Hi,

My name is Žofie, I am from the Czech Republic, Prague. I joined YEE in 2021, hoping to empower young people in their pursuit of creating a better world.

I got my bachelor’s degree in Biology at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, where I was involved in multiple volunteering groups and got my passion for sustainable community projects. For the past year I have been a full-time climate activist with the movement Extinction Rebellion. Through that I have helped to set up two NGOs in Prague, one focused on organizing Citizen’s Assemblies and another one advocating for the implementation of the Universal Basic Income.

Currently I also focus on developing workshops for people dealing with environmental grief. I love spending time in nature, dancing, and wild swimming. I also enjoy taking care of fungi that feed me- yeast for my bread and SCOBY for my kombucha.
