Following the decision of the United States to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the President of the Republic, Emmanuel MACRON, on 1 June 2017, called on scientists, teachers, entrepreneurs, associations and NGOs, students and civil society as a whole to mobilize and join France to lead the fight against global warming and make our planet great again.
Make Our Planet Great Again
This call to pool energies in order to protect the planet demonstrates France’s willingness to stand at the forefront of the fight against global warming.
On June the 8th, a new web-platform has been unveiled: “Make Our Planet Great Again”. This platform aims at helping to mobilize all those wishing to commit themselves to projects, carry on research, take action, seek funding or move to France for the protection of our planet. This action is coordinated by the ministries of Ecological and Sustainable Transition, Foreign and European Affairs, Economic Affairs, Higher Education and Research and Innovation. This website is supported by Business France. It is available in both French and English and provides a single tool that is challenging, practical and action-oriented.
The site is aimed at attracting researchers, entrepreneurs and others to France to pursue efforts to combat climate change.
In a message on the site, Macron says: ‘The planet needs your innovative skills. So, are you IN to change our daily lives and make our planet great again?”
Clicking through the site, users are asked to choose if they are researchers, business people, teachers, students or others.
They are also asked to say which country they come from, and are able to fill in their details with a promise they will be contacted within three days.
