INNOVATIVE (ECOLOGICAL) SOLUTIONS
Footprint was first exhibited at the Paris Town Hall in 2015 during the COP21 which led to the Paris Agreement. Produced by a collective of journalists named Argos, this exhibition showcases innovative ecological solutions by citizens all over the world.
Argos met these men and women who have taken the initiative to reduce their environmental footprint. In the big cities, in remote rural areas, in the mountains, on the edge of the desert, in the middle of the forest or surrounded by the ocean, the exhibition shares their daily lives to tell their stories. Whether they live on the other side of the world or close to home, they show us that humankind can occupy the planet in a different way, one that is fairer, more harmonious and sustainable.
