Heidi Sevestre is a glaciologist and is specialized in glaciers’c dynamics. Her recent scientific expeditions have allowed her to see the extent of the concrete, unmistakable and sometimes disturbing effects of global warming. But Heidi is an optimistic who believes in the ability of each and every one of us to act. To understand in order to better act, that is the objective of her conference.
Overview of existing solutions, technological advances and realization of projects.
Ships under construction, sails in test phase, here in Nantes and Saint-Nazaire and anywhere esle in Europe and the world.
Many brands are already transitioning to wind-powered maritime transport. Other shippers have yet to be convinced. Shipowners and technology developers who will speak here, will provide evidence, and demonstrate the efficiency of wind-powered transport.
What are the obstacles holding back large-scale investment in sailing? How can they be removed? In this session, we will discuss the thoughts and expectations of investors and insurers.
Without them, without their confidence in innovation, without taking risks for the developing sector, we could well miss out on a major opportunity.

The sailing industry is rich, diverse, and brings together many players. The technological solutions are there, the sails are ready, the projects are constantly growing. So when will there be a national and European strategy, both political and economic, to support, project and coordinate this development?
In this session, we will discover different, confronting visions. In a world shaken and threatened by global warming, it is urgent to rethink consumption, transport and development models. What role for the sailing industry in these upheavals?
