European Climate Pact Ambassador in Portugal

Our future is intrinsically, undeniably linked to climate action. Ignoring the emergency of climate change is an act of conscious decision-making against our best long-term interests. I believe education and communication are key values to turn this around. And us, youth, are not settling for less.

I'm currently part of a project (@reboot_earth on instagram) which shares content bringing awareness and tips to both be informed and act against climate change.

I'm producing weekly newsletters for the Reboot community with a more scientific/in-depth view of current environment-related news and will be organizing talks with Reboot in 2021, as we prepare an exhibition in Pavilhão do Conhecimento, Lisboa (Portugal),  an immersive experience to raise awareness on climate change and sustainability.

Apart from individual action, I am involved with project REBOOT, a portuguese-based NGO for communication and raising awareness on climate change. Find us at project-reboot.pt. We are a team of volunteers, passionate about ending the inertia that we witness in every corner of the fight against climate change. Let's get the wheels of this bus-on-fire moving.

Mariana Penetra, currently in the third year of a Degree in International Relations at the University of Coimbra and in 2019 I completed the Expert Track of the UN Environtment MOOC on Marine Litter.

It is important and urgent to inform the population about the impacts of climate change and its ability to affect the conditions of less favored classes, with less capacity for adaptation - this information must be well-founded and scientifically proven, in order to overcome possible skepticism.

I'm a PhD student in Environment and Sustainability, focused on the energy transition at city scale, who is also engaged in community-led local development projects and in national-scale environmental NGOs. As an Ambassor, I will draw on these three roles and seek to raise awareness, transfer knowledge and implement concrete actions, mainly in thematic areas of energy and sustainable food, that can contribute to mitigate climate change and to a more fair, resilient and sustainable society.

A transition to a low carbon and sustainable society is absolutely crucial and urgent, in order to avoid a global climate disaster of a disproportionate magnitude.

As an ambassador it is my mission to contribute to this paradigm shift.  I will use my experience as a marine biologist and a sustainable entrepreneur to inform, alert and engage people and organisations, promoting awareness and the adoption of new behaviours and a stronger involvement and commitment to effective climate actions.

I’m a portuguese ambassador and a student. The climate issues and the need of the politics to make something about this problem always made me wanted to change something and start myself, with the EU help, a lot of projects between schools and young people that may make them realize what their future would be and perhaps make our future and present politics change and create new laws and rules related to the environment.

As a graduate in Engineering Physics, I have always been interested in the energy field and, in particular, the climate crisis. Among many, I participated in EYE 2018, conferences on science journalism related to climate change, and co-authored the Ungdomsøen Manifesto.

After working for two years in corporate, I decided to join the College of Europe in Natolin and combine science with policy-making. I am energic, passionate, and dedicated, and I will bring it to everybody I can reach around me.

Working in business development for a global infrastructure engineering software company, I’m currently responsible for the adoption, integration and acceleration of innovative environmental software technologies within our digital portfolio.

Interacting with a wide and diverse network of contacts, my mission is to evangelize my network on how digital infrastructure can act as a driver of decarbonization, greater climate neutrality, and greater resilience to climate change impacts.

As an Executive Director of an Regional Energy and Environmental Agency, for the last 10 years, and as a professional working in the sector of energy and environment over the last 15 years, most of the work developed through had as the main mission and purpose the promotion and dissemination of the best practices, awareness raising and the effort for the paradigm change in terms of the impact of consumption and human activities particularly those regarding its negative impact in the climate.

Persistent and eager to be a part of sustainability projects. 

At 5 years old, I was looking at a dolphin entertainment show, with child passion eyes and I "understood" it was nature that made me feel the best. 

The older me, almost 20 years later, has more knowledge and experience to apply that enthusiasm and share it with the world. 

That is why we, Reboot Team, are developing an organization to share awareness and create individual commitments. Happy see these projects come to life!

An active citizen involved in the action for climate change, a physics engineering student in love with smart cities, green transport and most of all the energy theme.

My mission is to make communities and specially people who are "indifferent" take action, even if that action is small compared to other more active citizens. We'll only deliver change if everyone is included. 

I'm motivated by my peers, friends, and family, most of all by a clean, healthy, and safe environment.

As an environmental technology student I try day by day to improve my actions to be a better citizen who respects the environment. With this new challenge I will try to pass my knowledge and the knowledge of others ambassadors  to the people and the community around me to be part of the change that needs to be taken to save our planet!
