RST – La 1ere : Philo d’un mot

J’étais l’un des invités de l’émission « Philo d’un mot » sur RTS – La 1ere pour parler du hasard. Je vous invite à découvrir cette excellente émission conjuguant perspectives mathématiques, philosophiques, artistiques et politiques. 

Par ailleurs, je vous invite à vous abonner à l’excellente chaîne Youtube de l’invité mathématicien de l’émission, Lê Nguyên Houang, intitulée “Science4All”.

Search for Common Ground

As part of the DIAPHORA project, I am starting a three-month internship in the non-governmental organization Search for Common Ground, based in Brussels (Belgium).

This organization partners with people around the world to ignite shared solutions to destructive conflicts. It works at all levels of society to build sustainable peace through three main avenues: dialogue, media and community.
