National campaigner, LatviaEmail:
I’am a biologist by education – I’ve got a bachelor’s degree in zoology and a master’s degree in botany/ecology. My professional life has been rather diverse, but always connected to nature or environment. I’ve been a kindergarden teacher, worked as an EU protected habitat mapper, produced and made scripts for a few documentary films on nature conservation and habitat restauration, worked in projects related to food waste, Fair Trade and sustainable consumption. I’ve also been employed as a nature education and communications expert in two state institutions. I am a fan of sustainable forestry and agriculture/agroecology/agroforestry – would love to develop myself more in those areas and work towards promoting them further in my region and the EU.
