HEC Paris students and Professor involved in La France s’engage au Sud1 September 2015
La France s’engage au Sud («France commits to the South») is the first outgrowth of La France s’engage , an initiative launched by the French President François Hollande in 2014.
ABOUT LA FRANCE S’ENGAGE
After the success of the first two rounds of La France s’engage , in June 2014 and March 2015, the French President decided to extend the program to social innovation in countries in the southern hemisphere to strengthen partnerships and promote projects initiated there and that can encourage the emergence of innovation in our countries.
La France s’engage au Sud helps project leaders from Africa, the Middle East, Latin America or Asia take a step forward, by providing visibility, partnerships and support. By changing scale, these social innovations can benefit more and more citizens.
The call for applications for La France s’engage au Sud
started on 24 April 2015.
Applications are assessed by a selection committee and a panel consisting of figures from the NGO, humanitarian, business, cultural and media sectors among whom Bénédicte Faivre-Tavignot, co-founder and co-director of the HEC Paris Social Business/Enterprise and Poverty Chair.
A dozen of HEC Paris students are currently reviewing the projects, conducting Skype interviews with project leaders to clarify and complete if needed the files. These students come from the MSc/Major in Sustainability and Social Innovation and the MBA Net Impact Club.
The 2015 prizewinners will receive their awards in late September.
