2017:  “La mixité en chantier” - défi construction campaign – Hearing from children

In line with the slogan “Les mentalités évoluent, les chantiers aussi” (Minds are changing, and so are construction sites), this video features children taking on a construction challenge. By building a birdhouse together, Rosalie, Mathéo, Ines, and Noah show that each individual contributes a way of doing things and of thinking that enhances the work. The children’s words, free of prejudice and unscripted, are full of sensitivity and humour. They show the value of gender diversity on construction sites.
