Yann Arthus-Bertrand (Chairman), FR
Vita

Vita

Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a photographer and environmentalist. His spectacular aerial photographs made him world-famous. He has always had a passion for the animal world and the natural environment. At the age of 20, he settled in central France and became the director of a nature reserve. When he was 30, he travelled to Kenya with his wife. He quickly started using a camera as a visual aid to capture his observations. While in Africa, he earned his living as a hot-air balloon pilot. This was when he really discovered the earth from above and the advantages of viewing what he was studying from afar to gain an overall picture of an area and its resources. He discovered his calling: to demonstrate the Earth’s beauty and show the impact of mankind on the Planet. Little by little, Yann became a reporter focusing on environmental issues, and collaborating with Geo, National Geographic, Life, Paris Match, Figaro Magazine etc. In 1991, he founded the first aerial photography agency in the world. For the first Rio Conference in 1992, Yann decided to prepare a big work for the year 2000 on the state of the planet: it is THE EARTH FROM ABOVE. This book encountered a great success and over 3 million copies were sold. Yann then created the GOODPLANET foundation that aims to raise public awareness of environmental issues, implement carbon offset programmes and fight deforestation with local NGOs.
