Nature lovers and enthusiastic adventurers, Caroline Vézina and Emanuelle Carrier have been working in social intervention for several years. The first holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in psychoeducation from Université Laval, the second completed a bachelor’s degree in psychoeducation at Université de Sherbrooke. We had the opportunity to discuss for a long time with these two exceptional people about a subject that has fascinated us since our young years as summer camp counsellors: how is it possible to put the outdoors and expeditions at the service of education and social intervention? This field of research is in great effervescence and the conversation was very enriching! Inspiration guaranteed.

Jacob Racine is a professional adventure tourism guide who graduated from Cégep St-Laurent in Montreal in the early 2000s. In addition to his outdoor career, he took part in several significant expeditions in Quebec, including the legendary Karibu Project: a complete 131-day ski crossing of Quebec from Montreal to Kuujjuaq. He was also a participant in the TV program Destination Nord-Ouest, broadcast on TVA in 2008. An outstanding speaker and storyteller, he knows how to share his experiences in a way that makes people think, inspire and make them laugh! At the time of the podcast, Jacob was about to departure for a two-month expedition to reach the geographical centre of South America from the Chilean coast to the heart of the Amazon, by bike and raft! With Jacob, we discussed in detail the highlights of his career as a guide, his main expeditions and explored a very general question: how is it to be a professional guide in Quebec? Guaranteed laughter!
