1.3 billion people do not have access to electricity today and around 3 billion people cook and heat their homes using open fires and simple stoves burning biomass (wood, animal dung and crop waste) and coal. That's why we would like to show through homemade workshops how these countries manage to live without this resource but also the major means of energy production used in these countries.
We want visitors to retain information for long periods and we want them to feel involved in the forum. The movie is a way to try reaching visitors’ interest through aesthetic and emotion. A lot of data on the energy domain is thrown at students but this remains most of the time very theoretical whereas images enable students to have a direct interpretation of our subject. So take a seat and watch a movie excerpt in order to understand the different energy habits around the world!
This stand will bring entertainment, as we try to make them as interactive as possible. This is important as it raises curiosity about the subject. It is interesting for visitors’ general knowledge as they can remember facts and numbers thanks to the wheel, thus they’ll have a better knowledge of what is a developing country and their issues regarding energy
Electricity is a crucial factor for the development of a country: without it there is no light and the exchanges with the rest of the world are very limited. In developing countries, inequalities mean that some people do not have access to the energy they need to improve their way of life. So we looked for a way to produce electricity cheaply to show how some people in developing countries create their own electricity despite the lack of electrical network.
We wanted to prove by example that such systems are operational and relatively easy to set up.
Come to our workshop and learn through examples how people in developing countries manage on a daily basis without access to energy. Visitors’ will have to find the good "ingredients" in order to know how to produce light without electricity.
