Sandrine Rousseau has also refused the idea that “we can’t do anything anymore” for the environment, considering that it is “a way not to act”. She conceded, however, that the “transformation of our lifestyles” born “will not be easy”, especially from an economic point of view.
“We must help our carbon economy to decarbonize. We must redirect our support for the economy on a massive scale towards public services and low-carbon services, but also help employees in sectors in difficulty so that they do not suffer not this transformation “, explained the candidate, before talking about the primary environmentalist. According to her, voters are demanding a radical ecology “backed by a social transformation, a project of equality and inclusion”. “What I wear responds to a political offer that does not exist in the political landscape today”, she estimated.
