Create a space for expression and sharing, highlight the initiatives of young people from Bordeaux and raise awareness of the climate emergency.

This is the ambition of the Printemps des expressions (PREX) organized by the town hall of Bordeaux, which returns for its second edition, from March 21 to 24.

This year, the theme focuses on "

the city facing the climate emergency

", with the aim of "

sharing experiences and allowing triggers

", with highlights organized according to age groups.

A theme that is all the more topical with the release on Monday of the latest IPCC report.

It is the Bacchanight, the annual nocturne of the Museum of Fine Arts in Bordeaux, which will serve as the opening of the PREX this Tuesday, with 32 projects created by more than a hundred students from all disciplines.

A logical choice according to Sylvie Schmitt, deputy mayor in charge of education, childhood and youth, because this evening “

entrusts a museum to young people

” and therefore perfectly matches the spirit of the PREX.

A night completely free and "

open to all the curious

", from 8 p.m. to midnight.

On the program for this evening inspired by the celebrations given in honor of the god Bacchus, several one-off and continuous events in the museum and the adjoining garden of the town hall, ranging from dancing to wine tasting and poetry. ,

A program designed with young people

A festive opening for an appointment which wants to put the 11-25 years in the spotlight.

We wanted to highlight the commitments of young people

,” explains Sylvie Schmitt.

For teenagers, round tables will be organized this Wednesday at the town hall, around four themes: eating, getting around, nature in the city and waste management.

These moments of exchange are intended to feed the "

great citizen dialogue

" launched this year by the town hall of Bordeaux on the same theme, which should lead to a citizens' convention.

On Thursday 23 and Friday 24 March, the two evenings organized at the Hôtel Ragueneau, rue du Loup, will be aimed more at 18-25 year olds, through a "program designed with young people

and associations

”, specifies the elected official.

Students and young workers will be able to “

discover the solutions offered by Bordeaux associations

”, in different fields: responsible digital, water management, “

fast fashion

” and the media.

A masterclass on "

the production of information in the era of climate change

" will also take place from 6:30 p.m.

During these four days, the initiatives of young people will be put forward, with an evening of discovery on March 24 in the presence of the former winners of the call for projects "I take up the challenge", which allows Bordeaux residents aged 13 to


to have the town hall carry out their project around culture, sport, solidarity or environmental protection.

All ideas are good to imagine as long as they open up to others and concern the people of Bordeaux.


For the first edition, photographs were hung in the town hall.

This year, 44 portraits of committed young people and volunteers are to be found on the gates of the public garden, ranging from members of the municipal children's council to "

ambassadors of the culture pass

" to volunteers in civic service.

In conjunction with some thirty partner associations of the event, the PREX plans to double attendance from last year.

A hundred young people are expected for Wednesday's workshops and a gauge of 300 people is planned for Thursday and Friday evenings.
