Presented to more than two million viewers, On the Way to School received the “Cesar Award for Best Documentary” in 2014 and was screened the same year at the United Nations Headquarters. He mentions the inequality of access to education for the world’s children and the fierce will of these adolescents who are ready to do anything to gain access to knowledge.

The students, who had all previously viewed the film with their teachers, were able to ask Pascal Plisson questions and realize that the school is not for everyone and that much more needs to be done to achieve objective of an education for all the children of the world.

This day dedicated to the 2018 edition of the International Day of the Rights of the Child ended with a public lecture by Mr. Plisson at the Technical and Hotel School of Monaco, which was attended by Isabelle Bonnal, Director of National Education, Youth and Sports, HRH the Princess of Hanover and many representatives of the institutions of the Principality including Stéphane Valeri, President of the National Council, and Patrice Cellario, Government Counselor – Minister of Education Interior.

At the end of this conference, a check of 10,000 euros was presented by the Directorate of National Education, Youth and Sports to HRH the Princess of Hanover as President of the World Association of Friends of Childhood (AMADE), in support of the essential actions of ground that this association leads for many years.
