Anthropologist Boris Lelong shares his expertise on contemporary issues such as globalization, democratic aspirations, cultural diversity and ecology.
A graduate from EHESS, anthropologist Boris Lelong, has been exploring for more than 25 years the interactions between globalisation and local communities in very diverse cultures: the Himalayas, Madagascar, the Philippines, Southern Africa, the Sahara, Seine-Saint-Denis, etc. Observing how, throughout the world, humans live among themselves and with their environment, he proposes ways of responding to the major challenge facing us: how can we better live together on our planet, today and tomorrow?
Combining human sciences and creative projects, he has carried out a series of innovative cultural research and action initiatives with communities of various sizes (from villages to large cities). His work has been critically acclaimed and has received various awards (Académie Charles Cros, Télérama, Inrockuptibles, etc.) and his ten-year collaboration with Saint-Denis (93) was awarded the interministerial label Bien Vieillir Vivre Ensemble.
