What first triggered your interest in environmental issues?

I live in Europe, in Paris France. All I can see around is cars, trucks, planes, gas station and car dealers everywhere. few of us trie to survive eating organical products or using buses, trains and cycles as transportation. But we are so few.

What are you working on, concerned by, or motivated by at the moment?

I work on and manage multiple art projects, about environment and ecology. Tryig to put some of those ideas in art center and galleries, expecting to get a small result on visitors

What do you anticipate working on, or thinking about, in relation to environmental issues over the next 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years?

Still, and again. developping action, artt performance and works about that.

How optimistic or pessimistic are you as you look at where we might be in 2020, and why?

Gas and Cars companies own the business. We didn't see much the politics doing anything in Copenhagen in December 09. What else?

Tell your story in your own words.

I will live in a smaller city, to raise my kids with an organic old-school garden :) Manage my projects from there and take a couple of time a month the train to meet people in big cities.
