Hydrotour was set up as a non-profit making body
under French law:
1. To promote the concept of sustainable development
at all levels of responsibility, in order to stimulate
collective thought in this battle for life and
2. To help with the financing of research and
partnership projects on the questions and challenges
related to water: its use, treatment, consumption
and storage, throughout the world.
3. To collect, relay and disseminate information
and testimonies on the theme of water and sustainable
development, via its internet site.
The Hydrotour Association has a grassroots approach
based on the European Union's subsidiarity principal
that keeps decision-making as close as possible
to those whose lives it is supposed to improve.
It tries to put into practice the idea that each
human being is, at his or her own level of responsibility,
to be the drop of water that will lead to progress.
As you will have understood, there is nothing
revolutionary behind our association. It is the
outcome of a wish, a will and an aim, put together
to make a project: to prove that the key to the
early reversal of human and environmental degradation
is through commitment at all levels of responsibility.
Two brothers, fascinated by Mankind's Earth,
set up the Hydrotour Association to embark on
a world tour of adventure to meet the challenge
of water. They will travel for 14 months to the
four corners of the world, by car, bus, train,
motorbike, on foot or even on horseback, to encounter
those women and men who, confronting catastrophic
situations, have refused to give up.
They set off with two goals in mind:
- To organise educational classes on water.
- To disseminate information on projects of
water associations encountered during their
