How do I get involved in an ecological transition profession? What training to follow? What jobs correspond to my skills, to my aspirations? Here are so many questions to which the association Les Pépites Vertes strives to answer by listing the backgrounds and testimonies of dozens of young professionals committed to the environment.
In order to support this initiative, 20 minutes joined this summer “to the great appeal to the nuggets of France” launched by the site to find new talents throughout France. Among the very many responses received, four “profiles” were retained. Four dynamic and committed “nuggets” that Claire Pétreault (alias Claire L’Éclair) went to meet and interview this summer at their workplace.
