ABOUT

“I am convinced that play, knowledge and curiosity are great levers for awakening awareness and behavioral changes in harmony with our environment. It is in with that spirit that I created Watertrek, eager to explore new creative approaches to reconnect man with water and inspire the desire to take care of this vital resource.” Séverine Vasselin, actress and founder of Watertrek.

Watertrek is a non-profit Franco-British association committed to the protection of aquatic ecosystems. It proposes an approach to environmental education combined with original and fun participatory science programs. Through its content, initiatives and partnerships, Watertrek wishes to raise awareness of the essential need to reconnect man with water to better understand the issues of its preservation.
