Marie is 26 years old and has been involved in green political activism, at first within the Jeunes Ecologistes (France) since 2012.

I started my activism with ECOLOJ in 2013 as a treasurer of a local group while I was in my first year of bachelor in social and human sciences at the University of Mons.I also volunteered in several associations in Belgium which lead me to work in the field of climate change, peace & democracy, education and divestment.
My activism inspired my study choice: I am doing a Master in Environmental Management.

I started my environmental activism in Greenpeace Valencia in 2006. In 2011, when I was studying Political Science and I've decided to engage myself in political activism. Nowadays, I'm a member of Red Equo Joven which is the young green organisation of the Spanish Greens and also part of the Valencian Green Party (VerdsEquo). In 2014, I was living in Brussels and it was this moment when I started to participate in FYEG activities; since then I have decided not to quit it! The areas that I like the most are the ones related to climate change, migration and feminism. In my free time, I love to collect stamps from all over Europe!
