In 2017, the BioLiving Association, a non-profit association for environmental protection, with projects dedicated to reforestation, was the entity chosen to receive part of the profits of the first edition of the festival. This unanimous decision was inspired by the stories and images of the devastation caused by the summer’s fires, a tragedy of indescribable dimensions that particularly touched the feelings of the festival’s organizing team.
This is the manifesto of the BioLiving Association:
“One day, we dared to dream.
We wanted to create a project that would integrate people, animals and plants in one language, in one common goal. We rolled up our sleeves and promised to bring education and nature to everyone.
And today, more than ever, the utopian dream is necessary. From science, we have made a tool, from the will to see a better world we have made cause.
In less than a year we have planted 5500 trees, restored 10 hectares of degraded habitat, mobilized 1500 volunteers, promoted more than 70 educational or nature conservation actions, towards a world where no one feels excluded, where no one is ashamed to love nature.
BioLiving – We work to make a dream come true”.
