WikiStage La Paillasse 1
  • Description

    "These are things going on for some years now, is to arrive on other disciplines that are inspired by these materials derived from living."

    "We also discover today uses in the field of living for electronics, based on biodegradable circuit, we seem to find in phones that maybe tomorrow will become completely biodegradable." "[.. .] The tools for producing these materials are inaccessible, expensive and very complicated to reuse. Here [...] we want to allow people to get back in ability to produce themselves their own materials, and reusing and to remake themselves the tools that produce these materials. "

    "The challenge for us is really to put the citizen at the heart of this creation process, allowing document with an open search process and collaborative creation of these tools but also their use."

    "We think that in the coming years there is a huge issue on micro-factories recreation, prototyping and manufacturing of these materials, for which we invite everyone to re-enter these issues there, rethink that can be self-wide territory, and start offering alternative plants models to address issues of living and make something together.

Comment changer le monde en 2 heures?
WikiStage PantheonSorbonne 1
  • Description

    "I wanted something, I wanted to help others, to get involved, but in what and how, I had no idea."

    "So to help as many people to get involved, I decided to write a guide, it's called" Changing the world in 2 hours. "This is a guide for anyone who wants to change the world but who do not know where to begin. The idea is to show you micro-commitments, means to have a positive impact quickly by contributing to projects of general interest. The logic behind this is say: what if the easiest way to change the world was to help those who already do? "

    "I do not feel that the challenge today is so much on innovation and entrepreneurs. It's a bit provocative, and yet of course there needs innovation , today for most societal problems [...] there are people who have found solutions that's just we do not know the the challenge today is that these.. solutions are adopted massively. So the challenge is on civil society, it is about all of us, it is about you and it's on me. [...] They need a lot of people who support these projects . "

Why men should invest in women?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    "I'm a firm believer that media can be a tool to change the perception that men have on women."

    "A lot of programs that we [at the Womanity Foundation] are doing is, we start things and we collaborate with people. That's been the big frustration for me in philanthropy, there are not enough people collaborating together and too many people doing the same thing."

    "We have a program to help social entrepreneurs scale their impact, with consulting firms although we initially started with pro bono."

    "For girls' education we have two programs in two countries. First one is in Afghanistan, where we transform state schools into model schools. We don't do what the government should do, which is paying the teachers and the infrastructures. We train the teachers, we develop the curriculum with them and we bring other activities like introducing sports into women schools. [...] We believe in giving the same chances."

Why more women at the top means better performance?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    “Why woman matters? Why does it matter to have more women at the top of corporation? Does it really matter for company performance? And so we did a big research across the globe and the answer to these questions was yes, hopefully. Yes it matters, it matters for company performance. It maters for company’s organizational performance. (…) and it matters, above all, in terms of financial performance. So what we found out is that companies with more than three women in their board are more performant than companies with no women in their board.”



Le futur de Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon est-il Arctique?
WikiStage La Paillasse 1
  • Description

    "L'Unesco a declaré en 1979 que Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon était un territoire sub-polaire et qu'en fait la seule forêt boréale française est à Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon"

    "Aujourd'hui 51% de PBI de l'archipel depend de la puissance publique de manière générale. (...) Si l'administration de Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon est innovante et soutien de l'innovation, là on a le combo gagnant"

    "Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon est un peu indépendant de la France, cela veut dire qu'ils peuvent développer leur gouvernance comme ils veulent, ils peuvent développer leur fiscalité comme ils veulent. (...) On pourrait développer une collectivité unique; il y a de municipalités, un conseil territorial (,,,) et on mixe tout ça. On pourrait développer de nouvelles formes de gouvernance qui pourraient être testées à cet endroit là. "

    "Si vous êtes à Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, vous avez quand même une isolation qui est toute relative, et cette isolation qui est toute relative, elle vous permettra de créer une bulle qui fera en sorte qu'un écosystème d'innovations complètement nouveaux pourra émerger"

The new cyberwave of women's empowerment?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    "That call from a mobile phone in the middle of a cemetery was really the beginning of my digital awakening. And it helped inspiring me to found W4 in 2012 (...). W4 stands for Women's WWW and we're Europe's first crowdfunding platform dedicated to girls' and women's empowerment in the world."

    "From the Philippines to Pakistan, from Cameroun to Cambodia, the world is being made better by the impact of two powerful growing trends and they're arguably two of the most important trends in the 21st century: digital technologies and women's empowerment. Together they lie at the heart of our work at W4."

    "Here we are in the 21st century and yet women and girls still bear the greater burden of poverty and suffer widespread abuses of their rights. Incredibly and unacceptably violence against girls and women remains a global pandemic, the most widespread human's rights violation"

    "The good news is that a global women's empowerment movement has been gaining a momentum. The world is waking up. Consistently, from the micro to the macro level, it has been proven that when we educate girls, when we protect girls' and women's human rights, when we promote gender equality, we drive socio-economic progress."

What is the power of voice?
WikiStage Empow'Her
  • Description

    "I am a mother, I am an activist, I am an author, an adventurer, I'm the founder of a non profit. I am a feminist and I am a victim of gender violence. And, more importantly, I am a voice. I am one of over 7 billions voices in the world and having a voice means using it."

    "Many consider that I'm a feminist because I'm a woman. And of course, I want for myself the right to vote, the right for equal pay, the ability to have my own decisions about my body and my future but I don't think it's radical to say that I want the same freedoms as men and that my gender shouldn't have nothing to do with it."

    "I believe that women's right it's a human's rights issue and it does involve men, that does involve the global community stepping up and taking a look at gender equity and gender violence as a real issue that affects everyone."

    "I can feel the apathy that prevents change and action and yet through that apathy and through the outrage that nothing was changing, I wondered why wasn't everyone doing anything about it... (...) and I realized that 'Yea, I am someone'. Individual action does matter. Because in the face of these issues - gender equity, genocide, the environment, sex trafficking - these issues are not gonna be solved by governments and multinational corporations or the would have been solved. These issues are going to change with individual action and individual voices insisting upon change amongst the structures that are there to create change"

What is the future of new media entertainment?
WikiStage ESCP Europe 5
  • Description

    "We're really going to the point where if you can imagine it, you can make it - you can print it actually."

    "Entertainment has always been at the forefront of the free speech of the free expression. (...) I think that we're really coming to a crossroad here. There's a lot of confusion in this discussion."

    "The two doctrines around free speech that are important to bear in mind is on a one hand - 'could whatever we express could actually lead to some sort of bad tendency?' (...). The other doctrine which is more bottom up says 'does whatever you express lead to a clear and present danger'?"

    "We know that in terms of gender based violence men still are the main perpetrators and women are the main victims all over the world"
