“My interest in sustainability grew organically from my days in university. While there, I majored in International Relations and was part of a student-run organization that regularly organized events on the topic. Currently, I work in marketing and communications for the UBS Optimus Foundation, which invests in social and financial innovations that benefit children worldwide. I love what I am doing because I think that working together to solve some of the biggest problems that prevent children from thriving, secures a sustainable future for everyone.
“It’s funny – I remember going to a GreenBuzz thematic evening last year on “Creating a Sustainable Food Future” and was so inspired by one of the speakers there, I thought to myself, “I want to do what she does!”
Outside of work, I am personally really interested in the topic of sustainable food systems. My passion for it stems from my experience growing up on an organic farm in Switzerland, which is something that remains close to my heart. It was definitely an interesting childhood – rearing cows for milk production, growing crops like wheat and corn and being almost self-sufficient by growing vegetables and fruits on the farm to provide food for the family.

Every time I go to a GreenBuzz event, I have an enriching learning experience. It truly amazes me how diverse the community is. I’ve met hardcore researchers from universities, CSR professionals, communicators, engineers and techies, development specialists… the list goes on. Everyone is really open and engaging – something I have seen and appreciate about the community.”
I don’t think however, that I have made the most out of the opportunity to engage the community so far. I want to change that, which is why I decided to become a Connect member.
Being a GreenBuzz Connect Member ensures that I am regularly updated on the sustainability scene, and can continue to add specialist knowledge to my general understanding of sustainability. I also find the chance to strategically connect with specific sustainability innovators of my choice – a great resource!”
