Jean Jouzel believes In the power of education and the opportunities which are opened to people who get access to education., impacting each individual’s fate, like his own.
“Being a descendent of a family of farmers since generations, I thoroughly enjoyed the education that was given to me from primary school to university and later on towards a PhD, who in turn opened up upon an exciting research career. My life is filled by these years of hard studies but they were also very happy. I wish that all young people could benefit from the same huge opportunities that I got, however, I know that many will not get it without a boost and adaptive aids. The actions conducted by the Nobel Academy in the field of higher education are likely to motivate young people and allow them to move forward”.
