Étienne Poulin

Étienne Poulin holds a master’s degree in urban studies from INRS and a bachelor’s degree in sociology from UQAM. He currently teaches sociology at Cégep de Rimouski. His background in sociology and his personal interests in urban agriculture, winter biking and do-it-yourself converge towards a desire to understand the motivations behind involvement in so-called informal forms of political participation. As part of his master’s degree, he studied the social and political motivations for involvement in collective urban agriculture projects in Montreal. He also participated in the work of the Labo Climat Montréal, where he worked on a project that aims to mobilize the knowledge of community organizations in terms of support and adaptation of vulnerable populations to extreme heat.
