I am a young climate activist with a passion for climate justice. Through my work in YOUNGO I advance the integration of human rights and intergenerational justice into policy and discourse, while in my role as a Global Youth Ambassador for GAUC I mobilise action and bring the perspectives of marginalised youth to the decision-making table.

With over 12 years of volunteer work behind me, I am an experienced community organiser and have made numerous interventions as a speaker and in the media. Academically, I have produced award-winning work on EU Climate Policy and conducted research on climate assemblies and intergenerational justice.

I am eager to put my knowledge and experience to the service of young Romanians by developing and delivering a Climate training programme aimed at educating the youth on the climate crisis and the comprehensive EU plan to tackle it. I am looking forward to building capacities and creating a youth network for climate policy.
