Through the Botany for Change Award, launched in November 2015, Klorane Botanical Foundation called on students in botany, horticulture, architecture and landscaping to add plants to our lives by imagining “Tomorrow’s urban garden.” In May 2016, the four plant creations selected by the jury were revealed to the general public on the Parvis de l’Hôtel de Ville in Paris.
For the 2017 event, on the “Botany and the 5 senses” theme, the award-winning plant creation will start to grow permanently in La Villette (Paris).
DERMOCONTROL®: A MOBILE APPLICATION TO LIVE MORE COMFORTABLY WITH ECZEMA

This was developed in partnership with l’Association Française de l’Eczéma, (the French eczema association), la Fondation pour la dermatite atopique (the Pierre Fabre Group foundation for atopic dermatitis) and le Réseau National de Surveillance Aérobiologique (R.N.S.A) (French national network of aerobiological monitoring).
