What Sylvie finds most interesting is being able to see local practices and uses in action. Understanding how more inclusive and more desirable public projects, better suited to people’s needs, are being put in place. She had an epiphany in the 1990s after reading “Energy and Equity” by Ivan Illich and decided to concentrate her economics studies on environmental/energy questions.
Sylvie joined Energy Cities in 2001. She holds a master’s degree in economics and energy politics from the Paris X University and has an urban environment advisor diploma from the Paris La Villette Architecture School.
