The opening of “Earth from Above” Exhibit.

Her Royal Highness the Princess Lalla Hasnaa, President of Mohammed VI Foundation for the Protection of Environment has presided at the Arab League Park in Casablanca the opening of “Earth from Above” Exhibit;  An aerial  portrait  of  our  planet for  a  Sustainable  Development,  elaborated  by  Yann Arthus-Bertrand.


Through this exhibit, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the witness photographer, has wished to join the efforts of Mohammed VI Foundation for the  Protection of  Environment  in reaching  a great number of people and  raising  the  Moroccan public’s  awareness  about  the  impacts  generated  by  the  current  modes  of consumption,   production,  natural  resources  exploitation  and  the  actions  undertaken  to  achieve  the sustainable development.

This  exhibit comprises 120  photographs, including wonderful pictures of Morocco, remarkable  for their  esthetic  quality  together with explanatory legends.  These photos  are accompanied  not  only  with  alarming messages that raise consciousness about the world situation, but also with messages full of hope illustrated through concrete examples stimulating action in this field.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand invites us  to a  journey, a  fruit  of a  patient  inquiry  work,  started in  1990, representing  4000  hours  of  helicopter  flight and  about  a hundred  of  countries  visited.  These  aerial photographs reflect not only the  variety of  natural environments  and  life  expressions,  but  also  man’s impact as well as his influence on  environment.
