Frédérique Bedos

Journalist and founder of the NGO of Information, “Le Projet Imagine”

For 15 years, Frédérique was a journalist and speaker on TV and radio, in France and worldwide, in the prestigious prime time slots. In 2010, she decided to use the power of the media to create a vast movement of civic engagement and made films that focused on “journalism with hope” as an editorial line. She tells this story in her autobiography: “The Little girl on the Swing”.

In 2017, as an activist for peace, Frédérique received a Knighthood of the National Order of Merit. She is also a member of the Scientific and Strategic Council of the Normandy World Forum for Peace and, since January 2018, patron of the organization Bleuet de France. Last September, the Catholic University of the city of Lille has awarded Frédérique with the title of Doctor Honoris Causa.
