As her family name suggests, Marie-Lise was born and raised in a mountainous and harsh region: France’s Massif-Central (Auvergne). She studied agronomy and ag-economics in the south of France (Sup Agro – Montpellier). She has spent the last two decades working on territorialized public policies (environment, ecological and climate transition, youthness, solidarity, rurality, …), as project manager in local authorities, and as a trainer. Good preparation for the objectives of phase 2 of the Rural Resilience project, focusing in particular on multi-tiered rural policies.
She is based in Ile-de-France, close to Paris. This geographical location will allow her to continue networking in France, while opening the reflections and actions previously undertaken in the “Nos Campagnes en Résilience” project to another major European agricultural country, with her colleagues at ARC2020.
