May 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Namur, rue Marie-Henriette 53
For its return, after two years of absence, the Hénallux 2nd year Marketing student fair has chosen to devote itself to reasoned and local consumption. Entirely coordinated and set up by the students, it brings together some thirty exhibitors active in the field. Among them, now well-known Namur brands such as Ram’dam or Jamu, local companies such as Wash Wash Cousin or Natura, or craftsmen, Zeste de Patine, for example. Each stand offers the possibility of tasting its products or organizes an activity related to its work.
But Eco’logic is also two conferences. One will be given at 1 p.m. by Adélaïde Charlier, the French-speaking coordinator of the Belgian Youth for Climate movement and Louise Rosoux, a member of the same movement. They will present their fight for the planet and explain how everyone can act at their level.
The other lecture will be given by Adrien Voisin, teacher at UNamur and Hénallux, who will talk about the impact of technology on the environment.
Other activities will be organized during the day, with a single watchword: having fun while rethinking your consumption.
May 6 and 7, Beaufays, Domaine Bellum Fagetum
The Bellum Fagetum vineyard installed along the Ravel linking Embourg and Beaufays will plant 500 vines by hand this weekend. He therefore needs arms to dig.
This young vineyard was created by Judith Michel and her companion Geoffrey Prinsens following the Covid crisis. They bought the land in front of their house and decided to launch this project in the form of a cooperative with the aim of making the vineyard a place of meeting and sharing. The wine is made with respect for the environment and the project has a social purpose.
Those without green fingers are also welcome. They will be able to witness the planting of 20,000 vines by machine. A bar will be set up in the vineyards and activities for children are also planned: bouncy castle, coloring, balloons and walks on the Ravel.
