Ophelie is 25 years old, she lives in the North of France and comes from a working-class family.
Her story is beautiful and in The Week, she will speak among other things about how she onboarded her whole family on her ecological journey.
Ophelie is a great role model when it comes to mobilizing people to make changes in their most immediate circle.
Pauline is 28 years old, she lives in France and works in a large company. She has decided not to leave the corporate world, but instead to make things change regarding the climate crises by mobilizing her colleagues within the company, who otherwise would feel lonely or powerless.

Yancy is a veteran of the Armed Forces. He began working for the fossil fuel industry over a decade ago in the transportation sector of Crude Oil.
As a young man remembering the Exxon Valdez spill, he became aware and convinced by virtue of other unnatural disasters in recent history, that climate change is a serious threat to humanity.
Yancy decided to resign from his job in the oilfield, and began working for an electric car company as a test driver. He has found great joy in collaborating as well as working with other human beings to create technology to bring about a cleaner, more efficient world.
Yancy is in his late 40's, happily married and an empty nester who loves spending time with his grandchild.
He is a very genuine and heartfelt person and we can't wait for you to meet him!
This summer, David, our director, and his team filmed John and Holly. Let's introduce them briefly...
After witnessing John's father embrace industrialized agriculture practices after 8 generations of family farming, John and Holly have chosen to go back to raising animals as their ancestors did, on green grass, without growth stimulants, antibiotics, and GMOs.
Frank is the second person we filmed in the US this summer. Frank grew up between a superfund site and an oil refinery. Seeing the effects of the pollution take out community members – including his own family – he is now on a mission to educate South Memphis residents to make the connection between environmental pollution and community health in order to empower them to fight back.
This is Frank on the set :-)
In The Week, Ashley will talk about how the climate crisis is affecting our health. This is her on the set!
