The following video explains how each discussion session will be conducted based on the topics you have selected.


On August 20, last day of Le Grand parle-ouère, participate in an open forum and answer the following question “For me, the future of Acadie is determined by…”. This is a unique opportunity to be at the helm. In an entirely open setting, don’t miss this chance to discuss what’s most important to you! This original concept allows anyone to suggest a group discussion that will call upon collective knowledge and that will leave lots of space for participants’ priorities and creativity. Professionals will be on site to guide you, but it’s your voice that matters!

Take over the premises at Université de Moncton to discuss Acadie-related themes.


Le Grand parle-ouère: the CMA 2019's people's forum is organized in partnership with Université de Moncton, the collective L'état de l'Acadie, the Société Nationale de l'Acadie and the Fédération des étudiantes et des étudiants du Campus universitaire de Moncton.
