J’agis pour la nature (Act for nature): commitment to local biodiversity rewarded

Created on the initiative of the Nicolas Hulot Foundation and supported by the Maisons du Monde Foundation, each year, the programme “J’agis pour la nature” grants financial support to local biodiversity protection micro-projects. In December 2019, 11 projects were rewarded: discover which ones!

Since 2010, the programme “J’agis pour la nature” by the Nicolas Hulot Foundation puts structures offering “nature” activities in touch with volunteers wishing to give a little of their free time via an online platform.

In addition to this measure, a call for projects is organised thrice a year in order to support micro-projects in the field. During the last session, in December 2019, 11 associative projects were rewarded by the jury comprising the Fondation de France, the Nature & Découvertes Foundation, the eco-responsible clothing brand CoqenPâte, and the Maisons du Monde Foundation, which has supported the programme since 2016.
