Nobody can doubt the power of images in order to reveal, highlight, promote, explain and sometimes denounce.
Deauville Green Awards offers a unique opportunity for companies, institutions, NGOs and communities to promote actions and good practices to meet the challenge of climate change, preserve our environment and ensure the well-being of future generations.
For the last 7 years the festival’s mission has been to enhance information films, spots and documentaries on sustainability, eco-innovation and social responsibility, and thus educate all interested parties on these vital topics.
