The Head of State agreed to answer questions from the young journalist and YouTuber Hugo Décrypte this Monday, September 4, 2023.
The start of the school year clearly inspires the President of the Republic, who likes to address young people, at the beginning of September, in a less formal and hieratic way than usual. After video posts on Tik Tok and other social networks requested by teenagers, Emmanuel Macron decided this year to address the youngest via Youtube and one of the stars of the network: Hugo Décrypte. The young man, who has developed a news channel on the video platform followed by more than a million subscribers, said he would question the Head of State this Monday, September 4 from 6 p.m., in direct.
Emmanuel Macron, who likes to control the timing of his media interventions, holds with this interview the means to also take care of his communication with high school and university students. But the exercise is not so easy, the topics covered could lead him to abandon the language of wood. “While the government has multiplied announcements on education, the economic situation and the professional integration of young people are increasingly difficult and one in five young people suffers from depressive disorders according to Public Health France, the President of the Republic will face Hugo Travers for more than an hour to provide answers on the subjects that make up the daily life of young people in France", thus specified a press release from the young journalist.
Emmanuel Macron could well, over the course of the interview, approach the exchanges in a rather relaxed manner, as he regularly does when the discussions with his interlocutors drag on. And it is in these moments that the Head of State can change register and let go of a few small sentences, witticisms, or even communication blunders. What then feed the comments for days.
According to information from Le Parisien, the Head of State still wants to keep the reins: he is going to shoot this interview in the premises of "We Are", a space rented to the "creative and cultural industries", which has the immense advantage of being located close to the Élysée.
