A freelance journalist since 2011, Benoît Cros started his carreer in South East Asia where he reported on political and social issues for French and Spanish media. He then was one of the founders of Periodisme Plural Foundation, a non-profit organisation supporting independent journalism in Barcelona that edits online media such as Catalunyaplural.cat and El Diari de l'Educació. He has recently changed his focus on Africa, where he's interested in the continent's own way to green revolution.
