ACTIVIST - The movie
From Belgium to Slovenia, from civil disobedience to the European Parliament, citizens are committed to environmental justice.
ACTIVIST is a documentary series that follows the journey of 7 young people from the team Seeding for Future. Slovenia, Italy, Poland, Germany, Belgium: during 2 months, they met activists and initiatives committed to climate and social justice in Europe. From these discussions is born a 5-episode documentary series, illustrating the diversity of ideas, strategies and possible commitments, in order to create a fairer and more environmentally friendly world.
From civil disobedience to the European Parliament, these activists are shaping new ways of coexisting. A dose of inspiration to join this movement of commitment that brings people together beyond borders.

Diversity and complementary of actions
How to deal with the eco-social crisis? ACTIVIST shows us the importance of the diversity and the complementarity of strategies in resistance, transformation and the creation of the world of tomorrow.
Joy and care in activism
Eco-terrorists or eco-saviors? By demystifying forms of activism often misportrayed by the media, this film enlightens us on the importance of joy and care in committed collectives.
Inspire and empower
Activism, a utopia? Through creative and accessible actions, ACTIVIST inspires us to use our responsibilities and our diverse skills in the service of the environmental movement. No need for something extraordinary, you can take action from where you are!
You want to screen Activist?
Our ambition is to show as many people as possible, in France and abroad, that there are countless ways of getting involved for the planet and being an activist, in your personal way! Are you interested? Then organise your screening!
