JIP 044: Marion Chaygneaud-Dupuy

Marion Chaygneaud-Dupuy: cleaning Mount Everest

Marion was born in France, but in a sense, her heart & soul belongs to Tibet.

At 16 years old she went to India. This trip totally changed her life & she decided to go back a couple of years later to join a Buddhist monastery where she spent 4 years studying meditation.

After this life-changing experience, she became a guide in the Himalayas and even became the first European woman to successfully climb Mount Everest 3 times! There she decided to make an impact and she started the Clean Everest project in order to clean the mountain. Tons of rubbish have been removed from the mountain thanks to this initiative that she now tries to duplicate on other mountains.

This year she released a book in French called "Respire, tu es vivante" (literally "Breath, you are alive") where she shares in detail her journey. The book will be translated into English in 2021.

Marion's connection to nature and her willingness to help others in astonishing and incredibly inspiring!
