David Djaïz is one of the signatories of an op-ed published in Le Point on 28 January 2021 entitled Pour une république écologique (For an ecological republic), an excerpt of which reads: “We call for a new ecological Republic with citizenship at its heart instead of the constricted figure of the consumer. A Republic of equals where each person must be able to participate in the creation of the common good and in the promotion of ecological reconstruction.”

He is also a member of the Collectif des 40 which authored the Manifeste pour une échelle humaine (Manifesto for a human scale). This manifesto drawn up by 40 figures of civil society – business leaders, NGO heads, top civil servants, intellectuals and public office holders – offers another French path for the decade ahead: that of an ecological and altruistic Republic, on a new human scale.
