Youth, France and the World Expo

You, the young people of the world, will be the most impacted by the 2025 World Expo. You will be the protagonists of this event, and France wants you to be an integral part of its candidature. In fact, you have already been at the heart of the project since 2013: as many as a thousand university students have worked with us side by side. And it’s been a success! Now we want to keep the momentum going and give you a chance to promote our candidature internationally.
How will our top ambassadors be chosen? Through the 20'25 YOUTH CHALLENGE! This unprecedented competition is open to adults aged 20 to 25 from all backgrounds and, most importantly, from all over the world. You can join us in making this important candidature a success. The contest winners will be invited to Paris for five days to attend a Youth Convention in Paris and will go home as the official Ambassadors of the French candidature. What a challenge!

The competition, step by step

The 20'25 Youth Challenge will be held in three stages to select the most motivated ambassadors. You will have to give it your all right from the start! But no worries, it’s quite simple. Just show your attachment to France by posting a picture or a short video. Then share your post on social media to win as many votes as possible before May, 9th. The 400 candidates with the most votes will go on to the second phase. It’s easy, don’t you think?

The 400 shortlisted candidates will then be asked to reveal a little more about themselves. We want to hear about your personal motivation, your ambitions as an ambassador and how you can contribute to this candidature. You have one minute to convince us by video. A jury of professionals will then select the 100 finalists. If you are chosen to become an ambassador, congratulations! We’ll see you in Paris for the final phase.
Once you have been selected as an ambassador, your mission will be to represent France in your country. But you won’t be alone! You will be invited to a 5 days-long seminar in Paris, and with the many prestigious visits planned, the Youth Convention and the evening reception, there won’t be a dull moment! You will also write your own mission statement, which you will take home with you. Then it will be time for you to promote France’s candidature, not just in your immediate circle but to the young people and the public authorities in your country as well. Of course, we will be available to provide support as needed. You have our full confidence, and we are sure you will do a great job!
