The Terre de Femmes prize, established by Jacques Rocher under the Yves Rocher Foundation in 2001, honors and supports more than 500 environmentalist women globally.
A group of females dedicated to the environment called Terre de Femmes!
We conceived of the “Terre de Femmes International Award” as an award available to all people of the world active in projects with great environmental, social, and societal effects because tomorrow is protected now and because the climate emergency requires all the strongest forces.
We are creating a better tomorrow for both the present and future generations by banding together to support this fantastic environmental journey.
International Terre de Femmes Award 2023
Risky natural regions include wetlands.
Above all, a wetland is a world between land and water. This habitat for several species cleans the air and water, Traps carbon, and controls floods, among many other things.
Plants, insects, and amphibians… Wetlands are home to 40% of all species on the planet.
However, in the last three centuries, 87% of these have vanished from the planet. Because 35% of these areas have vanished during the 1970s, the phenomenon has accelerated. three times as quickly as woods.
Wetlands are in grave danger, and protecting them is necessary to combat climate risks and the loss of biodiversity.
