The domains of journalism and education join together to reach more people. Gośka and Hervé - complementary skills
Gośka will be in charge of the media and audio-visual aspects of the project.
Having written her journalism thesis on an oil pipeline threatening Siberia’s lake Baikal and the potential of eco-tourism to provide an alternative development route for the region, Goska is experienced in communicating the complexities of sustainable development in Asia.
Her professional experience, numerous contacts in the media and familiarity with the internet will all be invaluable when it comes to getting our message across to the public.
Her contributions will include:
Realisation of the develotour.fr website
Interviews with local people involved in aspects of sustainable development
Writing a blog for the Develotour website Her long-running interest in the visual arts will also enable Gośka to bring an aesthetic vision to the project through
digital photography to illustrate the articles, and eventually also slide-shows to accompany presentations on our return
turning digital film sequences
Hervé will take care of the technical and educational aspects of the project.
With a PhD in glaciology that included field trips taking him to an altitude of 6340m in the Bolivian Andes, Hervé has considerable experience of organising long expeditions in extreme weather conditions. Climate change has been an important theme of Hervé’s work for some time, as during his PhD he studied an Andean ice core to reconstitute past climatic and environmental changes.
He is also the ideal person for:
choosing the material and physical preparation
planning the itinerary In his work as a college teacher, Herve gives classes on subjects such as the fragility of the environment, the causes and consequences of climatic changes and the solutions proposed by sustainable development. This provides him with the ideal background to:
