An evening with 500 decision-makers, influencers and key players

We are living in a difficult time, in a country that feels fragmented with no clear way forward. We therefore need authentic and original stories that can bring people together, excite them and provide a call to action.The challenge is to come together to tackle a wide range of issues, whether climate-related, environmental, or economic.Reporters d’Espoirs has been working for 15 years for information companies and the media to make people want to act. The NGO came up with the concept of solutions journalism, which exists today around the world.It is a question of coming up with constructive initiatives, and of speaking all about France, creating new narratives, showcasing the ideas of a new “French dream”. In 2019, France Solutions explores four structured themes surrounding a “French dream”:                  

  • France is the sea                  
  • France is beautiful                  
  • France is industry                   
  • France is us
