Bioviva Editions have created, developed and marketed educational games based on Nature and child development since 1996.As an underlying principle, we ensure that our games provide awareness of the respect of ourselves, of others and of the planet.
We also meet the challenge of a production that is 100% made in Europe (France) and that of an eco-design that helps us reduce our environmental impact.
This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Nature Challenge, our collection for children that has become a must!
And because we always want to go one step further, we have created the “Bioviva For Life!” Foundation, whose first action is the distribution of a million games to refugee children around the world.
