When asked to associate a color to the Roland-Garros tournament, we would most probably say Red, the color of clay, this essential material that became the signature of the French Open. But this year, I couldn’t help but notice the notable presence of Green.
The 2019 edition of the emblematic Parisian tournament is indeed illustrating the importance of giving back a privileged place to nature and highlighting respect for biodiversity within the stadium's walls.
Throughout the tournament, Roland-Garros is running an awareness public campaign, via videos broadcasted in the aisles involving players, as important ambassadors.
Green teams criss-cross the stadium to raise spectators' awareness of eco-responsible actions and sustainable development in general by presenting the emblematic actions carried out in a fun way.
Fruit plantations, honey production, creation of a "Roland-Garros" rose, installing green walls, more than 123 trees to be planted in the stadium by 2020, revegetation is indeed at the heart of the Roland-Garros universe.
