#EVERY DAY COUNTS
Every year, the date of “Earth Overshoot Day” arrives sooner… too soon.
This is a symbolic date that marks the day when mankind has consumed more resources than our ecosystems can produce.
The date of the overshoot could become the day for surpassing oneself, supporting a transformation involving every citizen on earth.
It is because daily actions are essential and #everydaycounts for the preservation of resources and ecosystems, for our health, for a different kind of nutrition, for a viable climate trajectory and for the resilience of our lands that Planethon-365 was created.
Planethon-365 celebrates men and women, all over the world, who bear and implement specific projects and solutions that have a social and environmental impact on people and the earth.
Planethon-365 highlights, in the field, the benefits of these actions for communities and nature, which encourages people to multiply and accelerate such initiatives and to ensure more and more people commit to these actions.
Planethon-365 is creating an annual media event, inspired by successful and lasting experiences of making citizens aware and mobilising them. Planethon-365 defends a universal cause: the urgency of preserving the planet’s resources to protect humans and all living things.
Based on a selection of projects that will benefit from the donations collected, Planethon offers a world tour of pictures and testimonies: change-makers, project managers and celebrities share their commitment: men women and children talk about their daily lives…
Planethon-365 will use the most demanding ethical methodology to guarantee complete transparency in the collection and use of funding.
Planéthon-365 calls upon scientific counsel and an ethics committee comprised of experts, but also leaves plenty of scope for public participation.
#everydaycounts and all over the world millions of citizens, scientists, companies and organisations are committed to fighting against the clock to re-invent ways of living, producing and consuming that are more respectful of living things.
Planethon-365’s aims are as follows:
● To contribute to the ecological, social and societal transformation of our planet.
● To contribute to actions that protect ecosystems, preserve resources and help reduce social and ecological inequality.
● To allow the public at large and companies to take specific action in favour of solidarity and social justice in the world.
● To contribute to achieving the 17 aims of sustainable development.
● To highlight the efficient solutions that exist and are worthy of deployment on a broader scale.
PLANETHON 365’s mission is to act for the preservation of our planet:
Specific actions will be implemented to resolve urgent causes in France, Europe and throughout the world and to assign funding to organisations to act and bring SOLUTIONS.
Planéthon-365 will mainly focus its actions on any solution that preserves resources and contributes to reducing social and ecological inequality. Solutions do exist but they must be made known and deployed worldwide.
Planethon-365 will select projects presented by associations that work in the field to provide solutions and to promote best social and environmental practices and contribute to the attainment of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Planethon-365 will collect donations to allow the public at large, companies and local communities to play a part in the realisation of these projects.
Planethon-365 will organise a Planethon to raise public and private donations and this will be broadcast by the media. An audiovisual marathon will be organised to spotlight these solutions for the planet.
Planethon-365 will assign funds to the projects selected by a jury of experts (scientific/ethics committee) further to an appeal for projects submitted by associations (NGOs).
Planethon-365 can make citizens and companies aware and inform them, year-round, with regard to ecological and socially responsible behaviour through events, lectures, documentaries, films, testimonies and an on-line platform.
Planethon-365 can work alongside any organisations whose activities are in tune with our goals. Planethon-365 can be developed and deployed in all partner countries.
Planethon-365’s actions are based on an observation: the world must show solidarity. Citizens, associations and companies must act together to face up to social and environmental challenges: #everydaycounts.
Planethon-365’s vision is based on the will to commit, on its values with regard to all stakeholders and to the community as a whole, in order to build lasting relationships and achieve common goals. Planethon-365’s commitment is a promise and an adventure: building tomorrow’s world together.
To achieve the 17 goals of sustainable development, our society must strive for efficiency: to do better while consuming less of our natural resources.
Planethon-365 provides support in a fair manner, depending on requirements and the public’s choice, without any discrimination.
Planethon-365 is at the service of the common interest. Planethon-365 self-imposes complete transparency in its governance, its financial management and in all its activities (selecting projects, partnerships, finance, etc.).
