The former presenter of Ushuaia and ecologist Nicolas Hulot held Saturday a conference on the theme: "the 21st century will be ecological or will not," at the international fair of the book of Pailles, in the Northwest of the island of Mauritius.
 
Nicolas Hulot who created his Foundation recalled that as early as 2007, the latter helped the establishment on the island of Mauritius Island Durable (MID) concept by sending a consultant for six months with the local authorities concerned.
 
Nicolas Hulot also said having talked since his arrival on the island, last week, with the Foreign Minister Arvin Boolell, Deva Virahsawmy, in charge of the Ministry of the environment.

Climate issues were at the heart of these meetings, and in particular the importance for Mauritius to push some small island States and the African continent to participate in the world conference on climate which will take place in Paris in December 2015. 

According to Nicolas Hulot, it is essential that Mauritius is working with regional and other partners on issues related to biodiversity, desertification and the oceanic issue as well as on the contribution of renewable energy on the island.
 
Nicolas Hulot also objected in any logic in the construction of a coal-fired station of CT Power by a Malaysian developer for the production of electricity on the advanced site - les-Caves at Albion, as indicated in the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
