“Each of us matters. Each individual makes a difference every day. We must use the gift of our lives to make this world a better place for everyone and all." (Jane Goodall)
In the light of the learning of services and of the citizens’ science, we will be resorting to various initiatives arising from close collaboration between scientists and young people, based on the principle that boys and girls have the capacity to transform the world.
We will also discover how technology, in this case, mobile technologies, can be an essential tool to find a solution to universal world challenges.
