After successful European performances, ‘Rock the Sun’ was in India to build a mobile solar powered unit. After their on-site construction, the first performance took place at Jaaga, Bangalore. swissnex India was pleased to support the project in India. ‘Rock the Sun’ was a collaboration between Cédric Carles, a Swiss designer and Vialka, a French music duo. This United Nations Foundation endorsed project was brought to India for the first time by swissnex to establish a link between sustainable development and culture, and to draw attention to energy-related environmental issues. swissnex India organised several concerts, lectures and interactions which gained much media popularity through a radio interview and over ten articles in the leading newspapers and magazines.
