A geographer by training, Christiane helped build the Energy Cities network. Since then she has coordinated many European projects on a variety of issues relating to energy and climate policies.
Today her focus is on territories engaged in far-reaching transformations experimenting new, more cooperative modes of governance in response to the democratic and ecological challenges.
Christiane wants to give visibility to and help disseminate these emerging initiatives, understand the relationship between social innovation and the local dynamics of the territories, and get involved in projects and experiments that are real game-changers.
In her spare time, she is a volunteer for Habitat et Humanisme, an NGO working to provide housing and ensure the social integration of the most needy.
