About Sébastien

Sébastien is 31 years old and lives in Paris (France).

He joined the Solidarité Etudiante initiative in 2013 to create a cooperative focused on helping students self-organize and manage their own services on campus, rising to Chief Director. Sébastien is also involved in many projects to promote cooperation and represent young cooperators, co-founding the Young European Cooperators Network. He also became the first elected representative of young cooperators in the ICA back in 2017.
