On the afternoon of 4 August 2020, two explosions occurred at the port of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. The catastrophe caused over 170 deaths, 6,000 injuries, between 10 and 15 billion dollars of property damage, and left 300,000 people homeless. Under the guidance of Campus Director Yasmina Touaibia, Lebanese students from Sciences Po’s Menton campus, both on the ground in Lebanon and in France, immediately began to think of how they could help.

At the beginning of March 2020, while much of France was still living relatively undisturbed, Tommaso Campomagnani, Nolwenn Menard, Joseph Moussa and Mathilde de Solages, first-year students on the Menton campus, anticipated the possibility of a lockdown. In this small town on the French riviera where a third of the population is over sixty, they created Menton Livraison, a service allowing volunteers to deliver essential products to at-risk individuals.

Today, more than 50 percent of the world’s population lives in cities. Reason enough for the student association Sciences Po Environment to make urban agriculture one of its main focuses.
In January 2017, the Reims campus branch of Sciences Po Environment launched Sciences Potager, a project to plant and maintain a vegetable garden on campus. To help them get started, they sought the expertise of L’Ecole des Jardiniers, a local association that promotes organic agriculture.

In March, four student associations on the Reims campus; Politiqu’elles, HeForShe, SAGA, and The Feminist Society joined forces to celebrate Gender Equality Week. The objective was to bring students together to address gender equality issues such as women in politics and business; to revisit feminism and notions of masculinity; and to reflect upon fundamental questions about sexuality.
