As a Climate Ambassador, I will promote our Green Deal goals locally and regionally working together with national as well as European levels. My aim is to increase dialogue with local authorities and citizens of my home city and region on how to best put our climate and environmental policy commitments into practice. Tampere has already taken many important steps towards circular economy and carbon neutrality, but more can be done. Good local practices can be linked better to European goals.

Climate action is dependent upon education. I have been active in the field of non-formal education for 23 years,  and have iniated and coordinated a wide range of activities aiming at raising awareness and comprehension on how people can effect change. The young generation must be taught the significance of conservation, the value of a sustainable future, and the need to make responsible decisions. Environmental education must be promoted in our institutions, workplaces, and communities.

As a climate ambassador, I call upon governments, industries, and individuals to take concrete actions. In every aspect of our existence, we must transition to pure and renewable energy sources, reduce our carbon footprint, and adopt sustainable practices.

We are at a historical crossroads. Today's choices will shape tomorrow's world. Let us be remembered as the generation that acted and worked together for the greater good.

Responsibilities

From the bustling streets of Paris and London to the dynamic landscapes of Dubai, I have been an advocate for climate action, particularly within the sphere of the automobile industry's energy transition. My passion for the planet and sustainable design began early on, leading me to pursue studies in architecture at University of Westminster. During my academic pursuits, I did not confine my vision to blueprints and building models. Instead, I ventured into the rapidly evolving world of electric vehicles. Collaborating with innovative teams in the Middle East, I played a pivotal role as a designer in the development of electric charger points for EVs. These designs were not just functional; they embodied a vision of a future where clean energy and urban aesthetics converge. While my roots are firmly planted in architectural design, my heart beats for a world that transitions to cleaner, sustainable energy options.

I am a person who has a vision to change how companies market themselves. I believe in de-growth marketing and sustainable communication tools, which are strategies that aim to reduce the environmental and social impact of marketing activities. I want to help businesses create value for their customers and society, without relying on excessive consumption or exploitation.

Since 2019 I conduct investigations into the negative consequence of climate anxiety in young adults. These consequences have an impact on the mental health of individuals that perceived themselves and their community as unable to purpose effective behavior to mitigate climate change. The scientific literature on this issue suggested that the perception of self and community efficacy could lead to adopting pro-environmental behavior. I would study this phenomenon and spread information about it.

Soy voluntario ambiental con el claro convencimiento de que la mejor acción es el ejemplo. 

Vivo en Andalucía, una de las zonas de la UE donde mayor es el impacto del Cambio Climático. 

Lograr mantener los equilibrios naturales y conseguir que el progreso de las personas sea compatible con la biodiversidad es nuestro gran reto colectivo de los próximos años.

Para ello debemos sustentar nuestras acciones en la conciencia y en hábitos de compra y consumo responsables con todos.

I am an environmental volunteer with the clear conviction that the best action is by example.

I live in Andalusia, one of the areas of the EU where the impact of Climate Change is greatest.

Maintaining natural balances and ensuring that people's progress is compatible with biodiversity is our great collective challenge for the coming years.

To do this, we must support our actions in awareness and in responsible purchasing and consumption habits with everyone.

As a person that grew up with a comfort of a modern life’s pleasures, it took it’s time until I’ll make myself aware at what cost it is coming. Indeed, it made me first sad and sorrow. Thinking the ways to overcome them brought me to world where science on hands with ecology and universe presents us a smart way of existence. The world where we one step forward in understanding our planet better and cooperating with it smarter.

As an ambassador, you can set an example that things are achieved step by step. Every action is important, no matter how small. Achieving a 60% reduction in municipal consumption in a municipality with only 334 inhabitants is a significant feat.

I believe I can raise awareness among the citizens and other municipalities as a success story in green policies and the fight against climate change.

Furthermore, the media visibility I have as the mayor of my town will allow me to reach a broader audience, both nationally and within the European Union.

As a climate justice expert, educator and activist, I am eager to take on the role of Ambassador for the European Climate Pact. With over a decade of expertise in climate justice, I plan to engage with the Pact Community by actively participating in online groups and by sharing the Pact's vital messages and campaigns through various communication channels, including social media, also promoting opportunities for others to become Pact Ambassadors. I will leverage my expertise by writing articles, giving presentations, and creating knowledge materials to facilitate workshops in universities and schools, thereby empowering the younger generation to take meaningful climate action. Moreover, as an activist at heart, I am committed to organising and participating in events that have visible connections with the Climate Pact, ensuring that their actions align closely with the objectives of the Pact, and inspire others to join the climate action movement.

I live in Asturias, a privileged place that makes people aware of the need of their care and protection.

We need to know the worst problem we face as humanity, the climate change, and the best solutions we have to deal with it.

That's why I enjoy creating content and researching from a multidisciplinary perspective as an environmental scientist. It's time to act.
