For its second edition, BiodiversiTerre was held at Place de la République in Paris from 2-5 June 2018.
Among the 8 living exhibits created for the occasion, Klorane Botanical Foundation is the living embodiment of the "Transmission of botanical passion".
BiodiversiTerre: An event celebrating biodiversity
Conceived by Gad Weil, this exhibition of what plants and man have accomplished, sets out the ecological challenges and man's responsibility for the environment.
On the discovery trail, visitors can see how farming, nature, producers and consumers can coexist, and the potential symbiotic relationship between urban development and rural life.
Numerous interactive virtual reality exhibits have been set up to allow visitors to explore our future relationship with nature.
Klorane Botanical Foundation: a botanical scene to convey a passion for plants.
In the eight scenes presented to visitors, the Foundation gives pride of place to plants that feature in our daily lives and in our cities.
It is through these botanical workshops that the Klorane Botanical Foundation has wanted to show to the general public its commitment to the protection and enhancement of our botanical heritage.
