In March 2020, France entered anxiously and disbelievingly into a strict lockdown period that was supposed to last two weeks but would end up lasting eight. In July 2020, the ESEC adopted its Annual Report on the State of France (RAEF), which attempted to describe the state of shock the country had been plunged into by the Covid-19 pandemic. It warned of the need to support the economy and society in the medium term by seizing this moment to change course and
firmly prioritise human capacities in favour of a non-punitive ecological transition.
