1 – ART
Since 2009, in its search for a sensitive and innovative approach to sustainable development, 1.618 has been giving a voice to contemporary art to help visitors better understand and decipher the issues facing the world today.
With the help of exhibition curators, we select works that touch and challenge visitors on the issues of sustainable development. Produced by the association BEAU.BEAU, the exhibition sets the stage for a sensitive reflection on the imperative need to preserve what is precious, to change the way we look at the world around us, or to become aware of the issues related to climate change.
After climate, water, waste, time and over-consumption, the theme of 2023 is primary forests.
2 – STAKES
Based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations for 2030, this space aims to raise visitors’ awareness of the priority issues of fashion, design, jewellery, beauty, mobility, gastronomy and travel.
In a very playful presentation, the aim is to understand the environmental (climate, biodiversity) and social (employment, know-how, education) impacts of all the Art de Vivre sectors.
3 – ALTERNATIVES
To accelerate the transition towards new modes of production or consumption, 1.618 Paris selects alternatives that provide concrete and desirable answers to the priority issues of their sector.
Validated by a committee of independent experts, these brands, materials and services (rental, second-hand, upcycling) stand out for their commitment, innovation and creativity.
They are on board:
Champagne Leclerc Briant
La Fabrique du Futur
The City of Paris
The Ministry of Culture
The Ministry of Ecological Transition
The Ministry of the Economy
Paris Good Fashion
4 – PROSPECTIVE
To create a positive momentum – for each visitor and collectively – the association BEAU.BEAU. and La Fabrique des Futurs propose an experience of ideation of a desirable future.
5 – WALK (THE TALKS)
1.618 Paris encourages initiatives that illustrate the expression Walk the talk (« From words to actions »).
In order to deepen the subjects dealt with along the way (art exhibition on primary forests, priority issues of the 7 Art de Vivre sectors, consumption and production alternatives, prospective experience), a programme of conferences, round tables and screenings is proposed in the 250-seat auditorium.
An opportunity to exchange with inspiring speakers, committed entrepreneurs, visionary artists and professionals who are moving the lines.
In order to reduce the environmental impact of its Event, 1.618 Paris uses eco-design and carries out a carbon assessment of the project.
Recognized since the beginning for its responsible and innovative scenographies, favouring a later re-use, the 1.618 Event intends to demonstrate that aesthetic requirements and sustainable commitment must meet and chooses in 2023 :
– a date : World Environment Day
– a place: the Carreau du Temple
(currently undergoing ISO 20-121 certification)
– a committed production agency
To push the ambition towards maximum circularity even further, the scenography this year will be based on a strong concept : to use only elements already produced by the luxury industry and without a determined use: dead stocks, scraps, waste, tests or prototypes destined for destruction, obsolete or defective packaging, window or event decorations, POS material, etc.
The selection criteria
We are neither a label nor a certification. As society’s expectations have changed, we have chosen, since 2009, to promote only companies whose approaches and ethical values are sincere and validated by our experts.
Environmental impact and energy consumption
Eco-design of packaging
Product life cycle
Ethical and social commitments
Sourcing, traceability and responsible supply chains
Preservation of crafts and know-how
