Why support CREA Mont-Blanc’s work?

Join us in the adventure

“Following in the footsteps of the early pioneers of scientific exploration in the Mont Blanc massif, we consider both science and the mountains as part of a grand adventure allowing us to better understand the world around us.”

Anne Delestrade, Founder and Director of CREA Mont-Blanc.

CREA Mont-Blanc is an independent and non-political NGO that focuses on using innovative methods for establishing dialogue between scientists and society about ecology and climate change.

We rely on partnerships with private funders because they allow us to be adaptable, to preserve our institutional independence and to deepen our understanding of the relationship between people and their environment. Businesses play a crucial role in enabling our unique approach.
