Yannick Monget is an author, futurist, specialized in issues related to the contemporary environmental crisis and founder of the Symbiom Committee, which brings together many international personalities committed to the promotion of peace and the protection of the environment, and of the eponymous group, created with the aim of raising awareness among the general public, as well as decision-makers, of contemporary environmental issues and developing alternative solutions to deal with them. Author of several books on the future of our planet based on the work of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and translated into many languages, his work is regularly used by the international media. His books have been the subject of several adaptations in the form of major exhibitions presented in many cities around the world by the Symbiom group. He lives in Metz, France.

The idea came to me to solicit, for the realization of this work, personalities with whom I consider myself lucky to have crossed the road and with whom, for many of them, I have established close ties of friendship, within the Symbiom Committee, which we have founded around these fundamental themes of reflection on our civilizational future. It is very likely that you know most of these personalities for their public commitments, their achievements, or their knowledge, their philosophy and their spiritual approach to the themes addressed by the book. All these personalities share a real interest in the protection of our planet, its biodiversity, and therefore of humanity. I thank them very much for their contribution to the production of this book. Yannick Monget
