Et maintenant ?

The second edition of the international festival of ideas for the future


Et maintenant?, the international festival of ideas for the future, is back! For the second edition of the festival, ARTE and France Culture have once again put together a program for all those who have questions about the society of today and tomorrow. More than a vast sociological survey, Et maintenant is also a festival and gives the opportunity to organize debates.


Launched on May 25, 2022, the questionnaire is composed of 77 questions organized around the climate of uncertainty in which we evolve. After two years marked by the covid, the war in Ukraine, and political uncertainties, in short, after all that, what kind of world do we want?

ARTE, France Culture, Yami 2 and Upian have renewed their collaboration with Monique Dagnaud, research director at the CNRS and sociologist specialized in the study of youth. This year, the questionnaire is available in French and German.


Between May and October 2022, the questionnaire will be the occasion for a vast public debate in France and Germany to sound out individual opinions and to identify together the levers we have at our disposal in the face of crises. We are convinced that the questionnaire is a formidable tool for democratic debate and that it must leave our screens to be embodied in reality.

In high schools, universities, neighborhood associations, youth centers or local missions, this field approach will provide a unique space for expression and collective questioning. In this way, we give everyone the opportunity to express themselves, to identify areas of disagreement or consensus.


The results of the survey will inspire the programming of the festival, which will take place on October 21 and 22, 2022 at La maison de la Radio et de la Musique, in educational venues and online at

At the heart of a year marked by the war in Ukraine, global warming and the continuation of the pandemic, the questionnaire is the gateway to the festival that questions the relationship of different generations to the essential crises of today and the hopes of tomorrow.

This festival will mark the end of several months of exchanges around the questionnaire and will give the floor to researchers, artists, intellectuals and journalists to shed light on the major trends revealed by the sociological survey. The major themes that underlie the spirit of this second edition will be addressed in conferences but also in projections and participatory workshops.

All you have to do is participate!
