Originally from Dakar, Sokhna Ramatoulaye Cisse is a student in Master 2 Political Science – International Studies with Diplomacy and International Relations at the Gaston Berger University of Saint Louis. She holds a baccalaureate series L2 at the Maison d’Education Mariama Bâ in Gorée. Passionate about the environment and specialized in diplomacy, her master’s study and research work focused on climate diplomacy and the challenges of international climate negotiations in the countries of the South, particularly African countries. Furthermore, Ramatoulaye is very interested in the role and place of non-state actors in the management and protection of the environment. In this dynamic, she is a fervent campaigner for climate change mitigation and adaptation as an environmental activist and green climate ambassador in Africa on behalf of the pan-African organization Climate Change Africa Opportunities. In this regard, she participates in the promotion of female leadership in global environmental management. As an active citizen, she is involved in various associative movements or organizations including the Junior Chamber International, SheDecides/Senegal, Eco-tri/Senegal, CampClimat/Senegal, SenegalPropre, Découverte Solidaire, but always oriented towards green initiatives and by being active in the concrete actions carried out for the climate and the environment. Passionate about actions in the field, Ramatoulaye has always known how to engage with the communities with whom she likes to work, certainly, to serve but also, to better discover her country, to know more about her culture, and to learn better about the realities of her country. And her continent. The alliance between scientific research and field activities strengthens its ecological awareness and is fully active through concrete actions to meet the major challenges around environmental and climate issues. She is one of those people who strongly believe in African youth and their power of action, their ability to create change, and their ability to lay the foundations for sustainable development in Africa. For her, this cannot be achieved without communities, which must be the very center of development. This vision motivated her to seize the opportunity offered by CorpsAfrica/Senegal, which offers her an ideal framework to not only convey this idea but to take actions that can inspire other young people and above all strengthen the momentum of sustainable community development. Being a CorpsAfrica Volunteer is an excellent opportunity for her to strengthen her commitment, to her capacities and participate in the development of her country.
