I am a sustainability consultant based in Athens, Greece and my focus is in sustainable sports events where I provide the organising committee with the appropriate knowledge on how to reduce negative environmental impacts as well as raising environmental awareness to all stakeholders and participants involved.
To support projects with meaningful outcomes is my addiction! I founded the festival TrashStock Mustik Artistik Plastik, a Bali based 2 days event of art exhibition with artwork using or inspired by plastic pollution as well as concert by environmentalist bands. Of course, everything is made to be as sustainable as possible.

Alicia studies PPE at Durham University and became passionate about sustainability whilst on her year abroad in Barcelona, studying under Marc Le Menestrel.
She is currently writing her dissertation, giving a philosophical argument in defence of corporate social responsibility. This has driven her to find out more about how business can incorporate a sustainable protocol into their core practises.
In developing countries like mine (Azerbaijan), where events are commonly held to promote a country, it is obvious how our actions negatively affect all three dimensions of sustainability and put next generation in danger. I think sustainability actions is a key solution to minimising negative effects now and eliminate any in the future.
