Paris, February 16, 2010

As a committed, civic-minded channel, Gulli works actively throughout the year, both in its programming and in the field, to convey the values of tolerance, respect, eco-citizenship and generosity

“We have been working for several months on a wonderful campaign alongside Pascal Obispo, who accompanied us last year to the rally for reforestation held on 22 April at the Great Dune of Pilat.

This year, with children in tow, we will be planting the flag for Captain Samouraï Flower, the nature-loving character created by Pascal, with the goal of protecting sites beloved by children throughout this beautiful country. We hope that this symbol will offer hope to the younger generation, the doers of today and the decision-makers of tomorrow.”

Karine Leyzin
Gulli Programming Director

Showcasing the wealth of our planet and the beauty of its landscapes, this short programme is designed to make children more aware of efforts to preserve our resources and the harm done to our planet each day.

Made by and for children, the programme addresses the issue of environmentalism from an entirely new perspective. It features both real-life photography and illustrations inspired by the works of Pascal Obispo to accompany children’s narratives, which will be entertaining and informative for viewers, all set to Pascal’s music.

Young boys and girls from around France will tell Gulli viewers about the region where they live, while sounding the alarm about threats to the environment. They will explain why each site is so remarkable and the dangers that, in their view, threaten its survival.
