La plateforme and Co  is a youth apostolate activity launched during the school year 2013-2014 in Paris by the French Jesuits and aims to integrate different Jesuit youth ministry initiatives in Paris and also to promote new ones.

Twenty young people then gathered and asked themselves “What do we do now?” “Quid agendum?” wondered Sain Ignatius when he came back from Jerusalem. This gathering led to the design of an interesting and intensive full-year program of formation called Ecology and Hope by Gaël Giraud, SJ, an economist and senior researcher at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS in French), Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne, University of Paris, and the Paris School of Economics.
