Isabelle Delannoy, is a French environmentalist, born in 1972 in Calais, co-scripwriter of Home,[1] directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

An agricultural engineer by education, Isabelle Delannoy is today a sustainable development specialist.


After working in research, regulation and lobbying for organic agriculture, she moved into the field of raising public awareness of environmental issues.

She joined the agency of Yann Arthus-Bertrand and collaborated on his book assessing the state of the planet La Terre Vue du Ciel (Earth from above) which became a world-wide success.

Since then, Isabelle Delannoy has become a writer for a wide range of media: publishing, internet, cinema, television. Her expertise in the domain of sustainable development is at the origin of the first observation of the carbon footprint of the French people via her consultancy Green Inside.

In 2009, she co-wrote the film Home, directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Broadcast internationally for the first time on 5 June 2009, Home summarizes the condition of the planet at the dawn of the 3rd millennium, and increases awareness of the intimate connection between human beings and the Earth.

Since January 2010, Isabelle Delannoy is a commentator on the programme Comment ça va bien ! (It’s going well!) broadcast on the 2nd TV channel in France France 2, where she talks about her environmentally-aware way of life. She has been writing the blog since 2005 and participates in the collective blog, founded by Anne-Sophie Novel.
