Presidential visit: the Race for Water team welcomes aboard the Chilean President

On Saturday 16 June, in Valparaiso, a symbolic meeting took place aboard the Race for Water catamaran. In fact, the President of Chile, Sébastian Piñera, accompanied by five of his ministers and members of the Rapa Nui authorities had the chance to discover an innovative project for the Easter Islands with the President of the Race for Water Foundation, Marco Simeoni, and Gunter Pauli, father of the Blue Economy and the President of the ZERI Foundation. 

To guarantee self-sufficiency in terms of energy, water management and the recovery of waste on the most remote island in the world, such is the challenge our two Foundations have set themselves for 2020!

Since then, Race for Water has cast off and set sail for Concepcion or more exactly the military port of Talcahuano, which the crew, led by Jean-Marc Normant is set to reach in 4 day's time.
