The program in figures

The program

LabCitoyen is a program dedicated to major issues relating to human rights. In France, it calls on about 50 young committed citizens of ages 20 to 26, those who speak and are learning the French language, to receive training on such issues through a series of lectures and discussions.
For about ten days, participants from five continents will come together to give thought to major themes for an exchange of ideas at the international level. On topics such as digital stakes, discrimination, environmental conservation and healthcare rights, LabCitoyen endeavors to deal with the major issues of our time while promoting the French language as a tool for both discussion and action.
