The project

The Globactif Project is a journey through a couple of developping countries to find and then promote innovative eco-friendly solutions. Our fields of study are: waste treatment, water treatment, alternative/renewable energies, transportation, eco-building and education. In this way, we meet and interview NGOs, schools, companies, governments, entrepreneurs, grassroot innovators, etc. In other words, every actor of sustainable development. After this 10-months trip, the project will not just simply cease. In fact, we plan to make some conferences in France in front of high schools and companies. We will also write a book about the solutions and the sustainable practises we discovered. Finally, we are going work with some elementary schools of our native city, Fontenay-le-Comte, to teach and make them sensitive to the sustainable development.
