Frédérique Bedos

An inspired founder

Producer and Film Director, Frédérique Bedos has been a journalist, Tv and Radio host, for more than 20 years, both in France and internationally.

In 2010, she created an NGO of information, called Le Projet Imagine with a powerfull motto: Inspire to Act! That NGO aims to create a movement of citizen commitment with a view to a more inclusive and sustainable society. It raises public awareness through inspiring films and involves the public in action-oriented programs that are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals as defined by the United Nations.

These programs are deployed in schools and increasingly in universities, prisons, companies and cities and prisons.

Since 2017, Le Projet Imagine is officially recognized by the United Nations.

That same year, Frédérique received the rank of Knight of the National Order of Merit.

YOU’RE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN A GREAT HUMAN ADVENTURE!

Le Projet Imagine is an Information NGO that works with the media to raise awareness about the urgent need to save not the world but rather the beauty of the world! Because, of course, the world will survive. But what kind of a state will it be in? Herein lies the real question. Our answer is to produce films that follow the same editorial line: journalism with hope! With a friendly, benevolent and constructive outlook, our films aim to make people want to do something. Because the ultimate goal is to generate a broad popular movement that wants to invent a different way of being in the world: this is the Imagine movement.
