In the giant labyrinth designed by Gad Weil using recycled paper balls provided by Veolia, visitors will be invited to answer circular economy riddles. Visitors will also be able to make a wish on the "wishing trees for nature", or participate in workshops focusing on sorting waste, composting, and the water cycle.
La Recyclerie, in which Veolia is the main partner, will also offer several educational activities: how to make a mini-vegetable garden and seed bombs, and a demonstration of aquaponics (a growing technique that recreates a miniature ecosystem in an aquarium plants).
The creative artist behind this ephemeral vegetation, Gad Weil, explains: "Nature has evolved with humankind and would not have the same. Nevertheless, it is not necessary to forget the responsibility of owes to nature and that it has to protect it for future generations… For BiodiversiTerre, a world first labyrinth formed by paper balls plunges visitors into a rural universe.”
