I'm an UvA student from New Zealand and one of this year's two General Managers of the UvA Green Office. I study Sociology, which has taught me that the best way forward is striving for social and climate justice together. I would like to work on better social equality at the UvA through fair pay and other diversity measures for staff and students, and demonstrate values of climate justice on campus by reducing waste and promoting green options. My personal interests lie in studying environmental racism, the intersect between urban places and sustainability (think green, liveable cities for all), and ecofeminist philosophy. This is my third year with the Green Office and I'm thrilled to be now leading the team with Zita.
My name is Zita, I’m a third-year PPLE student, majoring in law. This is my second year at the Green Office, and I’m super excited to share a role with Lucy as co-manager! I hope this year we can pick up some projects from pre-corona and also keep other ones going that we started during corona, but most importantly, I am excited to work with our growing group of members and interact with the wider GO community!
Communications Team Leader
My name is Khushi, I am a second-year Business Administration student leading the communications team. I'm excited to be part of the GO community (especially everything in person). I love singing, barre, and exploring Amsterdam. I hope to increase our reach especially through social media and make it easier for students at the UvA to find information on becoming more sustianable.
Community Team Leader
My name is Giovanna Hunsrao and I am currently a third year student of Psychology with a minor in International Development. I enjoy anything creative or in the outdoors and am a huge foodie. By being in the Green Office this year, I hope to expand the community of sustainable students in Amsterdam by bringing together multiple groups within the city who's goal align with that of the Green Office and pave a road to being a sustainable citizen through events, workshops and loads more!
Research & Education Team Leader
I'm Gabi Aguilar. I am currently acting as the Head of Research and Education at the UvA Green Office and conducting research as a New Media and Digital Culture student at the Graduate School of Humanities. My academic interests center on the impact of our digital carbon footprints, digital activism, and sustainable technology. I am new to Amsterdam and the UvA Green Office and excited to help make impactful change on campus and beyond.
Campus Team Leader
I was born and raised in Prague, Czech Republic. I did my Bachelors in European Studies, majoring in European Economics. Currently, I am doing my Masters in European Policy. I am passionate about economics, the European Single Market and how can sustainability be taken into account in the economic models. This year, my main goal will to implement reusable cups at the campus. I will also dedicate my focus on initiatives that will make our campus more sustainable, such as implementing CO2 emissions labels at the cafeteria.
