Discussing solutions to fight plastic pollution
From August 29 to the beginning of October, the Plastic Odyssey Village will set up shop in six French cities to display its traveling exhibition on plastic pollution. More than a simple exhibition, these events will address the issues of this pollution and give the floor to local initiatives that are trying to curb the problem in their own way and raise awareness.
“Our will is to propose the most eclectic program possible in order to attract a maximum of people to come, learn more and exchange on the issue of plastic pollution. We want to understand the subject in all its forms, combining arts and science, young and old, companies and NGOs” underlines Anouck Dargent, responsible for the Tour de France for Plastic Odyssey. The program will include an exhibition for the general public, conferences, concerts, screenings, shows, debates, radio shows, collection activities, demonstrations, etc.
Thanks to the numerous partners in each city, the programming will be also unique and tinted of the stakes, the folklore and the local initiatives. In addition, the program is entirely free: the Plastic Odyssey Village Tour de France is a must-attend event this fall.
