A foundation
to preserve water

Water Pavillion

qui sommes nous

Learn about water preservation at the WATER PAVILION!

At the WATER PAVILION, the Foundation seeks to showcase the problems linked to water preservation, to share experiences and to offer solutions in an educational yet fun environment.

The WATER PAVILION aims to promote ocean and freshwater conservation, through resource management and awareness of our water footprint.

The WATER PAVILION offers an interactive zone, an educational journey, exhibitions, films, networking areas, games and workshops.

The Foundation seeks to give visitors of all ages a global perspective on the challenge. The exhibition targets adults, children, families, companies and institutions. The philosophy behind the WATER PAVILION is sustainability. The WATER PAVILION is mobile and easy to set up at the heart of public events. 

Its strategic positioning at the heart of race villages means the pavilion can:

  • Raise awareness of the necessity to preserve water
  • Counteract the general lack of knowledge and understanding of the causes and consequences of humanitarian and environmental issues linked to water shortage and the disruption of ocean ecosystems
  • Teach people to respect water, a limited natural resource, and show them how to avoid pollution and waste
  • Learn about water and how to protect it while being entertained!

AN ECO-DESIGN:

  • Construction materials are predominantly recycled or from renewable sources and easily recyclable (the origin is clearly identified)
  • Fastenings, glues and finishes will not prevent the separation of the various materials and will not affect their recyclability or energy value
  • Through research, a minimum amount of materials have been used, with minimum production waste
  • An inflatable structure was chosen for its low volume for transportation and storage
  • Light fittings have been selected based on low energy consumption (energy-saving bulbs, neon lights, LEDs)
  • There is an area dedicated to recycling waste generated during the course of the event (packaging materials, waste paper, food)
  • Reusable fair trade materials have been chosen (for example: furniture that can be donated to associations or businesses)
