Centre de formation sur l’environnement et la société

Bienvenue au site du CERES

IMG/png/ens_logo_tl.pngCERES is an interdisciplinary teaching center, within the Ecole Normale Supérieure, for the study of environmental questions. Here "environment" is defined in a wide sense as humanity’s environment, with its physical and societal components, its past, present and future states. Understanding the environment and predicting its dynamics calls on a wide range of sciences and humanities, including the geosciences, ecology, physics, chemistry, geography, economics, sociology and philosophy. Main themes of the CERES are interactions between climate, biosphere and society. We focus on feedbacks between climate and society including the economy, climate and the biosphere, agriculture and ecology (agro-ecology), air pollution, and waste. CERES offers interdisciplinary courses and research training at undergraduate and graduate levels, and aims to facilitate interactions between people from different disciplines present in the research labs of the ENS
