After ten years of patronage, Maisons du Monde pledged its long-term commitment to the protection of forests and biodiversity by creating the Maisons du Monde Foundation in late 2015. As of 2021, it becomes the endowment fund Maisons du Monde Foundation.
The MDM Foundation contributes to the protection of forests and trees all over the world, wherever urgent action is needed.
The MDM Foundation provides financial support and assists associations in implementing conservation programmes on the ground, aimed at and led by local populations. Since the end of 2015, we have supported 37 not-for-profit projects in 14 countries around the world.
When we all play our part, we can continue in our work to protect trees and forests. As such, the MDM Foundation is introducing programmes for the general public to improve environmental awareness and reconnect with nature.
In the region Hauts-de-France, the association Les Planteurs Volontaires is doing work with local citizens to reforest and preserve hedges and orchards.
From 2 to 6 June, 2021, discover the new edition of “Aux Arbres!”, our programme aimed at tree and forest conservation and rebuilding the connection between humankind and nature. Since its launch in 2018, the programme has been raising awareness of this conservation among children and adults alike, presenting solutions that are within their reach and inviting them to take action, both individually and collectively.
