About us

Who are we?

The goodplanet.info site is a project of the GoodPlanet foundation which is headed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

Our purposes

This website aims to provide the public with points of reference on the major environmental and human questions of our time. It allows people to find reliable, coherent and understandable information related to these issues. The goodplanet.info site brings all these information in an educational manner and guides readers to other useful sites or documents which can further shed light on the subject. It thus acts as a portal for all areas of the environment. In order to offer a global perspective on information, this website provides its readers an international point of view. It is also bilingual (English and French). To insure the best quality of released information, the texts have been reviewed by experts from different universities and research institutes.
