Sociologist and urban planner
Célia joined Une Autre Ville in 2021, after a master's degree in Urban Policy and Territorial Governance at Paris-Dauphine University. As an urban planner and sociologist, her work has led her, among other things, to question the room for maneuver of sustainable development AMOs to push environmental ambitions in the context of urban projects. Her background coupled with her experience at Une Autre Ville has allowed her to acquire an understanding of the specific political issues and interplay of actors of each mission. Attached to the notions of frugality and inclusion, she is committed to promoting a conception of the city synonymous with saving resources and fulfilling all its users.Explore CV
