It was a pleasure to have been approached to participate in the “Jénès Nou Pa Ka Fè LaFèt” (translation: “Our youth is not kidding”) in Martinique.
The aim is to promote and reward young people with original, feasible projects that impact society and the region on such issues as the solidarity economy, entrepreneurship, digital technology, eco-tourism, etc.
This edition began with the opening of entries in December 2021 and will end with the awards ceremony in June 2022.
