Motivated by climate issues and planetary boundaries, Quentin decided to study land use planning at the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées. His experience in associative field at the Fresque du Climat, helped him to better understand the stakes of the ecological bifurcation. Between his native Haute-Savoie and his home town Rennes, where he gained expertise in mobility and sustainable agriculture, he is now based in Paris to deploy the Sustainable City by France’s territorial workshops throughout the country.


Originally from Savoie, Alice is currently studying a Master’s degree in Sustainable Territorial Development. After having focused her professional life in the tourism sector and the search for a way to reconcile tourism and environmental issues, she joined Sustainable City by France. This organisation, fully committed to the transformation of territories, allows her to discover more about sustainable city, in a theoretical way (working groups and scientific committee) but also in applied way, by territorial workshops.
