Brasserie Le Dôme, 2 avenue Georges Clémenceau in Montpellier

Although we have never been so well informed, society is paradoxically faced with a massive phenomenon of misinformation. Faced with this overabundance of information, sometimes erroneous, critical thinking is a major challenge.
Our society is faced with the challenges of public health, sustainable development and mass information. In order to make informed choices in these and other areas, it is necessary to be able to distinguish between knowledge and opinion, but also to differentiate between information that is trustworthy and information that is not sufficiently reliable.

Developing a critical mind allows one to go beyond stereotypes, prejudices, preconceived ideas and intuitive evidence in order to avoid the mere expression of an opinion as a judgement.

To discuss this science and society topic, two multidisciplinary experts will answer live questions from the audience:

  • Gabriela Litre, PhD in Geography and Sustainable Development, Associate Researcher on Global Environmental Change and Public Policy at the University of Brasilia, Visiting Scientist at MUSE (Montpellier University of Excellence).
  • Agnès Perrin-Doucey, Director of the Faculty of Education (University of Montpellier), Lecturer in French language and literature.
