Les Enfants de la Mer
Environmental awareness and sustainable development, here and abroad
The municipal action of les Enfants de la Mer has confirmed Argelès as a key national player in the field of environmental activism and sustainable development. Back for its 9th edition, this recurring summer-long project was originally inspired by the outdoor photography exhibition, Vivants, in Paris back in 2007. Aiming to engage and educate visitors of all ages, les Enfants de la Mer is a collaborative effort, unique in France.
