Aux Arbres! is the first major movement bringing together professionals, associations, institutional agencies and civil society to celebrate forests, biodiversity and the climate.

With the desire to initiate a lasting movement, the Maisons du Monde Foundation brings together, for the very first time, all the stakeholders who wish to take action to protect forests, biodiversity and the climate.

The first event, Aux Arbres! takes place in Nantes, on 8 and 9 June 2018, at the city’s iconic venue, Les Machine de l’Ile.
