Yves Rocher Foundation Terre de Femmes Award 2017

Publish Date: Jul 03, 2017


Every day, women commit to changing the world.

The Terre de Femmes award highlights the strength of their fight. Working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations for gender equality and the empowerment of women, the Yves Rocher Foundation has already honoured 375 winners in more than 50 countries. Alongside these women, the Yves Rocher Foundation strives for united environmentalism, which is critical to preserving biodiversity.

If any action, large or small, is beneficial to nature, whether on your doorstop or on the other side of the world, it deserves attention.
It could even win the Terre de Femmes Award!

There is only one condition: it must have been instigated by a woman, who also has to be the project’s sponsor. The Terre de Femmes Award winners head up initiatives that help to protect the plant world and benefit the environment, while contributing to the well-being of the community.

The projects created by them are as diverse as their personalities. They all have a cause they uphold in their own unique way, whether it is protecting pine trees in Poland, crafting solar cookers in Madagascar, defending the great apes of Gabon, or certifying eco-friendly day care centres in southern France.
