Nomade des mers

Le tour du monde des innovations low-tech

Parcourir le monde  en autonomie et dans le respect de l’environnement, c’est le défi lancé par le jeune ingénieur Corentin de Chatelperron, en embarquant pour trois ans à bord du  Nomade des Mers  ! Ce tour du monde en catamaran a pour but de repérer, à chaque escale du voyage, les plus ingénieuses des  low-tech, ces systèmes D accessibles et économiques, faciles à fabriquer et à réparer partout. Corentin en est convaincu  : ces inventions, simples et durables, ont un véritable potentiel  pour faire face aux grands enjeux écologiques du XXIe  siècle, tels que l’accès à l’eau potable, la lutte contre la déforestation ou le réchauffement climatique.
Avec ce livre, revivez ce périple extraordinaire, découvrez les inventions les plus incroyables et apprenez même à les construire grâce à des fiches techniques très détaillées. Du Maroc au Brésil, de la Thaïlande à l’Indonésie en passant par le Cap-Vert ou Madagascar, embarquez, vous aussi, pour un tour du monde des innovations  low-tech  !
NOMADE DES MERS (Roaming the seas)
 
Hop on board with Corentin de Chatelperron, the young explorer who is a skilled boatman and lets you come along for a round-the-world tour of low-tech innovations and green solutions for the autonomy of humankind!
 
THE BOOK
Have you heard of low tech, the techniques which, unlike high tech, require a lot of ingenuity and talent, but very little money? Why not find out about the most promising of these technologies on a round-the-world trip of green initiatives and their inventors? Corentin de Chatelperron has set a challenge to experts, students associations, DIY enthusiasts and scientists: invent simple devices to allow human beings, floundering in this increasingly interconnected world of technology, to recover their independence. In this book, follow the young engineer and his team’s trip on board the ship-come-laboratory, the Nomade des Mers (Roaming the seas), which left the port of Concarneau in 2016 for three years of exploration. The aim was to become an exemplary self-sufficient ecosystem, the standard-bearer of sustainable and united innovation. At sea and at each port of call, the team experiments with low tech, an idea that shapes every moment of the expedition, from the construction of the boat to the choice of destinations. Low tech is the true engine of the adventure!
 
THE AUTHOR
Corentin de Chatelperron, born in 1983, is a French engineer, explorer and president of the Gold of Bengal association. His mission is to research, develop and promote solutions to the challenges of autonomy of water, energy, food and materials that better respect nature, cultures and the resources of different areas. In 2009, while working in a shipyard in Bangladesh, Corentin came up with the idea to replace the fiberglass he was using with jute fibre, a natural local resource. To prove its potential and find partners, Corentin built the small sailing boat Tara Tari, the first boat to use jute as a material, and decided to sail to France on a six-month solitary journey. Three years later, the Gold of Bengal, a boat made 100% of jute, was inaugurated in Bangladesh. In 2016, on board the Nomade des Mers (Roaming the Seas), he set on a three-year, round-the-world trip, searching for low-tech inventors.
