Make a date for BiodiversiTerre from 3rd to 5th of June 2017!

Posted on 30 May 2017.

Veolia will be at the BiodiversiTerre even from 3 to 5 June 2017 – it’s an ephemeral revegetation event in avenue Foch that will raise public awareness about biodiversity and sustainable development.

During Pentecost weekend (3, 4, 5 June 2017), a 10,000 m2 plant installation will cover part of avenue Foch in Paris. Designed by Gad Weil – an artist known for his ecology-related work - BiodiversiTerre will have 6 tableaux focusing on various sustainable development themes.

The event has been organized by the City of Paris in order to raise public awareness of environmental issues. A capital city engaged in an eco-responsibility approach, Paris has mobilized all the city’s stakeholders in the project: local authorities, start-ups, large companies and, of course, Parisians!

Veolia is partnering the event and will be focusing on biodiversity and the circular economy - two topics to which the Group has been committed for some years. The centerpiece of its participation is a gigantic labyrinth made with recycled paper balls. Visitors will be able to wander around it and solve circular economy riddles. In collaboration with La Recyclerie, Veolia will also be organizing various educational workshops for families: a mini veg garden, waste sorting, composting, water cycle, etc. Children will also be invited to make a wish for nature by leaving a note on the "wishing tree".

Make a date for June 3rd !
