Discovery of EXPO 2016 Antalya... planting a tree #3
We continue our visit to the site of Expo 2016 Antalya... after receipt on the office, direction to the field of the Expo site, in the heart of works and constructions.
Even if for the moment, it's a little difficult to imagine the site completely finished, the work is progressing and the activity clearly visible. Anyway, apart the Expo Tower, there's will have not big buildings, but rather pavilions that will be integrated into the environment. And for those who have a fairly functional use, the roofs will be vegetated to optimize this "nature" aspect, minimizing the visual impact of human constructions for the benefit of the vegetation! Let us not forget that the purpose is an horticultural Expo, ecological and sustainable, because once the completed event, the site become an horticultural park, playful, as well for tourists staying in Antalya, for the people who will have a "green" Park of 112 hectares, where walking, entertained, and even learn about the flowers of course, but also on all vegetation in general , with always in mind this concept of sustainability, and heritage for future generations... thereby to keep in mind the theme of the Expo : children and flowers.
It's now time to devote ourself to a very nice custom reserved for visitors to the site of the Expo 2016 Antalya, I'm talking about planting a tree on the site! We, 7 french journalists, are invited to complete cover the roots of 'our' tree, sign with our "label", evidence of our passage and our contribution, and the copious watering final... and the photo pf the group. We have thus participated to the plantations, and we will go to visit 'our' tree next year, at the Expo!
