Les Canaux


Passing by this Sunday, on the side of the Ourcq canal, they could not help with Anna, a friend, to stop at the House of solidarity and innovative economies. Former administrative center of the Paris canals, reinvested by the Association "The channels" which, with the city of Paris, has managed a great ecological renovation of places, in order to enhance 20 supportive companies of Grand Paris. It makes nice stuff and the cushions in canvas of balloon and lights in parchment paper, to be discovered.

Channels, beyond their own animations, make provisions of modular spaces for events festive and engaged public awareness to the issues of a sustainable city and a responsible trade: Conferences, ethical Christmas workshops,. ethical fashion festivals and pop-up blinds... This summer will follow one another in turn several ethical caterers.
