At the end of the film, director Pierre Beccu thanked Akuo for his support for the film and beyond for his action in favor of the ecological and humanist transition.

Concretely, the Akuo foundation supports projects aimed at helping underprivileged populations by implementing sustainable solutions for economic and social development. It is also active in developed countries, educating populations to make young people aware of environmental protection.
The PermaSchools are a program developed by ACE environnement and the Akuo Foundation. Formerly Perma'collège, the program has changed its name to extend to high school students.
The objective of PermaSchool is to make young people in France aware of permaculture by installing educational vegetable gardens in their establishments, accompanied by classroom sessions with our animators to explain and discuss with them the issues related to the protection of the environment. biodiversity and eco-gestures. Today, 5 establishments in Île de France benefit from the program.
They learn to prepare and install the earth and the vegetable garden, to plant, to harvest, to carry out sowings and to create a planning of the plantings, to know the cycles of development and to valorize the waste among many other things. Having permaculture vegetable gardens in middle schools allows students to literally consume the fruits of their labor, eat healthy and know what they are eating while doing something for their environment. Growing their own vegetable garden helps prevent air pollution from transporting products and soil pollution by adopting more respectful soil cultivation.
