R&D Unplugged #4 – discover our research

4 juillet 2024 | 11h00 – 12h00

Join us for R&D Unplugged #4 with Laelia Benoit


Childism – Do we really love children?

Although we like to believe that we care about children and their future, studies on climate change and children’s mental health reveal that their concerns about the planet and their actions are often undermined. We will explore how childism, the prejudice against children, is prevalent in our daily lives. Additionally, we will discuss ways to become more aware of this issue, address childism as it occurs, and collaborate with children to overcome stigma and empower them to drive change.
