PLANETE+ shows a world on the move, follows the actors of change and invites its public to go forward with those who are inventing the world of tomorrow. Ten years ago, we chose to follow Jérôme Delafosse in his commitment to protect the oceans, an engagement which we initiated together with « People of the Sea » (Les Nouveaux Explorateurs/Canal+).

The Canal+ Group teams onboard Energy Observer

Today, PLANETE+ continues the adventure and joins Energy Observer and its team, lead by Jérôme Delafosse, and Victorien Erussard, Captain, to become the echo of this incredible ecological, environmental and before all, human adventure. An Odyssey on board a revolutionary catamaran entirely dedicated to renewable energies: Energy Observer, already called by some the “modern time COUSTEAU’S CALYPSO” or even the “SOLAR IMPULSE of the seas”.

More than a technological challenge, Energy Observer is the symbol of a world in movement. It’s a bet on audacity, the promise of changing a paradigm for the best. With this vessel, PLANETE+ engages itself once again in a visionary way. a brand new lab giving us the possibility to tackle new subjects, thanks to a documentary film realized by Jérôme Delafosse, named Odyssey for the Future.

In total, 8 episodes retracing this modern saga were broadcast for the Planete+ 30th anniversary, in September 2018. Raise awareness, share, reenchant… Welcome onboard the adventure!

“This challenge deserves our support, our encouragement and our recognition for future generations. With Energy Observer, PLANETE+ engages itself once again in a visionary way: a brand new lab giving us the possibility to tackle new subjects, follow innovative perspectives, new scriptures and thus guaranty the diversity of the documentary film genre. Take the planet’s pulse. Sensitize, share, inspire... Welcome on board!”
