ART CAN SAVE OUR FUTURE
EMAJINARIUM is an amazing show created by Free Spirit Foundation, dedicated to protecting our planet.
RESILIENT EARTH ‘NEEDS OUR HELP’ TO REVERSE DAMAGE. We are rapidly reaching the point of no return for the planet. We face a triple environmental emergency — biodiversity loss, climate disruption and escalating pollution. For too long, humanity has cut down the Earth’s forests, polluted its rivers and oceans, and ploughed its grasslands into oblivion.
« Our mission is to use art to inspire people to change the world. We created EMAJINARIUM to bring attention on climate change and to take concrete actions to restore the nature. »
Fabrice Hossa – Founder & Director of Free Spirit Foundation
Art is our passion and creation is our core. Art is the most powerful tool we can use to spread humanity, to protect our planet and most threatened species and habitats. Art is a universal language that opens people’s hearts. We use art by combining several artistic disciplines in order to connect people on an emotional level with the beauty of our world.
Knowledge leads to action, action inspires change and change leads to positive impact. Through the EMAJINARIUM show and the EMAJINARIUM Concert for the planet, we can deliver our messages about global warming but we also raise funds to take concrete actions on the ground :
Our non-profit organization Free Spirit has created the programme RE-GREEN THE PLANET and aims to plant 5 million trees across the globe by 2030.

KENYA FACES DEVASTATING DROUGHT
Between 2008 and early 2010, Kenya, one of the countries of Eastern Africa, was affected by a severe drought. Owing to the lack of annual rainfall, the arid and semi-arid lands of Kenya (ASALs) are very susceptible to drought and flooding. These lands are impacted by the increasing effects of climate change and the risk of desertification.
