In the Nice RendezVous 2022 Diary Week 20 – Nature Festival

From Ostrich to Hummingbird
A podcast to adopt responsible and French consumption
69% of French people believe that the fight against climate change must go through a major change in our lifestyles. And sobriety is key. However, the often serious guilty tone of defenders of environmental causes sometimes generates anxiety. There then remains a feeling of helplessness and incapacity. Undoubtedly a middle way between warning speech and light pedagogy is to be worked for who wants to raise awareness without feeling guilty or stressing? This is precisely the approach of Delphine Raymond, host of the podcast The Ostrich and the Hummingbird, who is based in Villeneuve-Loubet. Here, fantasy is in order with the bet of a healthy and lively optimism. It does not overplay expertise. Simplicity here has bias value and rests on its proximity to the listener.

Nissa La Bella – Treasure of the Riviera
Paris Match outdoor exhibition
From May 20 to October 30, 2022
Place Garibaldi – Nice

In number 583 of Paris Match, dated June 1960, a journalist from the magazine writes “Nice immortal, it is the Baie des Anges which Raoul Dufy made in 1927 one of his most famous works. You can read the age of the city on its roofs: pink is the past – white is the color of modernism”. Almost 40 years later, in December 1999, Paris Match still praises the unique climate of the city, its incomparable light and its architecture with multiple influences. From year to year, the magazine will continue to unfold in its pages, the list of personalities seduced by this exceptional territory: politicians, heads of government and figures of royalty recharge their batteries there; while French and international artists, from the world of literature to that of music, via cinema and the plastic arts, are inspired by it.
A particular alchemy that Paris Match presents in the exhibition Nissa La Bella – Trésor de la Riviera.
