A plea to change the system
Beyond the direct impact, ‘Chemins d'avenirs’ clearly understood that in order to tackle such a societal issue, it is important to activate the right means of transformation and to get to the root of the problem. The challenge is to change mindsets in a way that French society recognizes the struggle faced by millions of young people and to finally designs programs adapted to these issues. To trigger this change, ‘Chemins d'avenirs’ developed a strategy to influence public authorities, businesses, the media, social economy actors and, more broadly, the general public. Through reports, opinion polls, books, concrete recommendations and coalition events, the organization's advocacy work is essential in the fight against regional gaps, both in France and in Europe.
