    September 2015: A huge mail box on wheels

    The last horse-driven carriage from Paris has been transformed into a vegetalized messaging carriage.

    This carriage belongs to the mail man’s daughters, a group that helps the environment by recycling = creating.

    The carriage holds postal-art workshops,  during the happening called ¨The road is clear to Montreuil¨ and during the day without cars in Paris .... It parades along with 195 vegetalized toy-trucks, created collectively by the groups called ¨Paris Label¨, ¨Engaged citizens¨ and ¨Flower Umbrellas for climate¨.

    Let the imagination fly!

    Let’s make beautiful letters!

    A great letter, a message with a surprise, it makes them want to read it!

    You can send an e-mail that will be printed.

    The important thing is that your message comes from your heart.


    You can also create an unusual letter as postal-art.

    You can make a message in a bottle, on a shoe or even something from the garbage that you transform.

    You can draw. You can also decorate an envelope.



    Your message must be made strong enough so it can be transported.

  • Why is the COP 21 so important?

    Because the world leaders need to achieve an international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries.
    The aim is to keep global warming below 2°C.

    The climatic problems

    What would happen if we don’t do anything?


    It will soon become too hot for some animals and plants to survive.There will be more and more dryness, storms and floods. Millions of people will be chased out of their homes due to the rising of the oceans and the lack of food.


    Fortunately, more and more solutions are being found.

    Everywhere, there are good initiatives being developed by cities, businesses and associations that exchange good ideas.

    Some children also react and speak up!

    We can react if we decide so.

    broken image

      This international agreement will affect       your adult life.

    Signed in 2015, it will come into effect in 2020

    For the first time, we must achieve a universal agreement that will permit a durable transformation of our societies.

    To achieve this, we will have to accept big changes.

    Every country will have to make an effort, and the rich countries will have to show solidarity towards the poor countries.

    Selfishness will have to go away so future generations can live well on this planet.
