A few months before the presidential election, what do the young people of our country think? What are their dreams, their aspirations, their fears? What does their daily life look like? What is their perspective on the campaign and the upcoming election? Who are the 15-25 year olds really? You have to go out to meet them, question them, listen to them. Far from clichés, give a voice to this generation too often described as sacrificed, irresponsible or disenchanted.
The university, the engagements
Podcast Make way for young people aims to highlight French youth in all its diversity, through interviews with young people under 25. For this fourth episode, interview with Lucas, 19 years old.
Lucas came back and forth from the Lille suburbs for our exchange. He cannot stay very long because, at 5.30 pm, he must be back in Linselles, where he works at the day center, in parallel with his lessons. Pity. I would have spent hours chatting with this second year history student at college. Often funny, sometimes sour, always precise, Lucas will tell us about his atypical school and personal career and his commitments – associative, musical and religious.
An interview with Salomé Berlioux, founder and managing director of the Chemins d’avenirs association, which supports several thousand young people in building their academic, professional and civic career. This podcast is broadcast in partnership with 20 minutes, West France and the Jean-Jaurès Foundation.
