“Humanity faces several challenges & crisis as it did since ever. But one of them has become global and a top priority for everyone a bit sensible and reasonable on earth : the climate crisis. It hurts already and will hurt even stronger in a near future if we do not change the paradigms and dynamics of our society, in particular along the food supply chain and the farming sector. As a lawyer, and after many years of practice at EU level, I couldn’t find a better place than within the ClientEarth teams to participate to this tremendous challenge by trying to amend the relevant legal framework wherever possible and by securing its efficient enforcement”
