Yves Rocher Foundation: Inviting applications for ‘Terre de Femmes award, named the International Award’ for the award theme –‘ medicinal plants, living heritage and future prospects’ to recognise a project led by a woman or group of women from an association or community network whose main objective relates directly to medicinal plants as part of a biodiversity approach.

Funding brief: In 2019, the Yves Rocher Foundation has created a new Terre de Femmes award, named the International Award. If you are a woman citizen of this beautiful planet and are working to preserve it, and if your project corresponds to the theme set each year, fill out the application form now to apply.

For the 2nd edition, the theme is ‘medicinal plants, living heritage and future prospects’.

In 2020, the International Award will recognize field actions taken by a woman or a group of women, from the nonprofit sector or another support organisation, which directly involve the topic of medicinal plants, their cultivation and their use for human health and well-being.

For example: Projects involving the cultivation of medicinal and aromatic plants as well as projects involving herbal shops or traditional cooperatives or programmes to help disseminate age-old methods of growing these plants, create urban herb gardens, raise awareness of phytotherapy, etc.

In its second year, the International Award will recognise a project led by a woman or group of women from an association or community network whose main objective relates directly to medicinal plants as part of a biodiversity approach. According to the World Health Organization, between 14 and 28 per cent of the world’s plants are listed as having a medical use and nearly 80 per cent of rural populations in developing countries use medicinal plants for primary health care needs. Reflecting age-old practices, medicinal plants have become a modern-day talking point following the growing interest in phytotherapy among the general public. In 2020, the Terre de Femmes INTERNATIONAL AWARD will recognise grassroots actions carried out by local communities, preferably women, that contribute to improved knowledge of medicinal plants, how they are grown and their use in the field of human health and well-being.
