Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
    This description of Claire Escriva's work was prepared when Claire Escriva was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Claire Escriva is transforming early childhood education in France by connecting young children, especially in urban settings, to nature and the environment, and by providing a new Ecolo-Crèche certification to those early childhood education centers or kindergartens that commit to a high-standard of environmental conservation in their daily operations. By experimenting with new audiences and sectors, Claire seeks to change attitudes toward the environment and environmental conservation by reaching children at the youngest ages and by ensuring that those who work with them model the best behaviors in their daily activities.
