Through an artistic approach and unique visual artworks, our aim is to focus attention, educate the younger generation and unite as many people as possible for a cause which concerns all of us.

We highlight the consequences and the dangers related to global warming, climate change and dramatic impact of human being on nature which brings serious concerns.

For many years, we have been witnessing the profusion of extreme climate phenomena such as cyclones, tsunamis, and flooding, and heat waves. Those phenomenons are speeding up with rising ocean temperatures and atmosphere.

Ice melting, deforestation, ocean degradation, drought, ecosystem changes are unprecedented upheavals which need all our attention.

The Essence of life aims to raise awareness, alert, sensitize and educate about climate change and its consequences worldwide.

Free Spirit, a creative family

A passionate global community of artists who care about Human beings and environment. We like combining the talent of several artists such as photographers, costume designers, video directors, makeup artists, models and dancers. We created “The Essence of Life” project” with the aim of raising public awareness on environmental issues and environmental protection.

Our first campaign is about the melting glaciers issue. 16 members of our team went to Iceland in order to raise awareness about global warming. Through our artistic approach, we want to highlight the human being relationship to nature, and the emotion expressed when we face that major issue.

While observing climate evolutions for many decades, we have noticed that the Arctic and Antarctic melting ice caps are significantly speeding up. When reading analyses from many studies, we noticed, for instance, that the glaciation level of both poles had been the lowest ever registered.

Global warming bring about major consequences such as reduction of glaciers area, the melting of ice cap, the recoil of ice floe and icebergs disappearance.

This phenomenon has speeded up for the last decades. The figures describing the reality are staggering. An awareness of individuals is necessary and each person can participate in the collective effort allowing acting for environment.
