Contexte

As a European Climate Pact Ambassador, I have worked on projects in Iceland, Greece and the European Union as a whole, and I also actively participated in two EU Youth Policy Dialogues with the Executive Vice-President of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans and with the Commissioner Sinkevicius. At the same time; I am involved in some youth constituencies of the United Nations, and engaged with NATO's Allied Command Transformation Innovation Hub. Lastly, I am active in EU advocacy, which mainly consists of climate and sustainability-related matters, while I am also diligent in Greek politics. Concerning my professional experience, currently working as Head of Green and Sustainable Transition at our family-run agricultural business, while I have Board Member and Head of Department duties in several European and international think tanks in the fields of human resources, strategic communications, international affairs and European Union advocacy. Furthermore, I am working in organizations that focus on topics like energy, the European Green Deal, climate & sustainability, as well as the green transition. Lastly, I have recently co-founded with other young climate pact ambassadors from around Europe a climate-related advocacy think tank, EOS Europe of which I was elected as its 1st president.
