On the statue of the Zouave at the Alma Bridge in Paris (France) we put on a bright orange life jacket. This is an action of the ecological association “GoodPlanet Foundation”.
Parisians on this statue determine the water level in the Seine, the threat of flooding appears when the zouavou pours boots.
Now the soldier’s water is waist-deep. A strong flood in Paris will last at least another two weeks.
The creator of the environmental association, Jan Artyus-Bertrand, said that the action with a vest should attract public attention to the rapidly changing climate. It is coordinated with the Parisian City Hall and with the Minister of Ecological Transition, Nicolas Hulot.
