Each year, the festival is proud to carry out many actions to make the festival a space for sharing, discussion and exchange. Rock en Seine participate in the awareness of contemporary societal issues and to act concretely through the construction of a parity program, the implementation of accessibility devices or the consideration of sustainable development issues…
The festival also uses its plateform to raise awareness on these issues among its community and festival-goers through its “Rock en Seine s’engage” program and the ACT! zone (Act, Create, Transmit!) installed at the heart of the festival. Set up to raise the voices of commitment and reflection, this space complements the festival-goers’ experience at Rock en Seine.
Since 2010, the three winning associations of our annual call for projects are hosted each year on the festival. Supported by the media Carenews and the platform HelloAsso, this initiative concerns organizations serving the general interest in a will of coherence with Rock en Seine’s long-term CSR policy.
This year, among a hundred applications, the jury selected PikPik Environnement, MAG Jeunes LGBT+ and the solidary Hackathon initiated by LISAA Mode Paris school and the Secours populaire de Paris. These associations will benefit from the visibility offered by Rock en Seine through communication relays, fundraising through a system of donations on the ticketing, and especially a stand on the festival that will allow them to exchange and promote their actions to the 160,000 festival-goers expected.
Protecting one’s health, protecting the planet, eating local/organic/seasonal food while the public has decreasing financial means: this is the challenge of the PikPik Environnement association.
It is a project born in 2008 and initiated by a group of committed mothers to raise awareness on ecology among the families of Issy-les-Moulineaux, near Paris. This initiative is concretized in the form of an association in 2009 by Kaméra Vesic. It is part of the Popular Education movement. Today, the association is one of the major actors of the EEDD (Education to the Environment and Sustainable Development) in the Île-de-France area.
Through games and exchanges, let’s learn and come up with solutions together!
MAG JEUNES LGBT+
An association created by and for LGBT+ youth from age 15 to 30, which fights for their personal development by setting up weekly meetings, convivial activities and interventions in schools in order to fight against LGBTphobia.
Come and discover the diversity of LGBT+ orientations and identities through their fun activities! Discover the meaning of flags, guess which celebrities are LGBT+, test your knowledge on STIs, explore LGBT+ rights in the world via their map and play “check your privileges” to address the notion of rights and discrimination in France.
Prevention, awareness and fun!
SOLIDARY HACKATHON – LISAA x SECOURS POPULAIRE
This project is based on a collection of clothing from Secours Populaire de Paris and merchandising from previous editions of Rock en Seine, re-imagined by the school LISAA Mode Paris.
Students from LISAA Mode Paris, accompanied by volunteers from the Secours Populaire, customized these pieces during a hackathon-sewing organized on March 25 and 26, to make unique accessories: bananas, bobs, etc. All the pieces will then be sold during Rock en Seine, at the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud. All the proceeds will be donated to the Secours Populaire pool clothing, which welcomes more than 2,700 families and households in Paris every year to enable them to dress with dignity.
