International development and the environment caught my interest already as a child. I can't stand injustice, whether it's against people or nature. Therefore a job at a human rights and environmental organization like Both ENDS is all I could wish for.

The work my colleagues at Both ENDS do is quite specialised but at the same time all-encompassing. Policies and decisions made here in the Netherlands or at the international level have impact all around the world. I find that incredibly interesting and it's a fantastic challenge to write about this in such a way that it is understandable for outsiders as well. Communication can also play an important role in lobby and advocacy and in knowledge exchange. It inspires me to to think along about the communications channels we might use to achieve the best results.
