Home MovieGoodPlanet GoodPlanet is a foundation that was created in 2005 to raise public awareness of environmental protection and to bring concrete solutions to the Earth’s ecological crisis. The foundation is chaired by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Yann Arthus-Bertrand has flown over one hundred countries around the world. Extraordinary aerial views of nature and descriptive texts invite all of us to reflect upon the our planet’s evolution and its inhabitants’ future. 
In just 50 years mankind has modified Planet Earth’s environment faster than in the whole history of humanity! As Earth’s ecosystem worsens, nature is expressing its violent anger: fresh water, oceans, forests, air, climate, arable land are all diminishing drastically. 
We live a decisive moment - right now! A worldwide governmental policy must establish without delay norms which will make it possible “to meet present needs without compromising the needs of future generations”. We are personally responsible for the future of our Earth, and each of us has a role to play; we are all able – have the duty - to take action. 
Here’s where we start.

The mission of GoodPlanet


GoodPlanet is working to raise awareness and propose concrete solutions in favor of our planet and its inhabitants. We are 
•  Sensitizing all citizens to the world’s problems, and giving each person an active role; 
•  Mobilizing the economic leaders and governmental policies by explaining the association’s goals and by helping them set up sustainable development procedures; 
•  Implementing programs that propose concrete answers to the environmental crisis. 

GoodPlanet is member of the French « Alliance pour la planète » and the « Comité 21 », in addition to other French ecological associations.
