Baveno Eco Challenge: the eco-friendly adventure on Lake Maggiore

eco

Baveno Eco Challenge is the eco-friendly adventure where the waste becomes a resource! The City of Baveno with this challenge, gives all citizens, tourists and visitors the opportunity to become protagonists of a social event.

We Would like to promote measures for waste reduction.

The event will consist of two phases: During the first phase, from January to August, citizenship can join the project by collecting plastic bottles. The storage of the plastic bottles will occur in the base modules (18 bottles) With the basic modules you can build the ecological rafts. The second phase will take place in September:

Sunday, September 1, 2013 – “Baveno Eco Race” where the ecological rafts (composed of empty plastic bottles) with their crews, will race on the lake to have fun and win the prize category.

Sunday, September 8, 2013 – “Baveno Eco Bridge” eco rafts already used in “eco Baveno race” will be joined on the lake to build a floating bridge, at least 100 meters long.

The challenge is to create the cheaper, lighter and longest walking bridge in the world, built with recyclable materials without any costs. We would like to bring Baveno in the Guinness World Records!!!
