As an activist blogger who fights all forms of social injustice and poverty, active in the fight against climate change, I don`t hesitate to say out loud what others think in silence.

Pakysse is my nickname (Type in Google and you will find my name) and my passion for citizen engagement started in the 90s when I was only a teenager eager for adventure within the Antilin’i Madagasikara (Catholic scouting) for many years.

I would like to pay tribute to my paternal grandparents for their experience, courage and self-sacrifice which, for the little story have always contribute to social transformation. My grandmother was one of the secretary of state in charge of the promotion of women during the Tsiranana`s regime. As for my grandfather, although he was trained as a civil administrator, he worked in trade union for the welfare and rights of workers as the Secretary General of the Confederation of Workers of Madagascar and the Comoros (union entity of the 50s and 60s). Their story has allowed me to develop my passion and desire to know myself and why I must help others.

In 2007, thanks to an open opportunity I was able to put in place the first and only association of citizen journalists (Blogging) in the country: FOKO MADAGASCAR, which is a full member of GlobalVoicesOnline bringing together bloggers, translators and journalists who follow and cover the news of the global blogosphere. This is mainly to promote the smooth running of democracy and freedom of expression, using new technology as a weapon of war.

During the popularization of this new mode of communication in Madagascar, opportunities came up again and again and I had the chance to attend the summit on climate change in New York at the United Nations headquarters and at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh with « Oxfam’s voices blogger » in 2009. In 2010, my international activist network reached out to me asking if I wanted to be one of the few contributors (blogger) for The Guardian newspaper in England tackling on climate change issues. In 2012, I went to Canada where I was able to attend the CIVICUS World Assembly in Montreal. In 2015, still in Canada, I followed the Canadian federal election closely and had the opportunity to participate in the activism walk with political activist bloggers. Recently, in March, I was in Ghana to report on the project implementation of the mechanism of emission reduction from deforestation and forest degradation as well as to support my African activists fellows within a strong Pan African climate and environmnetal justice network of civil societies that organized a march against global warming and climate change during the UNFCCC’s Climate Week in Accra ( on a side note, this was my very first experience on the African continent).

Beyond networking and activism at international level. We do not forget that in Madagascar, I organized the first flash mob protesting against practice of dirty politics, initially the mobilization started through sensitization and awareness raising on Facebook, I worked a lot with volunteers from various organizations and Peace Corps volunteers, United Nations Information Center, the US Embassy Press Center, UNICEF with the T4D-M4D Project, the UN Club (CPO), geeks, journalism schools like the ESSVA of Antsirabe thanks to you Randy or that of Mahanjanga which, unfortunately, does not exist anymore according to what some people said.

I organized a lot of training and conferences on blogging for business executives, students, entrepreneurs, organizations, NGOs, traditional journalists, military, etc.

From North to South and from East to West, hundred of people have benefited from this knowledge of 2.0 through the use of blogs and social networks.

This year, the calendar remains busy because we have a lot in the plate such as to organize a climate event called ConnecClimate, to facilitate training and capacity building on leadership, lead sharing and exchange sessions in Malagasy about the positive and negative impacts of social networks.
