Evionnaz: National Future Day

Within the parameters of the ­national Future Day, we welcomed twelve children of employees to give them a better understanding of occupations detached from gender roles. 

The day started with a presentation of the occupation and training of technologists and laboratory assistants followed by a more fun-oriented part comprising a range of chemical experiences that fascinated the interested children and triggered numerous questions. 

In the course of the afternoon, the production facilities, laboratories and offices were shown, permitting the children to experience the working environment of their family members. This day was a great success, to a large degree thanks to the caring and individual guidance by Christophe Dorsaz and Miguel Garrido, who shared their passion for chemical occupations with the children. Only the future will tell whether the one or other vocation was uncovered or awakened.
