Hello Earth, here the youth

Warning ! This video may shock some adults. 

The tone of this video may seem provocative, it is the one chosen by some children and young people and we respect it.

Beyond provocation, this poses interesting questions.

For some children, confidence in adults is lost. They feel betrayed, or abandoned by the inability of adults to change.

How to restore confidence? Who can they trust? Shouldn't trust be mutual? As soon as we come into the world, we need mutual trust to build us. Education and authority cannot be built on violence, abandonment or betrayal.

Everything that is said in this video was expressed by the children. Writes and repeats in front of the camera of course, but these are their own words.

Seeds of hope-the film, it is 332 children gathered without casting, from Grenoble to Ouaga, from Champigny sur Marne to Madagascar, by word of mouth between teachers, 332 young people who work in whole class, in constituted groups. They learn to film, to take sound, to edit. At the same time, with no other tools than their senses, they perceive and feel the nature that surrounds them (even if in some cases it is necessary to go a bit far to find it). Then, they try to tell, to create.

This “Guilty Alert” aspect in this video is part of the making of. The scene will not be in the final cut. This interests us less than the concrete proposals and actions that children and young people have unearthed in each territory. And that we can discover and share on other pages of this site.
