, not just in the biological sense, but in the normative sense. What is the expression of a livable life, of a life worth living? What forms of mobilization or collective action can come to invest this claim of livability and dignity?”
