EIGHT “TROPHÉES EUROPE 1 DE L’AVENIR” AWARDS: PROMOTING A SUSTAINABLE AND HARMONIOUS SOCIETY

Because the main responsibility of a media company is to make the world around us, along with the changes and revolutions occurring within it, understandable, Lagardère Active is committed to constantly creating new spaces for discussion and new modes of expression.

 
 

After holding its first awards ceremony in 2015 with the focus on climate, in 2016 Europe 1 wanted to promote the values of optimism and innovation by encouraging women and men – researchers, students, entrepreneurs, writers, citizens and elected officials – with a desire for change to play an active role in building a sustainable and harmonious society.

The “Trophées Europe 1 de l’Avenir” awards therefore highlighted projects driven by major social issues and inspiring people in areas such as education, health, food, books and cities.

A jury of 11 people, including Lagardère Active staff and outsiders and chaired by Bertrand Piccard (who piloted the Solar Impulse solar aircraft), gave “Trophées Europe 1 de l’Avenir” awards to eight recipients in a ceremony that was broadcast live on Europe 1 in December 2016.
