The MFRs of the Bourgogne Franche Comté, Réunion, Mayotte, Normandy, New Aquitaine, Provence, AURA… region are involved as well as the Breza associations in Croatia and the NAPOCA GAL in Romania with the rural youth parliament
Le CNAJEP, Batik Internationalnal et Budding voters are partners of this festival, the content of which contributes to the PROVOX campaign “Participation, Emancipation, Transformation”.
