Daura supports us in a range of areas, including project management, climate policy and regulation, as well as projects related to sustainable finance.
She is a board member for the Dutch foundation ‘Nianne,’ which was set up by her family and focuses on using sports to help the social integration of people with disabilities into society. Her parents’ perception that if you realise something needs to change, then it’s time to get involved, is a mindset she recognises in her colleagues and the ways of working at Nordic Sustainability.
At the moment, she is writing her master’s thesis on humanitarian energy and the role that public-private cooperation can play in the decarbonisation of the humanitarian sector. Daura has also recently been selected as a participant in the Bevica Scholarship program. The program focuses on ‘Universal Design,’ and the SDG principle of ‘Leaving No One Behind’, she has been working on a research project that explores the rights of people with disabilities within climate action policy in Denmark.
Daura’s academic pursuits align with her passion for creating a lasting human impact in the face of the climate crisis. She has a strong interest in the cross-over between social and natural sciences, bridging her political studies background at Leiden University College the Hague with her current MSc in Climate Change at the University of Copenhagen.
What I like most about working at Nordic Sustainability is the ‘eyes on the future’-attitude, strategising what needs to be done and how it can be done. It’s all cards on the table.
