28 May Tour de France for the Climate — Bordeaux
On May 28 Colomban de Vargas spoke at the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce as part of the Tour de France for the Climate. At the invitation of Catherine Chabaud, Columban was able to present at a round table the latest results of Tara Oceans whose publications in Science (published May 22) and explain the importance of ocean biodiversity for French economy and industry. It was also an opportunity to share about the opportunities offered by the development of citizen science supported by new technologies. The Plankton Planet program through its pilot project is a perfect illustration combining sailing and hight genetic sequencing of plankton.
