d'Erm, Pascale


After graduating from Sciences-Po, Paris’s prestigious school of Political Science, Pascale d’Erm became a journalist and filmmaker who joined the Nicolas Hulot Foundation in 1996. As a journalist, she contributed to Psychologies Magazine, Santé Magazine and Régal. She has written nearly a dozen books, including Sœurs en écologie (“Sisters in Ecology,” Editions La Mer Salée, 2017). She also wrote and directed NATURA, an investigation into the advantages of experiences in nature, and published Natura: How Nature Heals Us and Makes Us Happier (Les Liens qui Libèrent, 2019). Her latest documentary film, AQUA, focuses on her experiences with water and its role in global health. Having trained as a Forest Bathing (shinrin yoku) guide, she now leads groups with that method. She has also begun teaching eco-feminism and frequently speaks on the topic at conferences about women and the environment.
