HerstoryOfChange – Pauline’s Story

Pauline is an environmental scientist, graduated in environmental engineering and biology, with a strong antenna for international solidarity. As an environmental scientist, she was associated with research institutes in Sweden, India, Cambodia and France until she accidentally ended up at UNIVERS-SEL. She worked in the salt marshes of Guérande, in southern Brittany, as a seasonal worker to harvest fleur de sel, a slightly moist sea salt with a crystalline structure. There she got to know the organization UNIVERS-SEL and heard about their work in Guinea-Bissau. Coincidentally, a position became available. She then spent two years in Guinea-Bissau working with female salt producers.

In 2019, Pauline, along with the organization UNIVERS-SEL was the technical solution winner at the Gender Just Climate Solution Awards Ceremony, an annually recurring event at the UNFCCC Climate Summit , organized by WECF International and the Women & Gender Constituency.
