We are also working on themes. For example, the next major exhibition to open in September is entitled "Environmental Injustice - Indigenous Alternatives and it is entirely devoted to the point of view of indigenous peoples on the impact of environmental changes on their population and in particular on the injustices that this generates.
Does the museum necessarily have to grow, i.e. have more resources, put more money in, do more things, or does it have to be more relevant and have more impact? This does not necessarily require more resources.

It would be utopian to go back a few centuries and return to a period of pre-colonisation. The colonisation of the world by Europe, which successively saw the development of slave plantations, the development of the coal, steel and railway industries, which enabled further colonisation. Then extractivism, the development of mining, which allowed the development of world trade to the advantage mainly of Europe and North America and which is the main cause of the destruction of both the environment and cultural diversity in the world. So the utopia would be to be able to go back in time and avoid this colonial process which is at the origin of most of the degradation of the ecosystems because this colonisation with what it brought in terms of development of production and therefore consumption, consumer goods but also food and the associated sciences, caused this demographic explosion that the earth can no longer sustain.
