Hyperbaric pressure, return: Marseille Science Bar is back at the Zoumai brewery

Thus, four meetings are organized for the exchange with the researchers of the Science Observatory of the Pythéas Space Institute. During the discussion, they share the latest developments in their research while answering questions from the public.

An opportunity to better understand the processes involved and the consequences of this change in our societies and the measures that can be taken to limit the negative impacts. Scientists from various fields will come and talk about their current and future research.

The principle remains unchanged, after a short presentation of the topic and problem by scientists, space will be given for exchange. During these exchanges, led by Pauline Castaing, scientific mediator of Bleu Tomate, an information network dedicated to the ecological transition in Provence, everyone will be able to express their point of view, argue or ask questions. With a beer in hand and a smile on their face, scientists will be there to illuminate the discussion with their expertise, breaking the distance between the sciences and the participants.

Because it is important to mobilize to protect our planet, OSU Institut Pythéas researchers, Bleu Tomate teams, as well as the NGO Surfrider Foundation Méditerranée will be partners in this new edition of Pressure Hyperbar. We can give examples of actions we can take individually and collectively on a daily basis… but if you have good actions to share, this is the time.

Zoumaï brasserie, a stone’s throw from Castellane square, will once again host Pressure HyperBar until March… session 3 starts on January 10th. So, Four Science Bars – Afterworks – are already scheduled for Tuesdays 10th January, 7th February and 7th March 2023 at 19:00… So many moments where science and relaxation will be part of the game.

Brasserie Zoumaï, 7, Cours Gouffé – 13006 Marseille.

Hyperbaric pressure: in the program

These species from other places on January 10 at 19.00.

Rabbitfish, electric ants…? Where do these species come from? Why do they come to our area? What effects might they have on Mediterranean ecosystems? Many questions will be developed during this science bar. With Professor Thierry Thibout, University of Aix-Marseille, Institute of Mediterranean Oceanology [1] (MIO-OSU Pythéas Institute / CNRS, AMU, IRD, Inrae), Olivier Blight, lecturer at the University of Avignon at the Institute of Mediterranean Biodiversity and Marine and Continental Ecology [2] (Imbe- OSU Institut Pythéas / CNRS, AMU, IRD, Inrae).

Demography and climate change: what connections? February 7 at 7:00 p.m.

For some time now, we have heard the thesis that to combat global warming, we should stop having children, or at least keep the birth rate under control. But where does this thesis come from? Is it really built? Come and talk to two researchers to find out!

Bénédicte Gastineau, IRD researcher at the Population Environment Development Laboratory [3] (LPED – OSU Institut Pythéas /CNRS, AMU, IRD, Inrae), Joël Guiot, CNRS Research Director, European Center for Research and Education in Environmental Geology [4] (Cerege – OSU Institut Pythéas/CNRS, ATU, IRD, Inrae).

Volatile organic compounds: the secret language of living organisms. March 7, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.

Volatile organic compounds are small molecules essential in the interactions between living organisms and their environment. Plants, algae, corals, soil organisms… Come and discover their secret language and their role in atmospheric chemistry, from the bottom of the oceans to the tops of the trees. With Salomé Coquin, Thibaud Legros, Justine Laoue – all three PhD students at Aix-Marseille University at the Institute of Mediterranean Biodiversity and Marine and Continental Ecology.

Tomato Blue

Across the board, men and women are thinking outside the box to commit, innovate and act in different, more sustainable ways. Every day, initiatives are born on the ground in all sectors. Individual or collective, they bear witness to the real speed that Bleu Tomate transmits.

Bleu Tomate, an editorial agency dedicated to both media and ecological transition, highlights the area’s actors who favor biodiversity, proximity, naturalness…
