Planète Urgence is surrounded by a committee of experts

experts Planète Urgence

Planète Urgence wished to be surrounded by experts from multiple organizations and fields influencing international solidarity and the environment. These experts work on a voluntary basis to help the association make informed strategic choices. 

In this context, the management of the association brings together an advisory committee every six months to gather opinions and advice on the development of the association and the quality of its intervention. The first committee was held in February 2021 around the president of the association Patrice Papet. It brings together members representing institutions, the world of education and business, as well as thematic experts on the climate, international solidarity or volunteering.

  • Agnès Guiral (Deputy CSR Director of Natixis)

Some feedback from experts following the first Orientation Committee in February 2021 


Thank you very much for inviting me to this Committee, for your warm welcome and your professionalism. I really enjoyed this meeting, it was interesting and efficient. Congratulations for the organization because despite the remote format, the meeting was dynamic, the information concrete, the exchanges very interesting and all this while respecting the timing! 

The facilitation techniques proposed were adequate: a plenary session, then a question and answer session during which each person was able to speak. 

If I had to add one wish: it would be to have an exchange with one or more people in the field on a future occasion. But everything obviously depends on the subject to be treated, the relevance of bringing in someone from the field, the internet connection and the time zone! 

Thibaut MARY, Head of the entrepreneurship and integration division at Entrepreneurs du Monde 



Bravo for this very well prepared first committee! Clear objectives and very effective and dynamic animation. 

Frédéric BAILLY, Member of the SOS Group Executive Board – Member of the Board of Planète Urgence 



Very interesting committee, with complementary profiles gathered. Bravo for having launched this exercise, which can be very useful for receiving opinions from the outside with targeted experiences on the various issues. 

Romain Le Chéquer, Director of the Pierre Bellon Foundation 



Interesting exercise in the diagnostic method and in substance! 

Anne-Charlotte Dommartin, Delegate for Relations with Civil Society and Partnerships at the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs 



Very good rhythm of the committee, the “Workshops” session is very interesting. Bravo for this first successful committee.
