Celebrating 90 Years of YCW in France

On the occasion of the 90th Anniversary of the YCW in France, the National Movement of JOC (Jeunesse Ouvrière Chrétienne) France organised a big meeting under the theme of "Decent Work", to which YCW England and Wales were also invited. 

More than 4000 young people from across the country gathered to reaffirm their rights and reflect together on possible solutions to the challenges facing young people. 

It was also an opportunity for other National YCW Movements of the ICYCW, such as YCW England and Wales (represented by Amélie) to come and share their experiences within the movement and express solidarity with the French young people for a better future. 

Throughout the day, young people had the possibility to participate in many activities: an exhibition about the 90th anniversary of the YCW, presentations from partners (trade-unions, youth association, etc...) and stands for each YCW region.

The main activity of the day was the series of debates organised in order to allow young people to build together their Book of Demands: by, among and for young people to express their demands for decent work for all. 

The demands were announced at the end of the day and specially addressed to politicians and national leaders.
