It is a time of wonder, one where the 25 young people who dream of journalism, without necessarily having the keys to enter, penetrate for the first time in the premises of the World. Student in medicine, or just a bachelor, graduate of the decorative Arts, or employee in a theatre, four-fifths of them had never received any training in the field of media. Some knew about The World ” to name “, but have never opened. Some of them proclaim triumphantly that they went up to read it. Two or three have learned that the day they have ” applied to the World Academy “.

For this third edition, The World has welcomed this year 25 young people from 18 to 25 years, with or without a degree, wishing to make their first steps in journalism. “Because of its position in the French press, The World has a particular responsibility in terms of training and promotion of young journalists, the transmission of knowledge and values. It was assumed up to now these functions through its commitments to schools of journalism. It will continue to do so. But the group has decided to go further and to mobilize in order to help young talent away from traditional channels to enter in this business “, wrote in 2012, the director of the Monde, Erik Izraelewicz, today disappeared.

After four one-week sessions spread over the year, this field experience is also a contest. On November 30, 2016, the three candidates will come away with a CDD for one year within the group. The World will award its Prize for the reportage. For their part, the two faithful partners of the transaction, EDF and Google, will be awarded to each candidate. Each award is endowed with € 3 000. The six CSD signed by the winners of the last two sessions, four were converted into permanent contracts.

The candidates for 2016 are similar to their generation : many have traveled, gone to see elsewhere, with perhaps the desire to stay there.

on The day of their arrival, in April 2016, most of them were rather shy. This is Pierre Bussiere, 22, a law student in Clermont-Ferrand, a stretcher-bearer volunteer at Lourdes and founder of the association. He was full of ideas and so much energy. In his first interview, he returned without having taken a note. “I didn’t know that he had to write everything down. “Clément Lanot, 19, BTS audiovisuel, is concerned :” I can’t find original subjects. Is this is serious ? “

The candidates for 2016 are similar to their generation : many have traveled, gone to see elsewhere, with perhaps the desire to stay there. Andy Lavedrine, a graduate of an engineering school in Paris, spent four months in Dakar on a microcredit project. Nadia-Line Faham, a bachelor’s degree in anthropology at Aix-en-Provence, crossed Argentina for eight months. However, they are also the first to tell a planet that seems to suddenly cower. A Aarhus, Denmark, for a cycle of studies in history, Myriam Piguet has seen in two years his university tense up, accepting fewer students from abroad, especially from the East. Or Sylvain Elfassy, just graduated from the School of cinema and video in Quebec : his story paints a portrait of a young Canadian renouncing the distant humanitarian missions to work in his own country. This is also one of the objectives of the World Academy : to open the columns and screens of the World with new eyes, new concerns. Trying to fit the diversity, the diversity of generational, social or cultural.

Each generation reads the world his own way. For young people biberonnés to the Internet and new technologies, the report information is very different. The desire to shake up the press passes also by the form. In the amphitheatre the boulevard Blanqui, the 25 candidates cheered as the stars of the set-top boxes came to give a talk. On his side, Arnaud Glover, 24 years old, negotiator, economic, has already created its own channel on YouTube, Stupid Economics. For the first time, in 2016, candidates were recruited in five disciplines : developer, videographer, editor, datajournaliste, graphic designer. All the works are online on the website of the
