Fabrice Hossa

Fabrice Hossa (born in 1979) is a french environmentalist and activist. Through his several projects, he created a global movement and collaborated with many talents to highlight the beauty and the plight of our planet for over 12 years. 

Fabrice was raised and inspired by his mother who supported thousands of children orphaned by AIDS in Africa and his father, a wise and generous man. In 2009, he created a collective of artists called Free Spirit. As an ART lover, he organized in 2010 his first photography exhibition in Paris in order to raise funds to support his mother’s non profit organization. 6 talented photographers accepted to be part of that beautiful project. For the first time, Fabrice built a bridge between the beauty of ART and a charity.

Fabrice loves mountains, trekking and traveling. He is literally fascinated by the beauty of nature. In 2017, through his non profit organization Free Spirit, he decided to join the global movement to fight climate change. His work amplifies the voice of the forests, the oceans and the wildlife. The goals of his organization is to raise public awareness on climate change, educate the young generations and take concrete actions on the ground.

Free Spirit Foundation missions are to restore forests across the globe and to create healthy and abundant oceans for us and for the planet. 

He is equally recognized by the conservation community and major organizations (IUCN, UNEP, UNESCO, IFAW,the french Ministry of Ecology…) for his outspoken work and the impact of his projects on nature. Most recently, his organization Free Spirit became an official partner of the United Nations on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030 and the ocean decade 2021-2030 by UNESCO.
