Green Solutions Festival

The Festival of Ecological Solutions is back from September 24 to October 2, 2022, throughout Burgundy-Franche-Comté. This event aims to raise citizens' awareness of ecology and to collectively reflect on how to take care of our planet.

During the festival, the public is invited to meet the people who bring the Musée des Maisons Comtoises and its 16-hectare park to life in a spirit of eco-responsibility.
Park managers, gardeners and mediators will be taking turns to talk about the latest initiatives taken by the museum in this area, and to share their knowledge.
Eco-creative workshops will enable young and old alike to try out simple, fun solutions to help protect the environment. Guided tours of the houses and gardens will introduce you to the materials, techniques and practices involved in sustainable living. You can also take advantage of your visit to discover the museum's brand-new building, an eco-friendly goat shelter.
The "À table !" exhibition and the "Le progrès se met à table" (progress at the table) gesticulated conference, on October 28 at the café-restaurant Le Pixel in Besançon, will raise questions about the environmental impact of our food choices.

6 p.m.: "Solutions implemented" workshop, by Olivier GORICHON : The planet is burning and we're watching? We can be hummingbirds! What information do we have? What are we doing for the planet? Even the smallest gesture is a way of helping the planet! Assertions, figures, exchanges of solutions, alerts...

8pm: Gesticulated conference "Le progrès s'est mise à table", by Olivier GORICHON: "Progress has taken care of the earth... in both senses of the word: the soil and the planet with its inhabitants. The agro-industry proposes to fill our plates, and its strategies impact our environment. Olivier unravels the thread: the food choices acquired through his personal journey and the history of the world. His individual consumer choices framed by politics. Olivier narrates... Between family history, the history of humanity and the current context... He weaves the link between his Amap, indigenous peoples, the Marshall Plan... and man on the moon! "

And also...

Come and discover the museum's brand new building! Since June, the Museum's goats have been enjoying a new shelter built especially for them by students from the Ecole Nationale d'Architecture de Lyon and the Lycée du Bois de Mouchard. For nine months, the students worked together to imagine and design wooden shelters for the museum's animals. The first of the four shelters selected was entirely manufactured and assembled by the students. The project is both aesthetically original and ecologically sound. Like a giant construction set, the shelter is made up of just two types of parts, making it quick and easy to build. The students also thought about recovering rainwater from the roof to feed the animals' trough directly.
