Ever since I joined AEGEE, International relations and politics have played an important role in my life. Not only as an academic career, but especially in considering the importance of cooperation in shaping our global commitments in combating climate change and pollution. By inviting people from all over the world, we hope to bring multiple perspectives and ideas to the fore, while also highlighting the interdisciplinary approach to the subject. Throughout my studies, the consequences of climate change on global politics has been of great importance to me.
Within AEGEE, I have mostly been active on the local level in the Netherlands, where I also helped organise a small symposium about energy efficiency. Now, I look forward to help create an event that incorporates both diplomatic and technical approaches to resolving the issues arising with climate change and pollution.
