“Living in an extended ecosystem” by the Centre Teilhard de Chardin. How can we make different realities live together and organize them into relevant and efficient networks, each one following its own logic?

This is the challenge of a seminar on “Integral Ecology” organized by “Centre Teilhard de Chardin” and of which this book takes up the first works.

This reflection was developed in the context of the proposed development of the “Plateau de Saclay”, south of Paris, and integrates an ecological approach postulating that everything operates as a system or, put differently, that everything is linked. The development of the “Plateau de Saclay” is in fact an immense human, economic and scientific project to bring together schools, research & innovation centers and industries in a formerly agricultural area of Saclay. The challenge is to organize them as much as possible into networks so that they can benefit from each other’s assets and ideas, using the most modern technologies and respecting the environment.

The multidisciplinary team of the Integral Ecology seminar has developed the notion of extended ecosystem as a key to understanding what a human and natural ecosystem represents. But also as a methodological tool to approach Integral Ecology. With this notion of extended ecosystem, ecology can be understood as the bringing together of different actors and the implementation of a methodology to accompany their interaction for the benefit of everyone.
