Because artists can suggest their vision of the world and be a critical vehicle for educating the public, because these major issues are now ubiquitous and are not solely the responsibility of scientists, it is extremely important that a festival such as Planet Nepal exists.
Planet Nepal is a multidiscipline festival that gives space to artists who are working and interacting every day with contemporary environmental issues. It aims to create both an international and Nepalese community proactively engaging on this topic through artistic activities.
In 2016, the Alliance française and the French Embassy have decided to embrace the World Environment Day theme:
Zero tolerance for the illegal wildlife trade
- Increase the environmental awareness and engage the audience to take action
- Create a committed community about environmental issues
- Enhance artistic production on that topic
- Promote an event for everyone: kids and adults
