Special Envoy of the President of the French Republic for Protecting the Planet, President of the Nicolas Hulot Foundation for Nature and Mankind, reporter, writer and television producer.
Nicolas Hulot was born on April 30, 1955 in Lille (France). He has been a reporter, writer and television program-maker. Ushuaïa Nature, for instance, has been broadcast in 35 countries. In 1990 he established the Nicolas Hulot Foundation for Nature and Mankind, a leading environmental NGO aiming at encouraging changing consumption patterns throughout society (citizens, policy-makers, business people…). He has been chairing it ever since. Through his Foundation, he invited the 2007 French Presidential candidates to commit to an Ecological Pact. The Pact was then backed by around 750 000 people, and it helped put environment high on the political agenda. He was appointed as Special Envoy of the President of the French Republic for Protecting the Planet in December 2012.
