A floating exhibition space and awareness-raising center was created from the old ferry of the village of Sárazsadány, NE Hungary. The Floating Exhibition, which raises awareness of the importance of environmental protection and the problem of river pollution, was launched on Thursday.
The now ten years old Tisza PET Cup, a campaign to collect plastic waste from the Tisza River, has created the Floating Exhibition (FLEX), based on a decommissioned boat hull, by combining environmental protection, water tourism, waste-free tourism and cultural experiences.
The project, called FLEX-Sárazsadány, aims to raise public awareness about the pollution of living waters, especially the Danube and Tisza rivers, and to offer scientifically sound results and methods to tackle the problem. The exhibition aims to bring the Tisza River closer to the public and change the way visitors relate to single-use plastics.
The Floating Exhibition, made of reused and recyclable materials in the spirit of total zero waste, has something for all ages. Visitors can learn about the results of the Tid(y)Up project, the history of the Tisza and Bodrog PET Cups, and learn about the challenges facing rivers and local responses through interactive, playful awareness-raising and education.
All elements of the exhibition are designed with reuse and recycling in mind. The used ferry and sea containers that form the basis of the exhibition space are made from tons of river and selective waste. The bow and stern covers are made of river plastic, the table and registration desk are made of scrap wood, and the upper deck cover is from public collection. Windows, doors and insulating elements are all from individual donations, home renovations and construction projects. A wide variety of raw materials were incorporated into the exhibition by pet pirates.
In addition to the exhibition, the floating showroom also features a plastics workshop and a projection room where children, teachers and parents can learn about the history of the PET Cup, the results of river clean-ups, the ecological role of rivers, river plastic pollution and possible solutions in an interactive way through thought-provoking and hands-on elements.
