Innovation : Marketed / Broadcasted
How to educate young people about environmental issues when you love the nightlife? This former clubber decided to create a sustainable dance floor. His invention allows dancers to produce the electricity that will light up the club. For Michel, it’s more than worth the effort!

It’s easier to meet Michel than his dance floor, which is traveling around the world. He first had to figure out where his invention was going to be and then meet us there so we could film his interview.
