Launch of the First Green Games
PARIS, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
The Green Games were born out of necessity: the need to make young people aware of
environmental problems. And what better way is there to attract the attention of children
aged 6 to 12 years old than an event mixing sport, entertainment and personal enrichment?
The project was pioneered by Clemence and Emmanuel Errard and their son Jules (9 years
old). During the course of the two-year project (April 2011 to April 2013) they have met
global personalities from the world of environmental protection: United States, Canada,
Peru, Brasil, Chili, Argentina, Australia, Thailand, Cambodia, China, Japan, India,
Senegal, Switzerland and more.

The Green Games project has won over the audience in every country visited on the
promotional tour. The personalities who have accepted to sponsor the Green Games are
subsequently named Guardian Angels of the Planet. Their role is to pass on to children
their experience, knowledge and environmental awareness so that they too can dedicate
themselves to the global environmental protection project.
This world tour has resulted in 100 Guardian Angels across 5 continents being
recruited. Thanks to the support given by these prestigious sponsors, the Green Games are
going to become a reality. The Founding Congress will be held at the UNESCO headquarters
in Paris on June 3, 4 and 5 in partnership with the Global Conference. The shortlists will
be done by internet and the Green Games finals will bring together children from across
the world in June 2015.
The Green Games will be officially launched on June 4, 2013 at 17:00 at the UNESCO
building in Paris in the presence of twenty or so Guardian Angels of the Planet, among
which are the living legend Sylvia Earle, the first woman aquanaut; George Schaller,
considered to be the father of wildlife conservation; Bindeshwar Pathak, considered to be
the new Gandhi; Jean-Michel Cousteau, prince of the oceans; Phra Anil Sakya, descended
from the Buddha; and philosopher Sheri Xiaoyi Liao, selected from among ten exceptional
