Symbiom celebrates and thanks all the women who participated directly or indirectly in HOPES

These women come from all horizons: from all continents, all cultures, all ethnicities. They have different backgrounds and sensibilities. They are professors, doctors, journalists, farmers, scientists, lawyers, sociologists, paleontologists, anthropologists, ethologists, politicians, Nobel Prize winners... They are women of influence in the noblest sense of the term. They are women of influence in the noblest sense of the word, because the influence they have is related to the promotion of democracy and peace, but also to equity and the protection of the environment. They are committed to the living (from humanity to animals and biodiversity), and they militate for the defense of the rights of human beings, animals and nature. They join the fight against climate change, they are against all forms of conflict and violence, which does not prevent some of them from being rebels. They work so that the Earth is respected, preserved, restored and this, by all means, whether they come from space or from the earth, and in all forms that it is by Laws, constructive debates with the citizens or by making the voice of the most vulnerable heard, but also by Art and Science. They promote beauty, harmony, consciousness, inspiration, and then the mobilization of knowledge whether traditional and ancestral or modern and innovative. They are undeniably oriented towards social and environmental justice. Finally, what connects them in an invisible way is this fight for resilience and this strong feeling of belonging to a great whole of which the Earth is the beating heart.
