LUCITA COUTO GESTAL

Title: 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. Come to our Monday Meetings! We want to help you with your ideas and make an impact together. become a GO member today!

Hassan Hassan Amr Mahmoud Abouhaib

Title: Student-assistant

My name is Hassan and I study Industrial Design Engineering. Through my study I have learned about the importance of sustainability in the production of every day goods and the impact it has on people in different societies & environments. When I heard about the work that the Green Office was doing I became very eager on joining the team. I'm interested in making the clothing industry more sustainable and changing how people view fashion. I plan on raising awareness on a more sustainable lifestyle by applying the skills I use in my study to have our message communicated clearly in the design of our events and activities.

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.
