Objectives of exchange and sharing
“Shake Your Earth” is a citizen mobilization whose objective is:
- to share and transmit knowledge and knowledge with the citizens of the world, on the stakes and challenges of the implementation of sustainable development, and to encourage each citizen to become a player in the transformation of our societies in favor of a society sober in natural resources, fair and solidarity;
- to strengthen exchanges between young people, students, future professionals of sustainable development with the citizens and public and private professionals of their respective countries;
- to bring citizens together with experts, known and recognized national and international figures;
- to strengthen exchanges in order to encourage meetings, partnerships, actions and projects on common problems and concerns;
- to enable students to interact with professionals in order to assist them in their search for jobs.
The objective of this initiative is to be able to feel and understand the state of knowledge and the mobilization of the citizens of the world on a similar theme. Indeed, even if the problems remain the same regardless of the country in which we live, the responses are part of our local experiences and depending on whether we live in an industrialized, developing or transitional country, the levers of actions are substantially different. Agite Ta Terre intends to contribute to bear witness to this diversity while inviting every citizen from anywhere to mobilize according to his means. We thus hope to give each of us the desire to act as a prerequisite for any collective construction.
Imagining a different world without being resolutely a witness and actor of this change seems to us unimaginable in view of the challenges facing our societies. Agitate your Earth, it is our way of helping to transform the apparent difficulties into opportunities for collective action in search of a better living together “(Stéphane Pouffary, CEO of ENERGIES 2050).

Shake Your Earth! 2012

Genesis of the Initiative
Agite Ta Terre was initially the name of a local event organized by the GAIA association, which brings together the students of the Master Pro Environment and Sustainable Development Management at the University of Nice-Sophia-Antipolis . Every year, the new promotion of the GEDD Master organized an information day for the population of the city of Nice (located in the South of France) on the challenges of sustainable development in a perspective of local development. Despite a strong mobilization of the students, the day met a very low echo among the population.
ENERGIES 2050 observed the same difficulties encountered by other associations in mobilizing the greatest number on similar subjects. Thus was born the idea of Agite Ta Terre. Networking associations around the world around a common day to multiply the means of each and to stimulate exchanges between the citizens of the world.
ENERGIES 2050, has internationalized the concept that has become “Shake Your Earth”. GAIA has become a partner in the new initiative.
