I joined the climate movement because I simply couldn't stand by and watch how our planet and future were being destroyed. I had to act.

This incredibly amazing system we live in is destroyed everyday a little more, by our fault. It scares me, but it’s also a powerful call to action : this current crisis should inspire us to conceive the world for tomorrow. For me, it’s just unthinkable to stay still and not to participate in this crucial movement. It’s about being on the right side of history !

All the solutions to the climate crisis are already on the table, not taking action is not an option to me. The vision of a better tomorrow drives me to protect the planet for all living beings.
