Synopsis: For its third edition, the Terre de Femmes International Award will be presented to a woman or a collective of women committed to improving general awareness and understanding of seeds through tangible initiatives implemented by a not-for-profit organization. The aim is to promote the key role played by seeds and seed reproduction in safeguarding the planet’s nutritive heritage and biodiversity.
As an organization with official ‘public interest’ status, the Yves Rocher Foundation hopes, through this themed award, to provide a platform for these women working to save our seeds, taking action in their own unique ways to keep agricultural biodiversity alive, perpetuate the sharing of ancestral practices and protect the shared resource that seeds represent.
