Located at the entrance of the Grand Palais, NEW WORLD presents itself as a “lock” Home Visitor Solutions COP21. This multi-sensory hut of 20 m2 over 6 meters high invites a powerful and moving experience, with the screening of a film made from NASA scientific data.  The artist calls us to build a NEW WORLD, where the preservation of natural resources is the basis of all action.

This Project is based on two solutions proposed by its partners facing climate change
