A springtime dedicated to citizenship

The « Printemps de la citoyenneté » was held from March 1 to June 1, 2016, in Paris, with a rich programme.

All residents of Paris were invited to attend the « Printemps de la citoyenneté » event which was held in the different ALJT residences in Paris as well as in Parisian venues. Several events took place during these three months: exhibitions on civil rights and freedom of expression, workshops, films, citizens’ debates, tours of the Senate and the Town Hall of the 18th arrondissement of Paris, training sessions about prevention and civil assistance, race for equality, etc.

The « Printemps de la citoyenneté » event was made possible thanks to the assistance of the young people of the residences and the various partners involved in topics such as citizenship and the living together.

This event highlighted key values such as commitment, freedom, youth and citizenship. It was a great opportunity for young people to meet each other, exchange ideas, opinions, and to debate as citizens. This was certainly an unprecedented and significant initiative for all participating residents.
