After studying at the École d’art dramatique Jean-Périmony and a brief career as an actor, Cyril Dion coordinated projects for the Fondation Hommes de Parole, which seeks to deepen knowledge of and solve problems at the intersection of religion and global affairs through research and teaching, notably with the Israeli-Palestinian congress at Caux in 2003, 2005 and 2006, and the first and second world Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace in Brussels and Seville. In 2007 he founded the ecological movement Colibris (hummingbird in French) with French writer, farmer and environmentalist Pierre Rabhi, where he was director until July 2013 and is now the spokesperson and member of the steering committee. In collaboration with French actress Mélanie Laurent, he wrote and co-produced the documentary Tomorrow, which won the Cesar Award for Best Documentary in 2016. He was actively involved in L’affaire du Siècle campaign and the March for the Climate in France.
