<span>2000</span> . Imagination

2000 . Imagination

SATURDAY 21st AND SUNDAY 22nd OCTOBER 2000

To celebrate the year 2000 in its own way, the Cité de la réussite organizes 60 debates that take place in the whole Latin quarter of Paris : the Panthéon Sorbonne University, the Odéon Theater, The Lycée Louis le Grand and the Sorbonne premises .

For the symbolic value of the year 2000, the Cité de la réussite wished to put imagination at the heart of this global debate.

Imagination is probably the most striking and fundamental characteristic setting the human race apart from other living species. It is this magical blend of human consciousness and the unconscious which has made the world progress since the very origins of humankind. This particular characteristic has led humankind to develop the world as we know it today.

No one can say what it will be like tomorrow. The only certainty is that it will be the product of the imagination we use today.
