Alexandra Demoustiez (Université libre de Bruxelles):

Alexandra works as Environment Coordinator at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). She is the Director of Coordination environnementale, a department in charge of implementing and managing the environmental management of all ULB sites. She holds a Master degree in Economics & Management and a Master in Environment. After 18 years in the private sector, and convinced by environmental concerns, she did a U-turn in her career choosing to implement and manage the environmental policy of ULB, a challenging and fascinating work!
Alexandra believes in exchanges and partnerships between Universities in order to build a constructive network helping universities to face environmental & sustainability challenges. In that respect, UGAF platform could be a strong tool to strengthen environmental & sustainability commitment and to achieve results via the Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe – UNICA.

Carla Farelo (University of Lisbon):

Carla has a degree in Environmental Engineering from Universidade Lusófona de Humanidade e Tecnologias, Portugal. She worked as a Project Manager in Portugal BCSD (Business Council for Sustainable Development), and now works as a Sustainability Officer at Universidade de Lisboa.
She believes that UGAF is an excellent platform for sharing best environmental practices which can create major opportunities for the sustainable development of society.
She joined UGAF because she believes that universities have a major role in training "sustainable" future leaders.

Mihkel Kangur (Tallinn University):

Mihkel is Director of the Institute of Ecology at Tallinn University and Head of Senate of Tallinn University. He holds a PhD degree in Ecology. His work involves mainly research on ecosystems dynamics but also participating in different strategic planing working groups related with sustainable development.
He believes UGAF initiative is a unique opportunity to learn and explore possibilities how to make universities campus greener, more sustainable and cut the costs of maintenance; it also builds a network for further studies of sustainability and sustainability training of students.
He joined UGAF to find similarly-minded colleagues to work out a tool on how to measure our green academic footprint, let's see what comes out of that :-)
