ecological transition

Let's give young people the means to commit to the climate!

Start
Are you between 15 and 35? Because you are the climate generation, the generation that will live through the challenge of climate change, which is deepening inequalities in France and around the world. Because you are a generation of solidarity, determined to understand the causes of a climate that is getting out of control and eager to act at its level: the new "Climate Generation" programme is for you.
Conceived by the Nicolas Hulot Foundation and FORIM, this programme gives 15-35 year olds the means to become actors of solidarity and support them in the implementation of climate projects in France or abroad. Information, workshops to help structure field projects, support mechanisms to finance them... Everything is done to create the desire to act and encourage new initiatives in France and abroad. Follow the guide!

Climate Generation: a programme to put youth into action

The objectives of the "Generation Climate" programme are to make young people aware of the challenges of climate change and the resulting inequalities, to encourage them to become actors of solidarity and to support them in the definition and implementation of projects in France and abroad. Conceived by the Foundation for Nature and Mankind and the Forum of International Solidarity Organisations Emerging from Migration (FORIM), this programme was designed to encourage citizenship and "acting together" among our multicultural youth.
 
It is therefore a complete path of commitment, from reflection to action in the field, which is proposed to young people aged 15 to 35. Information days on the links between climate and agriculture, waste management, deforestation, energy; exchange forums, project writing workshops, financial mechanisms, making the most of young people's contributions... numerous activities will be set up by a diversified network of relay actors, present throughout France. By supporting youth initiatives, Génération Climat hopes to encourage others to get involved in their turn.

What tools?

An educational program to answer questions such as: What are the links and impacts of climate change on agriculture, waste management, energy, deforestation?
Practical information sheets who give the first advices to build a project: How to create your association? What is a junior association? How to set up or finance a project?
A map of local actors to be informed about climate change and international solidarity or to be accompanied in your project, and contact the structure nearest to you.

How do I get involved?

Do you have a project to fight climate change and inequality? You can apply for three support schemes: Agir en France, Agir à l'international, Agir en service civique. To apply, three forms corresponding to each of the schemes are available are online on the site. Over two years, 100 initiatives in France and the South will be financed.

They have committed...

Baptiste N. and Clément P.: Committed to reducing the amount of electronic waste : Baptiste Nominé and Clément Poudret created the Atelier Soudé in Villeurbanne (Rhône) to reduce the amount of electronic waste, fight against programmed obsolescence and help users to reappropriate their objects. This shared workshop offers participants the opportunity to get involved in repairing their defective devices. The next step of the project is to propose a toolkit to set up other workshops.
 
 
Faiza Hajji: Committed to the fight against plastic pollution in Morocco : Faiza Hajji has set up a project to reuse plastic in Berkane, her hometown, to create useful objects and give work back to craftswomen in rural areas. In 10 years, more than 50,000 plastic bags have been collected. In addition to cleaning up the town, the initiative has helped to raise awareness of the problem of waste.

Nous avons un message pour vous…

En octobre dernier nous avons pris l’engagement que UP’ Magazine accordera au dérèglement climatique, à l’extinction des espèces sauvages, à la pollution, à la qualité de notre alimentation et à la transition écologique l’attention et l’importance urgentes que ces défis exigent. Cet engagement s’est traduit par le partenariat de UP’ Magazine avec Covering Climate Now, une collaboration mondiale de 250 médias sélectionnés pour renforcer la couverture journalistique des enjeux climatiques.

Nous promettons de vous tenir informés des mesures que nous prenons pour nous responsabiliser à ce moment décisif de notre vie. La désinformation sur le climat étant monnaie courante, et jamais plus dangereuse qu’aujourd’hui, il est essentiel que UP’ Magazine publie des rapports précis et relaye des informations faisant autorité – et nous ne resterons pas silencieux.

Notre indépendance éditoriale signifie que nous sommes libres d’enquêter et de contester l’inaction de ceux qui sont au pouvoir. Nous informerons nos lecteurs des menaces qui pèsent sur l’environnement en nous fondant sur des faits scientifiques et non sur des intérêts commerciaux ou politiques. Et nous avons apporté plusieurs modifications importantes à notre expression éditoriale pour que le langage que nous utilisons reflète fidèlement, mais sans catastrophisme, l’urgence environnementale.

UP’ Magazine estime que les problèmes auxquels nous sommes confrontés dans le cadre de la crise climatique sont systémiques et qu’un changement sociétal fondamental est nécessaire. Nous continuerons à rendre compte des efforts des individus et des communautés du monde entier qui prennent courageusement position pour les générations futures et la préservation de la vie humaine sur terre. Nous voulons que leurs histoires inspirent l’espoir.

Nous espérons que vous envisagerez de nous soutenir aujourd’hui. Nous avons besoin de votre soutien pour continuer à offrir un journalisme de qualité, ouvert et indépendant. Chaque abonnement des lecteurs, quelle que soit sa taille, est précieux. Soutenez UP’ Magazine à partir d’1.90 € par semaine seulement – et cela ne prend qu’une minute. Merci de votre soutien.
