Labcitoyen is looking for a young Nigerian who demonstrates a commitment to human rights and freedom through associations, politics, humanitarian means, civic associations or unions.


LabCitoyen is a programme dedicated to major issues relating to human rights. In France, it calls on about 50 young committed citizens of ages 20 to 26, those who speak and are learning the French language, to receive training on such issues through a series of lectures and discussions.

For about ten days, participants from five continents will come together to give thought to major themes for an exchange of ideas at the international level. On topics such as digital stakes, discrimination, environmental conservation and healthcare rights, LabCitoyen endeavours to deal with the major issues of our time while promoting the French language as a tool for both discussion and action.


The LabCitoyen 2018 project is about Human rights and education. It is open to all young Nigerians between the ages of 20 to 26, with a minimum of B1 level in French.


The candidates must apply before the February 28th, they will have to present their projects, commitments, and motivations in front of a jury at the Institut français du Nigeria.
