The INF-FNI marked its 70th anniversary at a special event at CHM Montalivet, in western France.

Around 100 naked people witnessed the unveiling of a new plaque on the monument commemorating the organisation.

Those values are the acceptance of everyone, without distinction, with the same benevolence, welcoming everyone without judgment, whatever their origins or physical appearance; in short, respect for everyone, without distinction.Photo of monument at Montalivet commemorating INF-FNI

Earlier, the group visited the chalet at the site commemorating Albert and Christiane Lecocq, founders of the Montalivet site  and among the pioneers of modern naturism.

The weekend celebration was attended by Naturists from around the world representing 20 countries, among others from Canada, Mexico and South Africa.

The weekend included workshops, opportunities to try out naturist sports, a wine-tasting and a gala dinner.
