The Manifesto
Ticket for change

" What do you do for a living?"

A 70-page manifesto, read in an hour, that has the power to influence a lifetime. A plea to respond to the widespread search for meaning and to trigger a change of heart. 

We share concrete ways and many examples of how to turn your professional life into a career with impact, whatever your age, background or profession.

Following the success of the book "Activate your talents, they can change the world", we wanted to share Ticket for Change's vision in a short and accessible format.

70 pages that have the power to influence a lifetime

The urgency to act

Ecological and social emergencies: the decade 2020 must be the decade of action to invent a new model of society. Everyone has a role to play!

The lever of work

We work an average of 80,000 hours in our lives. It is urgent to ask ourselves whether our work is part of the problem or part of the solution.

Changing the system

To change things on a large scale and in depth, the whole of education, guidance and the world of employment must be reinvented. And that's good news, because we have some ideas for action.


There are 3 main strategies for engaging in a career with impact: transforming your job, finding a new job, creating your job. And you, what will be your path?

participate in the movement

Our dream is that the manifesto will be widely distributed in schools and companies, available in train stations, libraries, third places... and that it will help to change mentalities!

We have designed tools so that everyone can become an ambassador and contribute to the dissemination of this new concept of work.

the co-authors

Joséphine Bouchez and Matthieu Dardaillon are co-founders of Ticket for Change.

This is an important step for us because, after 7 years of action, we have sought to formalise the vision of Ticket for Change in a short format that is accessible to all. We hope that this manifesto can be widely distributed, particularly in companies and schools, to really enable a large-scale transition!
