Discuss, Act, Change – Youth 2022
The Cercle des économistes started from an observation: youth was the great forgotten of the last presidential campaign. What if, before proposing measures for those who will make tomorrow, we started by giving them a voice? This is the conviction that led to the launch of Discuss, Act, Change – Youth 2022 in partnership with SNCF, La Poste, Wavestone and La Plateforme.
A conversation on an unprecedented scale, conducted using the conversational medium Jam, without taboos or prejudices, to build together concrete measures in favour of young people, which will be presented at the next Rencontres Économiques d’Aix-en-Provence, on 8, 9 and 10 July.
The 15 key figures
It is difficult, when you are young, to project yourself collectively into the future and to invent other ways of living as a society. However, the vectors of commitment are there (climate, inequalities…), but young people do not feel represented by the institutions in place.
Although the transition between student and professional life can be tricky, the vast majority of young people still believe in the virtues of education… provided that the system is thoroughly rethought.
The climate generation is not a myth. Faced with the environmental crisis, young people say they are ready to take radical action, both individually and collectively.
Will restoring meaning to work be enough to give young people a taste for it? Not so sure, when the majority of young people are worried about their professional future, and seem above all to be looking for security and a work/life balance.
