2011-12-07

Robert Lion graduated from Sciences-Po Paris and, in 1961, from the French National School of Administration (ENA). He is a former high-ranking official in the French administration, a former business leader and a political and ecological activist. Robert Lion is now Dean of the Regional Council of Ile de France, as a member of the ecologist group.

Robert Lion tells us about his rich career as a public servant, as a political and ecological activist and as a business leader. He passionately shares with us his experiences in leadership and in the organization of the decision making processes in companies. He ends his talk on the necessary ecological conversion of companies and of the public sphere today, in the context of a deep, complex and multi-dimensional crisis.
