EMPHASIZING ON POLYNESIAN CULTURE

The presence of more than 2000 foreign athletes from 31 countries and the direct broadcast of these Championships around the world is an extraordinary opportunity for the LOC to promote Polynesian cultural wealth locally and internationally. Paddlers around the world did not choose this sport by accident and its cultural significance is at the center of their motivation. So they are, more than in other disciplines, looking for meaningful cultural exchanges.

HOSPITALITY

The LOC wants athletes to leave with a strong and authentic experience that is based on hospitality, living culture and sharing. But also that locals can be proud of their heritage and share it across borders.

Actions in favor of culture

EXHIBITION ON THE FANZONE

The LOC, with the collaboration of the Museum of Tahiti and its Islands, will put in place an exhibition allowing the public, local and foreign, to become aware of the evolution of the va’a place in the Polynesian culture.
This project will partially resume the exhibition “Va’a, the Polynesian canoe” Tara Hiquily whose work can trace the history va’a from migratory settlements, navigation techniques and types of boats used. A second part will highlight the modern history of va’a and return on the great names that have marked the recent history of the va’a.

CULTURAL FORUM

A cultural forum will also take place on the Fanzone. The gathering of several Pacific countries represents an exceptional opportunity to create a place of exchange around themes and issues facing our culture. The transmission of languages, heritage, environmental concerns are important issues for our society. This forum aims to feed the reflections around these themes.
The LOC will be pleased to highlight your actions on the cultural stand of the Fanzone during the Va’a World Sprint Championships in Tahiti.

THE WILL TO PROMOTE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 
 
Faced with today’s environmental challenges, the LOC is involved through its awareness program for the protection of the coastline, lagoons and rivers. Several actions will be implemented with the support of the environmental protection associations present in the area.
• Operation cleaning the lagoon; young beneficiaries of the Va’a no te Ora program will be associated with them as well as those of the LOC who intervene in the lagoon
• Reduction of waste production, recycling and reuse: donation of flask to athletes, introduction of duo-bac, composting of surplus meals,
• Training of volunteers in recicling.

This is how the LOC wishes to highlight the practice of va'a in a healthy environment.
