My planet from space : beauty and fragilityShare
2 October 2018 to 11 August 2019
Produced by: European Space Agency (ESA) in partnership with the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), Métropole de Lyon and Ville de Vaulx-en-Velin.
From space, observation satellites record the changes related to human activity occurring on our planet and play an important role in protecting natural resources, such as water, ice fields and forests.
Used for scientific purposes, the images they gather are also spectacularly beautiful. The cubist patchwork of agricultural fields, the expressionist ripples of the Sahara desert, the water colour swirls of phytoplankton are just some examples of our planet’s majestic landscapes.
Through these beautiful images, discover the fantastic diversity of the Earth’s landscapes but also the new challenges posed by climate change.

What climate changes can be observed locally and what are the risks related to rising temperatures? What actions are being taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the region, but also to adapt to these changes? How can each of us, adult or child, contribute?
