Yves Rocher Foundation Terre de Femmes International Prize 2024 Edition. In 2001, Jacques Rocher created the Terre de Femmes Prize within the Yves Rocher Foundation, now recognized as a public utility, which supports nearly 500 women around the world who are committed to protecting nature.
Because tomorrow is being preserved today, because the climate emergency requires all the most active forces, we have conceived the Yves Rocher Foundation Terre de Femmes International Prize “as a prize open to all female citizens of the world committed to the protection of nature.
This environmental dimension is complemented by a considerable social and societal impact.
By collectively supporting this great adventure for nature, we are helping to build a better tomorrow for present and future generations.
As such, in 2024, we are launching the sixth edition of this prize on the theme: “Insects, for a living planet!”
Women of action, join the movement!
- Are you a leading woman (or a group of women) committed to insect conservation?
- Does your project have a strong environmental and social impact (involving local communities)?
- Is your organization an NGO, association or foundation?
- Do you need support?
The Terre de Femmes International Prize is for you!
The prize is €10,000
