The shift has already begun. In California, certain areas are being abandoned by insurers. In France, drought, storms, and floods also threaten the insurability of certain risks. These phenomena, among others, highlight the need to transition to a post-growth society, one that subordinates its economic goals to respecting planetary boundaries and fundamental social needs.

How to act? Act to preserve the insurability of properties and activities, and also to enable insurance to play a crucial role in the necessary transition.

Initiatives already exist. They involve prevention, adaptation, or regeneration… These innovative actions can inspire others, and their widespread adoption can actively contribute to the transition.

The MAPMONDES chair (measuring differently for a sustainable and viable world), initiated and co-founded by SeaBird Impact, is pleased to invite you to a conference on Tuesday, June 18, featuring stakeholders who have undertaken these concrete initiatives.

These actions are part of a study, which will be published during this conference, conducted by SeaBird Impact and Prophil in partnership with Matmut, Maif, Groupama, Tikehau Capital, and Axa Climate as part of the research conducted by the MAPMONDES chair.
