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.

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.

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 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 am the dreamer of the Bird-Human cooperation system. I have been living and working in nature for more than a decade, so I was able to experience first-hand how much has changed around us in just a few years. And this change warns of many things - we must all hear its alarm bells. As an ambassador, my aim is to open the door of nature and to introduce as many people as possible to the dangers, big questions and proposed solutions of the roads ahead of us. I would like to introduce my followers to the world of the livable future, in which we not only discover the beauties of the world around us, but also do everything to ensure that these treasures remain with us for a long time. Whether it is nature, biodiversity, sustainable production, green solutions, responsible consumption or a change of attitude - I will be there to help!

When I was 6 years old the snow was so big in Romania that it can cover half of my body after a night of heavy snowing. After 22 years in Romania is barely snowing in the winter in the same region that 22 years ago use to cover half my height. I love the nature the lakes, rivers, plants, animals, humans. Since I was young I loved planting trees and I always plant them on every patch of land that I own. I know Romania and I know the solutions to fix it's climate pollution.
