Why did I become an activist?
My name is Colas, I’m 23 years old, and I study Master of Public Relations.
How did I get engaged for the climate?
I used to watch conferences and documentaries on the state of the world that touched me, but each time I lacked the courage and the push to take the step.
I decided to go to a demonstration on March 19, 2021 and that’s when something clicked in my head. Seeing young people as motivated as Adélaïde Charlier & Anuna De Wever, and many others in real life (after this long covid-19 period), triggered something in me… I had to do it too!

What world for tomorrow?
Summary “Quel monde pour demain?”
This book gathers the testimonies of 4 committed women: Esmeralda De Belgique, Sandrine Dixson-Declève, Anuna De Wever & Adélaïde Charlier. A dialogue between generations and a common “cry” to declare the climate emergency.
I devoured this novel in less than 48 hours, which, for a hyperactive dyslexic, is quite a feat. The courage and determination of these women will never cease to impress me.
I encourage you to read it and I hope you will have the chance to interact with them as I did.
