HES-SO projects


In 2019, the HES-SO offers you a free one-way ticket to the future. At the top of the Asse plain stand the spectacular UTOPIA 2050 plant towers, which festivalgoers can access by climbing up a spiral slope. Six participative activities installed on the sides of the structures encourage you to question yourself in a playful way about the world of tomorrow.

Live the future today

As they progress up the towers, welcomed by the students of the HES-SO, festivalgoers will be able to test an original diet, the issues set by new agriculture, the challenges of health care 4.0, work performed by robots and the surprising textures of some highly original cordials. At the top, the horizon reveals the Grande Scène… and the future.

A range of young talents

At Paleo, the HES-SO will also be displaying its talents outside UTOPIA 2050. The poster and graphic design for the 44th edition were created by Perrine Morel and Simon Muñoz, both visual arts students. A second team produced the concert announcements and animated films projected on the festival’s video screens.

Three doses of peace of mind

And that’s not all! A team of social work students will be accompanying young people during the Festival, while two others will be looking after teens and kids so that their parents can enjoy Paléo to the full.
