Wake up...
Race for Water on France Télévision, it’s from tomorrow, at 7:20am, on Télématin!
Foundation 12 November 2018

Tomorrow, at 7:20am, on Télématin...

Eric Loizeau, emeritus ambassador of our Foundation, is guest speaker once again for our odyssey. Over the course of five episodes, he tells of Race for Water’s latest stopovers in the Pacific. Switch onto Télématin, the morning show on France 2, presented by Laurent Bignolas, from tomorrow and then once a week through until the season of goodwill!

The first of these reports, broadcast on Tuesday 13 November at 7:20am, will review Race for Water’s trip to Easter Island.

Pitch: The history between the Rapa Nui from Easter Island and the Race for Water Foundation dates back to May 2015, during the passage of the first odyssey to the island with the objective at the time of drawing up an accurate analysis of the plastic pollution of our oceans according to NOAA protocol, which was applied to each of the beaches on the islands visited. Since this trip, the Foundation’s teams have remained in regular contact with the local authorities and managers, in order to continue envisaging the best possible solutions geared around the problems and constraints of this island at the ends of the earth. Easter Island, which played host to the Race for Water vessel and her teams for ten days back in August, ranks among the key sites for the Foundation in terms of the implementation of the Biogreen solution by ETIA, which enables the optimal conversion of all types of plastic waste into electric energy. 

Four other meetings will follow… 

On the programme: our stopover in French Polynesia, sailing in the Pacific aboard a vessel that is the ambassador of energy transition, our stopover in the islands of Samoa and Tonga, rounding off with the Race for Water’s arrival in the islands of Fiji for the Christmas and New Year celebrations. 

Wake up with a smile with Télématin and the Race for Water Odyssey!
