> Exhibition "Satellites and World Heritage sites, partners to understand climate change"

The glaciers of Patagonia are melting, as are those of the Everest, the highest mountain on Earth. Desertification is gaining ground in Africa, and the resulting sand storms are burying and damaging the great mosques in Timbuktu, the Giza pyramids and many other sites. The exhibition shows a wide variety of climate change effects on World Heritage sites and explains the inputs provided by space technologies to understand the causes and effects of climate change on these sites.

This travelling exhibition has been realized jointly by the Belgian Science Policy Office, the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) and the Earth and Life Institute from the Université catholique de Louvain on the occasion of the International Year of Forests 2011.

Conference on WWI and National Identity
Four renowned historians will exchange views on the impact of the First World War on the Belgian and Flemish sense of national identity, a subject which continues to be of interest to academic and social debate. Indeed, many experts still see the First World War as the event which gave rise to anti-Belgian Flemish nationalism and which marked the beginning of the end of the Belgian nation state. The speakers will give brief presentations that will focus on hypotheses and the results of their research. The symposium will be opened by Minister of State Mark Eyskens while Rudi Van Doorslaer will moderate the plenary debate and the round table conference.
