This is precisely the essence of the festival for the past five years, the use of images in order to reveal, denounce, value and explain.

Other public figures support the festival in its effort to raise awareness of good practices through imagery; Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jerry Brown (Current governor of California) and Jane Goodall (famous primatologist) who took part in COP21, the climate conference at the Grand Palais. But also: Luc Jaquet, Nils Tavernier, Sonia Roland, Georges Pernoud, Jamy Gourmaud, Jean-Michel Cousteau and Bertrand Picard.
