How I work

My actions, both professionally and in my personal life, are always guided by my values. My top four values are Respect, Collaboration, Environmental Consciousness, and Creativity. Learning, Sharing Knowledge, and Optimism are also important in the way I live and work.

Respecting Biodiversity and Cultural Diversity

To me, respect is the foundation of all the other values.  Respecting biodiversity and respecting cultural diversity both mean being open to life. Respecting the ideas and the points of view of other people is essential for a constructive dialogue.

Facilitating Collaboration

I believe that collaboration is the key to going forward. We need to collaborate and exchange experiences with other people to understand complex issues, make a positive impact, and grow.

Promoting Environmental Consciousness

Now, more than ever, we need to understand the relationships between ourselves and the natural world around us and act responsibly. We need to help others become aware of the consequences of their choices, through education for biodiversity and sustainability.

Creating content to share actionable messages

Creativity helps us to find original ways to get a message across. From storytelling to infographics, videos, and podcasts, there are so many ways to share your message.

Being always up-to-date

I am a lifelong learner. When I don’t know, I always strive to continue learning, because new challenges are an opportunity to explore new ideas and to grow. Learning keeps us active and open to understanding the world around us, which continually changes. Because life is change

Sharing knowledge

Sharing knowledge is crucial for transforming behaviors. Together with learning, sharing knowledge is my passion. 

Knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel

Optimism is what makes us believe that we can make it, even if it will not be easy, even if there will be obstacles. As Nelson Mandela once said: “It always seems impossible, until it’s done”.
