CLEAR : ChiLdren Environment AwaReness in the BMP basin
Résumé
Understanding how environmental perceptions and representations change is a necessary condition for studying man-milieus interactions. This change may influence for good or evil the governance of the geographical spaces, the management of natural resources, and the management of biodiversity and ecosystems. Studies have found that the manifestation of "environmentally sensitive" attitudes among young people had implications for their adult behavior. Other studies have shown that children are able to communicate about environmental issues and their capacity to identify environmental pressures through drawings. Considering children as social actors, a survey relative to the environment based on drawings and questionnaires was performed (2012) upon the children of the primary schools of the former coal mining area of Provence (17 towns, 27 schools). This proposal aims to support the scientific and public valorization of this study by :

- collecting additional data (for additional analyses and publications)
- supporting scientific publication (including figures, maps and illustrative drawings which requires financial participation)
- initiating a book written in a way that is accessible to a wide audience
- conceptualizing an exhibition for a broad audience (schools, events, …)

Doctorante à l’IMBE et au CERGAM, Nathalie BOUTIN a conduit l’étude sur les enfants dans le cadre de son Master en écologie, sous la direction de Sophie GACHET (IMBE). Ses travaux de these sont encadrés par Solange Hernandez (CERGAM) et co encadrés par Sophie Gachet (IMBE) et Pierre Batteau (CERGAM).

Nathalie BOUTIN performed the study on children as part of her Master in Ecology (2012), under the direction of Sophie GACHET (IMBE). She is conducting a doctoral research (Phd student CERGAM/IMBE) to be defended in 2017 and funded by full scholarship from the Labex OTMED (Laboratoire d’Excellence: Objectif Terre-Méditerranée), an interdisciplinary project of the Aix-Marseille University (AMU) focusing on the Mediterranean area issues such as climate change, human activity, and economic development. Her thesis work is supervised by Solange Hernandez (CERGAM) and co-supervised by Sophie Gachet (IMBE) and Pierre Batteau (CERGAM). She teaches (ATER) environmental management and public management at the IMPGT (Institute of Public Management and Territorial Governance of Aix-Marseille University). Her interests bear on biodiversity management, public management, corporate social responsibility, governance, man environment interactions, and ecosystems services.
