wars, disasters caused by cultural phenomena and impacts on local agriculture. There are many factors that move people around the world.

Created by Serge which Kiala, plastic artist, refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo and educator of the Museum of Tomorrow, the bicycle is the main highlight of the artistic intervention, whose idea is to treat the problem of environmental migration as a survival strategy for people who are at extreme risk. "Besides being a means of transport that does not pollute the environment, it does not use fuel, the bicycle is a vehicle for easy hanging and facilitates urban mobility. There is much talk of political problems, economic and religious, but few discuss the environmental or climate tragedy as a reason for migration on the planet ", explains Kiala.
The artistic composition portrays the bike in the water, symbolizing the flooding and the tragedies of nature, with its possible consequences: impaired agriculture, lack of energy, hunger and consequent retreat. "In keeping with the show title, 'Press that is necessary to your happiness', the work also includes basic items for survival of a person: food and hygiene materials, all attached to the vehicle ", says Serge, adding that the handlebars of the bicycle has a tablet to show that without energy there is no communication.
