The environmental candidate Yannick Jadot was in Rennes on Tuesday for an outdoor meeting at midday in a town square.
A way of speaking to the undecided, not only to the convinced and especially to young people.
With his outdoor meetings,
targets the undecided and young people.
The entrance to the university is a few meters from the stage set up outside in a square in Rennes.
Elina and Camille, two students, take advantage of their lunch break to listen to the green candidate: “
Either we had lunch at the university restaurant, or we were there so as long as we could, we might as well attend the meeting.
It's a good way to attract those who are not necessarily decided or who have not followed the news.
Encourage young voters to vote for environmentalists
On stage, Yannick Jadot says he wants to offer an "
" future to young people: "
To those who want to send the French back to a rewritten, mythologized past, we will tell them throughout this campaign that we are thirsty for a benevolent future. , that we thirst for a future of solidarity, that we thirst for a future where we respect nature, where we respect every woman, every man and where we respect animals.
This is the project of ecology.
In Rennes, a little improvised walkabout ensues in the square.
Yannick Jadot is satisfied, but he knows that he must take up a major challenge: to get young people who are increasingly aware of climate issues to vote for ecologists.
This is still far from being the case in the voting intentions of 18-25 year olds.
