My name is Manon Vibert, I am 22 and based in Lyon, France. Through my studies, I became well aware of the urgency of the worldwide climate crisis we are facing. My working experience as an Environment Project Manager with TotalEnergies Renewables reinforced this belief.

This year, I am finishing my engineering master's in agriculture and starting my “working” journey with TerraTerre as a Carbon Project Manager. This smooth transition is a way for me to bring the environment into agriculture. As much as I love the farming world, it is bound to change and evolve, and I am glad to be participating in that transition.
