Joanne is ISEAL’s Events Intern

My role is focused on providing administrative and logistical support for ISEAL’s two big international events: the conference and symposium which this year are taking place in Zurich, Switzerland and Jakarta, Indonesia respectively. I work to ensure the events run smoothly, with an array of speakers and delegates in attendance.

Before ISEAL…

I gathered a range of experience across the sustainability sector through various roles including research assistant with IUCN where I contributed to building a database on human responses to climate change, working in the sales team at Lush UK and as social media assistant with Greenpeace Argentina. I travelled solo through Patagonia, South America for five months and prior to that I graduated from the University of Exeter with a degree in Psychology and German.
