France was the first country to submit a bid to host the 2025 World Expo, and under a committed programme to support this application, EXPOFRANCE 2025 has launched the 20’25 Youth Challenge, which is to recruit 100 young ambassadors worldwide to promote the French cause.

So what is the 20’25 Youth Challenge?

Because tomorrow’s world will be shaped by the young people of today, these are the people most concerned by the 2025 World Expo.

This has been very much a generational project from the outset; even the initial bid was put together with input from some 1,000 students from French universities. We’re now stepping up promotion of our application at international scale, inviting young people across the world to stand as ambassadors for our project,” explains Jean-Christophe Fromantin, chairman of the EXPOFRANCE 2025 Committee.

20’25 Youth Challenge is a major international (excluding France) completion launched on 4 April. It seeks to recruit a hundred young people aged 20 to 25 as ambassadors for the French bid in their countries.

How does it work?

Applicants can post a 20-second video or photo demonstrating their attachment to France, on the 20’25 Youth Challenge site by 9 May 2017.

They’ll then be invited to share these posts on their social networks. A shortlist of 400 applicants will be drawn up on the basis of the number of votes obtained.

The shortlisted applicants will then be asked to submit a CV and a one-minute explanatory video for examination by the EXPOFRANCE 2025 jury, who will announce the 100 ambassadors of the French cause in July 2017. The winners will all be invited to attend a seminar on France’s World Fair application during the autumn of 2017, in France.

Renault backs the French application

Groupe Renault became a founder partner of the EXPOFRANCE 2025 project in late 2013, lending its support to an initiative that seeks to muster nationwide mobilization on a bid focused on progress and technology.

Groupe Renault’s involvement in the programme is squarely in line with its own innovation-focused set of values, consistently expressed over more than a century of front-line automotive technology. Renault’s pioneering developments include MPV travelling comfort, zero-emission transport with a full range of all-electric vehicles, today’s connected vehicles, and the autonomous cars of tomorrow. Renault is a driving force in French automotive innovation targeting sustainable transport for all.
