An interactive exhibition on the incredible adventure of the Digger Foundation, which for over 25 years has been creating demining machines used in 17 countries.

The Digger Expo is located in Tavannes, the same town where demining machines are produced. It's an interactive exhibition that gives a very realistic insight into the day-to-day workings of the humanitarian demining sector, and shows just how much the solutions provided give back hope and dignity to thousands of people. In the ground, under rubble: anti-personnel mines can be anywhere. Can you spot them? Manual demining techniques are slow and meticulous. Will you have enough nerve? A deminer's protective clothing is heavy. Are you up to the task?
