Didactic model of an integrated cultivation system for environmental awareness

Project No 228

The project consists in the implementation of a small integrated cultivation system in the forests of the Petit-Château in La Chaux-de-Fonds in the canton of Neuchâtel. This installation will take the form of an aquaponic exhibition module and will aim to raise awareness of environmentally friendly cultivation methods among the public visiting the park. Through an innovative and educational installation, the system will introduce bio-geochemical concepts based on the nitrogen cycle. The project not only addresses the issue of intensive agricultural production, but also some nutritional concepts. The project will consist of three phases, to be implemented in 2018, consisting of the study phase, the implementation phase and the subsequent exposure phase until the dismantling of the system.
