‘Cover Up’: exploring art and sustainability at the Water and Fountain Museum, Belgium

In May 2022, The Water and Fountain Museum (Ottignies, Belgium) unveils its new exhibition re-using the setting of a previous one. A former exhibition presented the underwater photographs of Harry Fayt, with pictures that are deeply linked to nature and denounce water pollution. To stay coherent with this vision, his images were printed on tarps made of recycled plastic. To push further the concept of a ‘recycled exhibition’, the museum decided to reuse the tarps as a new canvas for street artists. Thus, the ‘Cover up’ project was born. Working with Harry Fayt and the Yellow Road Gallery (a gallery specialising in street art) 14 artists have been invited to create original artworks on tarps. You can discover their work during the inauguration weekend on May 14 and 15 2022. Then, the exhibition will be accessible for free in the Bois des Rêves. More info

Training young people by stimulating their creativity on the themes of slow, accessible, and sustainable tourism are the aims of educational activities structured in two phases. In the first phase, ten selected classes will benefit from a series of workshops aimed at exploring the theme of eco-tourism along the historic routes of river navigation: from the Po Delta River to the medieval canals of the Euganean Hills, from the Venice Lagoon to the Venetian Eastern coastline. Through guided excursions by bike, on foot, and aboard traditional boats, students will discover the natural and cultural heritage of water as a 'resource for the quality of slow tourism and sustainable development'. In the second phase, students will be supported by the Communication Team of the Global Network of Water Museums to produce videos and short films using the stop-motion technique. The most deserving videos will participate in The Water We Want youth contest.

Floating photovoltaic systems for energy self-sufficiency
In this difficult period in which the pandemic and the war have highlighted the need for energy self-sufficiency, the Italian National association of Land Reclamation / ANBI contributes to the Italian needs through the annual production of about 697 million kilowatt hours, thanks to 242 hydroelectric plants and about 8 million kilowatt hours thanks to 110 photovoltaic plants. ANBI promotes a new project with photovoltaic systems floating on the waters of the reservoirs to ensure greater efficiency than those “on the ground”: greater refraction is guaranteed by the proximity to water, with less overheating, and therefore greater productivity. This system also reduces the formation of algae, thus improving the quality of the water resource intended for irrigation.
