I created this site to share with you my journey through environmental ethics around the globe.
Exchanges and conversations are the driving force behind my research (see academic papers) and my environmental commitments, and this website aims to be a support for developing and deepening them by making my thoughts easily accessible.
Learning and thinking is a dynamic and ongoing process, so the materials I share here are work-in-progress. Without a doubt, they will change and be improved over time, thanks to your precious inputs!
I’m taking a pragmatic approach to research and apply environmental ethics globally, from philosophy to activism.
I grew up in the Jura mountains in Switzerland, where I did my first steps in environmental activism and in the world of philosophy. I came to Japan five years ago, because most of environmental ethics and international environmental laws seemed to be quite Western-centred, and I believe that to take efficient action together, we first need to understand each other better. In other words, I felt the need to reach for diverse perspectives in order not be involved in advocacy that would unintentionally support or reproduce oppressive policies and structures. Over the last years, I learnt from diverse worldviews on ethics and the environment, by following teachings of scholars and by exchanging with environmental activists, mainly in East and South-East Asia. I owe my ideas and inspiration to these countless of exchanges.
