"Le Son qui dérange" - a project by Oxfam-Magasins du monde
“Le Son qui dérange” was born out of a simple observation: young people are aware of and informed about the challenges of cliamte change to say the least, but they lack the practical resources to take action and do not have equal access to the opportunities to do so. This project therefore offers them the opportunity to express themselves and explore this topic for themselves, while providing stimulating workshops – led by Oxfam-Magasins du monde, GSARA and their partners – to further develop their reflection. At the heart of the project lies the will to bring a group of youths together to create a podcast about the fight against the climate crisis that could be used as a tool to further support their engagement.
