« Our philosophy puts down roots on the current and the pressing necessity to support the young generation ambitions and dreams. This necessity answers global economical and social stakes which we have to take into consideration during this period of deep changes we are going through and during which the most vulnerable people must be assisted. »

Ten years ago, Earthtalent by Bolloré purpose was based on three beliefs dedicated to women empowerement.
In the coming years despite worldwide disruptions, companies will remain the only enduring and strong financial structures whose core energy is made of women and men equal in rights.
New technologies are the main tools of social mobility, they are tools of collective intelligence and of solidarity innovations.
Creativity is booming during times of crisis. Focusing this energy in favor of a cause may be a lever to change behaviors and mindsets. Today this purpose is made to support young people empowerement and embodies the absolute necessity to create and reinforce the existing bounds between generations.
Comittment is our core value. The idea of comittments reciprocity made with our stakeholders ensures the durability of our actions.
Knowing how to reconsider to be the closest possible to others and ourselves.
Cultivating differences as a wealth.
Feeling ourselves more than responsible for the coming generations.
Believing in our abilities is also believing in others abilities, and to change each opportunity into actions
Our mission is to reveal and to support local talents and projects by relying on proximity anchoring which allows us to be as close as possible to cultural, social and economical issues of local people.
To respond to social challenges that young people are facing, this program ambition is to accompany projects that help young people empowerement and which have a significant social impact as for younger generations as local communities. Our goal is to put young people in the core of businesses concerns, especially when these are present in countries which do not always provide for the youth the ability to express themelves and to start a business.
To reach these ambitions, we comitt our subsidiaries and our colleagues into projects which improve young people economical and social situation and which help punctually and efficiently humanitarian health actions. Business contribution to UN Sustainable Developpment Goals, espacially those in favor of access to education and professional training (SDG 4), those in favor of having a decent job which contributes to a sustainable economic growth (SDG 8), remain the cornerstone of the Bolloré Group solidarity and of the Earthtalent by Bollore program reinvented for this mission.
