Calls for partners
Giving impetus to young people by promoting equal opportunity is a priority. Total’s commitment in this area is driven by the belief that young people are both the future of their regions and the key to their vitality.
To support nonprofit organizations working to help the most vulnerable members of society, we have set up a platform that they can use each year to present their projects.
By pooling resources and harnessing the energy of the entire community, we can bring effective, concrete solutions to problems in society.
