Population and Environmental Activist
Florence Blondel is an impassioned advocate for global social justice and a healthy planet. She’s a former Campaigns & Projects Officer at Population Matters, a UK based charity working globally to achieve a sustainable future for people and planet. She undertook a Masters in Science in Population & Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science, working as an investigative environmental, science and health reporter for Ugandan TV prior to that – with a keen interest in girls and women’s empowerment. She’s also a digital storyteller who incorporates her skills in her campaigning work. Florence was born & raised in Uganda. In the interim, she is settling into the U.S.A where she just moved in September from the UK and hosts a live online show with friends on weekends which dedicates Saturdays to sexual and reproductive health issues – discussing the taboo topics holding most Ugandan women back. Passionate about menstruation matters, she’s also building a project – FlowReady – that aims to reach young girls before they start menstruating.
