Action Citoyenne (more generally called Axit) is one of the oldest collective projects of the campus. It is also an association. Concretely, Axit represents different initiatives with a solidary goal. Axit is actively involved during the whole year on the campus and works in cooperation with local actors. The project is divided into diverse under-projects which are autonomous.
Let's have a look at them to have an idea of their diversity:
- Axit AFEV: Thanks to a partnership with the AFEV (in French) association, students can take care of children or young people with difficult backgrounds. We take care of them individually once a week during the year, and we help them with their homework or accompany them to cultural manifestations. We also meet with other students to be formed or just to exchange about our experiences.
- Axit Ecologie: It is THE ecological project of the campus. By informing (film projections, Posters, articles in the student newspapers…) and by organizing more concrete actions (sell of recyclable glass for the coffee machine, selective sorting at the BDE Parties, sell of recycled paper…) we would like to encourage our fellow students to adopt a greener behaviour.
- Axit Europe: We have a partnership with Nancy, and so we present the European Union in the primary schools. During "Europe's month", we organize working groups for primary school classes. More generally, we take part in events about the EU on the campus, especially for May 9th or the European elections.
- Axit Gender Equality: This project promotes gender equality. We organize breakfasts or tea times to which we invite women who work in a so-called manly field to benefit from their experiences. We also organize film projections that are concluded by discussions to inform the other students. We have the project to intervene in Nancy's primary schools by making presentations to fight against sexist stereotypes.
Otherwise we organize blood collects during the whole year, an evening against AIDS, a food collect, a collect of plastic deckles to finance material for disabled people, conferences about society themes… So you will have understood that Axit is not only a solidary project, but it is also an exciting project that evolves every year: thus, we are waiting for you and your new solidary ideas!
