LUCITA COUTO GESTAL

Lecturer/policy officer

Currently our world can feel paralyzing if you can truly grasp the complex reality we live in. Often life can feel hopeless, and it can be difficult to decide where and how to begin? This is why I started the Green Office. I wanted a way for people to get in touch and work on sustainability, social justice and inclusivity. Because doing nothing is not an option. Everybody can do something. This is what the Green office aims to do. My name is Lucita Couto Gestal. I’m a teacher at the part time program Management & Organization. I also teach Corporate Social Responsibility and am a policy officer for the SDG’s (Team?) at the university.  I invite you to pitch your idea; huge policy goals or tangible small ones to us. Together we can improve education, research, or facilities of the university. Get in touch with us. We want to help you with your project and make an impact together. Volunteer today

SEVA KARAGODINS

Title: Intern 

I’m Seva, I study International Financial Management and Control. You can say that my interest in the topic of sustainability began with Green Office, as working with the team on sustainability related projects, while writing a research thesis based on the similar viewpoint. This really made me read into the topic and inadvertently become passionate about it. I really believe that sustainability within business, especially within the intrinsic operations – is rather underexplored, and that could and should be changed. I am eager to get to work on the plethora of sustainability projects, events and especially to collaborate with different faculties to improve both sustainability within THUAS as an environment, business and also curriculum wise.
