Aliénor Rougeot

Program Manager, Climate and Energy

Aliénor’s interest for human and environmental rights started during her childhood in the South of France, where she became vocal on topics of biodiversity loss, women’s rights, refugee rights and climate change. These interests led her to the intersectional topic of climate justice, but it was only when she moved to Canada at the age of 17 that she truly understood the need for broad and collective mobilization for climate action. This led her to co-founding and coordinating Fridays for Future Toronto while completing a degree in Economics and Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Allie’s happiness comes from being with others, and in her free time she can be found exploring Toronto’s parks and cafés with friends.
