The Alliance Française de Perth will organise a conference presented by Alain Pavé and Bruno Cédat about the notion of biodiversity and its scientific and social meaning. Alain Pavé is a French emeritus university professor, member of the Academy of Technology and former director of the CNRS Amazonian Program in French Guyana. He is specialised in the dynamic of biodiversity, biology, in both theorical and progressive ecology and in the science of the environment.
This conference will be based on Bruno Cédat's documentary, the Goolarabooloo between nature and tradition. Biodiversity and ecosystem.

In August 2010, Bruno Cédat spent some time in an Aboriginal community in the Kimberleys, Western Australia, to film a documentary about diversity. This project led him to meet scientists, biodiversity and ecosystems restoration specialists. Assisted by French scientist, Alain Pavé and Kingley Dixon, Director of the botanic garden in Perth, Bruno Cedat's documentary reveals the biological wealth of Western Australia and the privileged relations of the Aboriginal with environment.

This debate will increase the awareness of the public towards environmental thematic through an educational documentary.
