A Changing Planet

Storms, volcanic eruptions, fires and climate changes have impacted Earth since the dawn of time. It is in this context that life appeared and diversified, because nature is resilient. It has the ability to cope with disruptions. When these changes become too intense or too frequent, however, the recovery gets more complicated, time grows short.


Since it appeared, the human species has acted as a new factor of change. Through our activities and our behaviours, we interfere too much on the large ‘planetary network’.

Visiting the lower floor of Living Planet helps you understand the issues linked to climate change and the biodiversity crisis we are facing and that concerns us all.
