Vogue Italia Honors Petra Wadström for her ingenious idea of Solvatten and partnership with Fondation Seguin for the Green Haiti Project.

Solvatten uses sun and water to bring about that change. The two elements also join together in the name of this small container which, on its own, purifies and heats water in a few hours. By simply using the synergic effects of UV rays and heat to kill bacteria, Solvatten changes the life of people who live in extreme poverty, and helps to abate CO2 emissions.

Le Parc La Visite en coupe réglée
img  
Le Parc national La Visite, l'une des rares régions forestières du pays, est en passe de devenir à son tour un désert. Classé Patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, le parc est défiguré quotidiennement par des particuliers qui abattent des arbres comme s'il s'agissait de leur propre propriété. Une situation lourde de conséquences sur l'écosystème du pays.
