THE IMAGINE OBSERVATORY

PURPOSE

The mission of the Imagine Project is a subtle one, namely to design innovative tools that are participatory, interactive and inclusive, with the aim of fostering the emergence of a culture of respect, mutual aid, solidarity, and otherness… In a word: a culture of peace. 

What Le Projet Imagine is in fact doing is waging a cultural battle on a daily basis, addressing everyone.

Impacts are diverse in nature and spread out over time, in the short, medium and long term. Ultimately, the aim is to pacify the atmosphere in our society and prevent the aspects which, in the long run, could rip apart both our social fabric and our spirit of social cohesion.

In order to be able to fully appreciate the effects of our actions, on a qualitative basis, we deemed it necessary to set up a dedicated observatory, to include of a number of qualified well-known figures.
