The “Fourmis Vertes” association travels the country in its converted Mobile Learning Bus to introduce people to a more ecological behaviour on a daily basis.
Both social and environmental: the urban “educology”
The goal of this project is to deconstruct the preconceptions about hygiene and cleanliness that contribute to the deterioration of water quality and the increase in environmental and sanitary risks.
The strengths of the Mobile Learning Bus
The versatility and flexibility of this initiative enable it to reach out to even the most remote audiences by working with social actors in the regions. In a playful atmosphere based on dialogue and concrete exercises, the instructors establish close and trustful ties with the inhabitants to demonstrate how everyone can benefit economically and eco-logically from adopting “soft housework” practices.
