Jeunesses !

It is said that the urban-rural divide is widening. What do rural villages in French-speaking Switzerland look like today? To better capture the mood in the countryside, we met with those who are the driving force and social cement there: the youth associations. In four episodes, we delve into their world.

How do rural youth position themselves in this changing world? How do the latest social issues resonate with those who don’t live in the city? What do young people in the villages want for their future and that of their region?

By choosing four youth associations in four sufficiently different villages in the Canton of Vaud (Chavornay, Grandvaux, Corcelles-près-Payerne and Les Moulins-Château d’Oex), we were able to capture the various realities and challenges facing today’s rural world. The wide diversity of activities and events that fill a year of these youth associations allowed us to build strong stories punctuated by twists and turns, suspense, and humor, against a backdrop of an almost existential question: who are these people who claim to be from the countryside, and what are their aspirations today?
