PROJECT AND ON SITE MANAGER
I gained experience in sustainability in Malta and Israel, working with leading festivals and NGO’s on creating and implementing environmental policies. My field of expertise is food waste management in all aspects, from education to concept and hands-on work in making ideas happen. I facilitated dialogue and communication between stakeholders and managed execution of policies during the Earth Garden Festival in Malta, working directly with operators. I aided NGO Robin Food in Haifa Israel in their communications and daily operations. My current work focuses on education, carrying out workshops and training in environmental awareness, zero waste and food waste management, as well as expanding my experience in environmental policy for festivals and events.

She joined GGE four years ago and has been an on site manager for a number of festivals as well as helping with campaigns pre and post festival.

A Word from Our Clients
“Global Green Events are a unique, passionate, tribe of sustainability specialists with versatile in-depth experience of sustainable event management and sustainable consultancy. Who are invaluable to have on board. Passionate, driven, generally awesome, and calm in environments that can often be quite stressful, which is invaluable in event management.”
“An approachable company with a variety of tailorable services that can be easily tailored to the needs of the organisation. Easier to work with than other companies as they use an informal setting. And a job well done.”
“They were the stepping stone between our ideals and the actual hands-on activities. Global Green Events were the bridge as we didn’t have the know how. It’s one thing to have the idea and another thing to be able to do it. For example, we wanted to recycle but we couldn’t find the way to do it successfully, before they came along. That’s why its good to work with professionals.”
