My name is Tanya, I am from Ukraine. I have always been concerned with environmental issues and creating opportunities for youth leadership. In 2015-2017, I co-directed three youth empowerment camps where experts and volunteers taught Ukrainian teenagers about pending social and environmental issues, helped them to grasp project management and fundraising techniques and carry out projects in their own communities. In 2015, as a geography student, I joined the European geography association, where we developed a culture of care for the environment and promoted it through our events and activities. I am happy to continue this path with YEE and hope that together we will create the world where nature doesn’t need to be protected.
