Juste 2.0°C is an association created by students of the École Normales Supérieures in order to contribute to environmental and climate scientific projects, and to make the general public aware of their challenges.
“To contain the rise in the average temperature of the planet below 2.0 ° C compared to the pre-industrial era”
In 2015, the signing of the Paris Agreement at COP 21 marked a decisive turning point in the fight against global warming. The signatory countries pledged to limit their greenhouse gas emissions and to work for a common response to the environmental crisis. 2.0°C is becoming a global objective as well as a symbol, that of a fight for the preservation of our planet.
The fight against climatic and environmental upheavals is the major challenge of the 21st century, especially for the younger generations who will play a key role: scientific, political, but also as citizens. This is why a group of students from the École Normales Supérieures of Paris, Paris-Saclay and Lyon created the association loi 1901 Juste 2.0°C.
Juste 2.0°C aims to carry out student research projects that study the reciprocal impacts between man and his environment. Trained in scientific research within various disciplines, we consider it essential to be able to combine field practice and cross-analyses on issues such as the protection of biodiversity, global warming or human pollution.
We are also convinced that the transmission of knowledge and awareness of environmental issues must be accessible to all, especially school audiences. That's why Juste 2.0°C supports and organizes initiation projects into the scientific approach, promoting environmental sciences in the face of contemporary challenges and sparking interest in their practice from an early age.
The first project supported by the association is called Antarctique 2.0°C. It is a scientific expedition that will set sail for the Antarctic Peninsula from France across the Atlantic Ocean. The objective is to analyse the impact of the human footprint on the different ecosystems that we cross, particularly in the Atlantic and on the southern environment.
