And a solid experience

Throughout Maewan’s travels,Erwan and Marion have met inhabitants who live in harmony with nature, like in Utupua, but have also observed the impacts of humans on the planet such assailing through the ocean gyres.

Along with Marion Courtois , who has 12 years professional experience in managing humanitarian programs, together, they decide to put in place a pilot phase for the future educational and environmental  actions. From the start, Marion carried out an assessment of the situation and creates afterwards the strategy for social intervention and solidarity.
