French haircare/skincare company parent INSTITUT KLORANE-a non-profit, celebrated the UNESCO Green Citizens Partner For Change project's photography exhibit-which included images/info of this foundation's financial support and ongoing initiatives enacting the Great Green Wall against desertification in Africa.
A pre-viewing breakfast took place for a group of beauty editors- in a spacious dining room overlooking the East River -inside the United Nations building complex- busier than usual-filled with a large international group of women attending the 60th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women to focus on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Accordingly, the importance of changing the relationship with nature for children was mentioned as 'a must'---which also included-everyone-as in everyone needs to save the planet-not to assume someone else will.
Amen to that!
