Translation:
By being an environmental ambassador, I want to set an example of a happy life and a happy company, with a decrease in consumption and pollution; with an appreciation for the Earth and Nature, for current and future generations.

The institutions and companies that rule and work in the fields of university education; consumption; economy; agriculture have to become more aware and sensitive to ecology; biodiversity; pollution, and create and try solutions. I want to act in this direction.

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!

My functions focus on communicating, through posts on social media (already over 800 followers) and press releases, valuable information regarding environmental, social and financial sustainability on the topics of Materials, Energy, Nature, Mobility and Food (the 5 Reboot topics).

I also communicate and participate in Reboot events (talks and workshops on theses topics) and engage directly with the Reboot Community, which has more than 200 members.

My mission plan as an Ambassador includes:

  • Bring together citizens and create a two-way worldwide conversation community platform designed for the climate/digital transition;
  • Mobilize thinkers and makers to creatively shape sustainable futures;
  • Share scientific information and raise awareness on topics related to climate change.

Thus, I continue to develop, as I did in Lisboa,  a platform committed to fostering a supportive community for everyone and the climate transition.

As an ambassador, I intend to hold meetings with students and teachers from different countries, with the presence of MEPs and personalities related to the theme, to develop eTwinning projects on the theme, with news in the national press and social networks in the various countries involved.

My main motivation is students who seek to develop knowledge about the European Ecological Pact, looking for answers. Thus, we hope to contribute to a more sustainable world.

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.

As a Climate Pact Ambassador, I plan to disclose opportunities for changing habits and attitudes towards the environment. These actions will be carried out in Schools, Universities and Industries which represent a great opportunity to implement sustainable practices.

Activities will be held according to programs containing information about the importance of natural resources and best practices to be sustainable (6Rs of sustainability, recycle, reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, rethink).

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.

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 https://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.

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 am a Science teacher in Álvaro Velho School, Barreiro, Portugal. Along with Ecoschools, we formed a science Club called "Ecofriends of nature" where we streamlined activities in the context of environmental education for sustainable development. In addition to the use of tecnology, we have a great activity component "In Loco", where there is direct contact with nature and practice activities hands on. I believe ethics and citizenship will lead students in the future to become more proactive citizen.

As an scientific innovation and entrepreneurship teacher and as a consultant in the same fields, I'm determined to shorten the gap between Innovation, Technology Transfer and Circular Economy in the academic world, providing to the students with practical tools to be agents of change in their communities.

With a potentially complementary approach, I'm also looking to work alongside companies with projects that directly impact their carbon footprint and/or waste management.

I strongly believe that the most dangerous climate changes may still be avoided but immediate global action is needed to limit greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to changes that are already locked in. 

Over the last 16+ years I have been involved in many projects promoting low-carbon and climate resilient solutions namely in the fields of energy transition and sustainable finance. 

Over the next years I will continue working to make changes happen since there is still a long way to go!

As an ambassador, my mission will be focused on promoting awareness of the ecological crisis within youth groups and focussing on the important role young people play in combating climate change and meeting SDGs.

One of the main areas of the Portuguese Red Cross Youth is Environmental Education. Besides advocacy, communication and education we are keen in sharing good practices. All throughout the country our young volunteers are empowered to raise awareness through digital communication, publications, training, action days and internal workshops aimed at minimizing climate change effects. We are looking forward to contribute to the European Climate Pact, mobilizing more youngsters in leading solutions.

A transformation to a more resilient, sustainable and fair economy is key in order to avoid a global climate and social crisis. There is an urgent need to change the way we produce, the way we consume and the way we do business.

As a Climate Pact Ambassador I intend to raise awareness mainly in the areas of sustainability, circular and green economy and just transition.

In my role as Ambassador, I would like to Network with other Ambassadors to share knowledge, technical information, and awareness on the topic of forest management and the role of forests in carbon capturing. also, I would like to discuss about possible carbon offsetting tools.

I would like to promote local partnerships with Municipalities and landowners to raise awareness and assist in managing their land, putting in place mechanisms to avoid wildfires. My aim is to plant trees in vacant land and promote the reorganization of existing land. I will be using tech, law, and management skills to put the plan going.
