AND IF ECOLOGY COULD HELP THE ECONOMY ?
Maud Fontenoy and her Foundation’s team would like to suggest another view of ecology. Let’s be realistic and stop saying things that make people feel frightened or guilty. It’s time for action and sustainable investment!
Declining biodiversity and increasing global warming represent the number one threat to humans. However, the Maud Fontenoy Foundation is turning this environmental challenge into an opportunity to make a positive change, to reinvent the relationship between humanity and the deep blue.
Protecting the oceans is a source of opportunities for tomorrow!
It means two things: better management of three quarters of the planet’s surface, and making the most of this element, which represents one of the most powerful economic sectors in France, employing over 300,000 people.
Revitalising employment and corporate affairs goes hand in hand with this call to innovation and unifying values.
The sea winds and currents will breathe new life into our societies – by 2050, 25% of the European energy mix will be made up of marine energy. The oceans’ biodiversity protects us from the impacts of global warming. The oceans themselves, in addition to providing over 22,000 medicines, 60% of our oxygen and food for over half the planet, inspire us to ever greater innovations. Let’s not waste time when we could be future-proofing our businesses by investing the saving the seas.
Education isn’t just the future – it’s our children’s future!
Today’s young people will be tomorrow’s economic and political force. Through education and action, the current generation of entrepreneurs and decision-makers can join us to lay the foundations for a sustainable, profitable world, both today and tomorrow. In an enduring spirit of cooperation and personal engagement, the Maud Fontenoy Foundation creates educational tools to raise awareness, educate and take action.
OUR THINKING REFLECTS THE VALUES THAT HAVE ALLOWED MAUD TO ACCOMPLISH HER SEAFARING EXPLOITS. THIS IS THE START OF A NEW HUMAN ADVENTURE - JOINT IT!
