The Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for the Progress of Humankind (FPH) is a Swiss foundation that makes grants to civil society movements and organisations to support their actions in favour of a social and ecological transition.
Monde Pluriel, created in 2006, is a French non-profit association based in Grenoble. Through its projects to educate people on the transition to sustainable societies, the association supports and develops the active citizenship of young people, social cohesion, and understanding between young people from different countries and diverse social origins. The association operates on the local, as well as the European level, particularly in the framework of the Let’s Take Care of the Planet network, which it coordinates.
Network coordination involves linking various actors: civil society organisations involved in informal environmental education, teachers and civil servants in the formal public education system and territorial authorities in France and other European countries. Exchanges within the network serve to pool experience and create a framework to support the development of educational projects to make young people aware of the connections between the global and local levels, and between disciplines.
Promote active citizenship and the commitment of young people by helping them understand the complexity of the world, allowing them to participate in societal debate on sustainable development and making their voices heard on the local, national and international scenes. Monde Pluriel leads the ‘Let’s Take Care of the Planet’ dynamic in France and Europe, a movement that allows young people to “enquire, discuss and commit themselves” to sustainable societies.
