The Brière Brivet watershed extends over an area of ​​800 km², including nearly 20,000 hectares of wetlands and 600 km of watercourses, between the Vilaine estuary, that of the Loire, the almost Guérande island and the Nantes-Brest canal. Reducing and controlling pollution are levers of action that the SBVB (Brivet Watershed Union) is implementing in the region. And to regain the quality of water, as well as that of aquatic environments, it is necessary to mobilize, explain and convince, before being able to take action. explains Clémentine Colliot, in charge of the Water Challenge for the CPIE (Permanent Center and Initiatives for the Environment), organizer of the event.

A family challenge

The Water Challenge returns for a second edition, from May 15 to 1er June, in partnership with different structures and local authorities, to introduce people to water issues in the region in a fun way. It’s a family challenge aimed at all residents of Saint-André and the surrounding area, who are looking for information and tips to improve their practices, or simply curious to know more about water, particularly at the local level, continues Clémentine Colliot. You can come alone or in a group, young and old are welcome.

Change your habits

For two weeks, from May 15 to 1er June, the CPIE will offer field visits on the water cycle, workshops on sharing tips with a committed resident, a bike ride, activities for children, as well as visits on different uses , such as rivers, the city, gardens or farms. The objective is to move forward collectively in the process in order to reduce our water consumption together and preserve this resource which is essential to our health and the environment. completes the host.

To do this, the Water Challenge gradually leads participants to question the impact of their practices, and supports everyone in changing their daily habits, in their immediate environment. The challenge is to succeed in implementing small actions that take water issues into account, and why not reduce your bill .
