    Is Climate Change the next Big Populist Cause? 

    Thur 24 June / Ideas / 6:30 - 8:30 PM

    There is no consensus among Europeans on the need to address climate change. A careful analysis of how protagonists are using social media suggests that not only are they not engaging with each other, but that there is huge potential for climate change policy making in Europe to further fragment our political landscape. Fieschi's latest research suggest that it  could leave the way open for populists to take up the mantle of freedom fighters while climate supporters become more authoritarian. Unpack the meaning and political consequences of the latest research with us.

    Catherine Fieschi is Counterpoint’s Founder and Director. A  leading European politics expert, her main focus is on populism and contemporary forms of mobilisation.

    Having successfully led UK think tank Demos from 2004 - 2008, in2011 Catherine founded Counterpoint with the aim of providing businesses, governments and NGOs with strategic insights on how to manage new forms of social and political risk and their effects on global politics and markets.  Her first objective was to draw attention to the deep social and cultural dynamics that underpin political and security risk but seldom receive the attention they deserve.

    A longstanding adviser to French political leaders and campaigns, she also advises business and political decision-makers around the world and is a senior member the Singapore Government’s Centre for Strategic Futures.

      In its Premières Scènes, the Festival invites the best chamber music ensembles of the Conservatory (classes of Muhiddin Dürrüoglu, Guy Danel, Alain de Rijckere and Bernard Wolteche) to perform on the Full Circle stage. Among these young musicians, a jury of professionals chooses the Festival Musiq3 Prize, which will perform the following year as part of the Festival.
