Journaliste de formation, Caroline s’intéresse aux questions de développement durable depuis des années, sur le plan personnel et professionnel. Elle est convaincue qu’il est important de comprendre le monde dans lequel on vit pour pouvoir agir sur lui.
À travers articles et dossiers réalisés en France, elle s’est évertuée à donner des clés de compréhension et des moyens d’action aux lecteurs pour qu’ils puissent réduire leur impact sur la planète au quotidien. Ses sujets de prédilection ? Les villes durables, le zéro déchet, la préservation des océans.
Elle croit aux médias libres qui parlent d’écologie indépendamment de tout intérêt économique et politique. Pour cette raison, elle a animé l’espace médias alternatifs en tant que volontaire sur le village des alternatives Alternatiba à Bayonne (France) en 2018.
Caroline trouve le projet ÉcoNova formidable car l’éducation à l’environnement des plus jeunes est selon elle fondamentale. Elle devrait même être obligatoire ! Il est important d’informer les enfants sur la façon dont notre planète se transforme, évolue, leur expliquer pourquoi elle est en train de changer. Et leur permettre de faire quelque chose à leur échelle. C’est ce que les ateliers ludiques et pédagogiques ÉcoNova leur offrent.
