Ariya joined the Green Office for the first time this year and is currently in their third year of Sociology. They’re interested in environmental marginalization but also love eco-brutalist architecture. Most excitingly, they can’t wait to work with Sara and be part of an active community!
I am a UvA student from Italy and one of this year’s two general managers at the Green Office! I am currently finishing my studies in Political Science and Sociology. My interest in sustainability comes from understanding social structures from an intersectional perspective to strive for a just and liveable world for everyone. I am very excited to lead the team with Ariya and work with the rest of the amazing coordinators, as well as driven volunteers!
Communications Team Leader
My name is Zoé and I am currently doing my Master's in Spatial Sustainability Studies. I am new to Amsterdam and the UvA Green Office and am very excited to be a part of a community that shares my passion for sustainability. As communication team coordinator I will work with my team toward reaching more students than ever this year, creating a positive impact and shedding light on the important work of the Green Office in an ever wider circle.
Campus Team Leader
Hi, I am Meriç, 22 years old and originate from Turkey. I’m currently doing my Master’s in Business Administration. I am the new Campus Coordinator of the UvA Green Office. I also function as an editor in Rostra Economica Magazine and Amsterdam Journal of Social Sciences. My (academic) areas of interest are: (environmental) sustainability and human geography, sustainable and ethical marketing, degrowth, political ecology and intersectionality. Aside from my academic responsibilities, I like reading fantasy genre novels, creative writing, playing RPG video games and going for walks in nature.
Research & Education Team Leader
My name is Sofia and I'm the Research and Education team lead for the academic year 2022-2023. Alongside the Green Office, I'm doing my bachelor in Economics&Business Economics and training with my horse. I enjoy exploring the cultural side of the Netherlands and eating out with friends. I'm super excited to start doing research in sustainability related topics and figuring out ways to make our university more green!
Community Team Leader
I am Anna, 20 year old student from Hungary and I am going to act as the Community Coordinator for this academic year at the Green Office. I am in my third year of Sociology and currently studying Communication Science as my minor. The reason why a sustainable future is important for me are tied to human rights. Marginalized groups and poorer countries are more affected by the changing environment and I believe everyone should be able to lead a dignified life with similar opportunities. I am looking forward to working with my talented colleagues and excited volunteers to create events where a community can come together.
