This is what it's all about.
IF YOU WANT TO PRESERVE THE PLANET FOR THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHILDREN, EVERYONE NEEDS TO ACT TODAY!
WATER DROP DNA WILL ALLOW EVERYONE TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT THE HEALTH OF OUR WATERS, BY SUPPORTING OUR ANALYSES OF THE LIVING, GOOD AND BAD, THROUGH DNA SEQUENCING, WHICH WILL TELL US ABOUT THE BIODIVERSITY, ITS QUALITY, AND THEREFORE ITS IMPACT ON OUR HEALTH .
Our action plan:
Allow everyone to analyze their own water, from the tap, the village fountain, a pond, a swimming pool and have an immediate result on the quality of the water in a simple and playful way.
Teach young and older how to respect water by involving everyone in sampling days and laboratories analysis.
Analyze the DNA from Mike Horn’s water samples and from each individual and thus determine all the living species in the water, their state of health and the pathologies that threaten them.
Set up campaigns to raise awareness about our daily life gestures and habits locally by Bang Bang Agency and thanks to Mike Horn to an international audience.
How are we going to do that ?
Bang Bang is committed to inform, communicate and educate by popularizing scientific results, organizing water sampling days, and making this project sustainable on a long term.
Mike Horn will take water samples during Pole2Pole expedition for 1 year and through his audience share the results and educate citizens about the threats on our world.
Hackuarium will explain and help Bang Bang Agency and citizens to analyze water samples in the Swiss lakes.
Indigo V Expedition will proceed with the DNA sequencing of the Mike Horn samples as well as writing the analysis results.
