About the project Edit

It is a park that offers a natural sports ground with all the necessary equipment. The park boasts a race track (for jogging), a space for weight lifting and muscle conditioning, a soccer field, a playground for children, a friendly restaurant, and a bar. Instructors will be available to clients of the sports club. Sports instructors and environmentalists will lead collective outdoor workshops in the environmental park, in areas set up for this purpose.

Themes

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

This project is characterized by the fact that sports activities take place in a natural space, among trees and plants. This is opposed to the traditional city sports clubs where activities take place in an enclosed space that offers no contact with nature.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

Sports enthusiasts can come as a family, let young children play in the children’s area while parents jog or walk on the racetrack. The enthusiastic response to these centres will enable us to value and preserve the flora, thus contributing to sustainable development.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

In Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, a green belt surrounds the entire city and neighbouring citizens do not have access to landscaped space. The goal is to “unprotect” available natural resources and add those that are lacking.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Health professionals recommend sports and fresh air. The major arteries of cities are not conducive to sports activities because pollution levels are so high. Therefore, natural sports grounds must be developed.

What is the business model of this project? Edit

The revenue generated by contributions to the sports club, the bar and the restaurant, and access fees to the track will help us finance project development and repay the initial investment. The project will benefit from the technical and financial support of environmental organizations as well as environmental protection organizations during its launching phase. But revenues will also be put towards the development of this type of club in other cities to ensure the continuity of the project.
