About Fanny-Tsilla Koninckx
Fanny-Tsilla Koninckx
Intern

I spent my childhood between the French Alps and the Danish coast. These two environments taught me to love both the mountain wilderness and the splendor of the sea, raising my concern for the preservation of their ecosystems.


This concern has led me throughout my studies. In order to work with environmental policies, I took the path of law, with a bachelor degree at the University of Toulouse, and then International Relations through a masters at Science Po Strasbourg. During my studies, I took a particular interest in the Arctic and the interweaving of political, economic and environmental issues in the region. That’s what led me first to the Arctic Institute, where I am participating through newsletters, and then to GRID-Arendal as an intern in the Polar and Climate Programme.


In the last few years I also worked with Greenpeace France, in the fundraising program. This experience gave me an understanding of the role of communication to address policy-makers and international organisations, and made me even more eager to work for the international consideration of environmental issues.


My internship at GRID-Arendal gives me the chance to work on various environmental topics like sea pollution and resilient solutions to climate change in mountains. It’s such an enriching experience to work with international experts of these subjects and to learn about international cooperation and communication.
