About the NGO Le Projet Imagine:

Le Projet Imagine is an NGO that works with the media to raise awareness about the urgent need to save not the world but rather the beauty of the world. Because the world itself will survive, one way or another. Their response is to produce films that follow the same editorial line: journalism with hope. Characterized by a helpful, open, constructive outlook, their films are designed to make people want to do something. The ultimate goal is to generate a broad popular movement - the "Imagine" movement - that seeks to invent a different way of being in the world.
