Angela Serratore
Program Manager

After her Bachelor’s degree in International Management at the ZHAW in Winterthur, Angela worked for a long time in the education sector designing international continuing education modules. In 2015, she decided to travel to Africa and Southeast Asia. Far from Western society, she was directly confronted with the consequences of climate change and the overuse of natural resources. These experiences strengthened Angela’s commitment to nature and sustainability with her economic background. She completed an agricultural internship on an organic farm in Seuzach. Before starting as a project manager for “Every Cell Counts” (JZZ), she worked for a Swiss foundation for the implementation of sustainable agricultural projects in Côte d’Ivoire.

 

Carine Neier
Project Lead Schools

As a former girl scout, Carine Neier developed a strong connection to nature as a child. After studying natural sciences at the ETH, she dedicated herself to scientific education. She gained her first experience in education at the Neuchâtel Museum of Nature and later worked as an editor for the public magazine Technologist, where she dealt with social issues related to science and technology. At the Walter Zoo and the Thurauen Nature Centre, she deepened her knowledge in the environmental field and designed and implemented practical educational programmes for school classes as well as for adults. Since 2020, she has been supporting the climate schools in the field of education.

 

Dietmar Kohler
Education

How do children develop an awareness of their environment?

For several years, Dietmar has been bringing the topics of energy+climate and waste+consumption into classrooms as an environmental teacher for Pusch. At the same time, he continues to develop the educational activities in the climate school team. Didactically, his experience from several years of leading Technorama workshops and slam lectures helps him. From a technical point of view, the physicist with a doctorate in solar cells has a broad background. Because it is important to him to reach the heads and the hearts.

 

 

Ilona hält Planeten in den Händen

Ilona Meili
Project Lead Schools

Ilona loves to be out and about in nature, and is particularly fascinated by the mountains. During her geography studies at the University of Zurich, Ilona learned a lot about the connections between natural processes and human activities. In the process, she was repeatedly confronted with the global effects of climate change and studied the topic in depth. Ilona gained her first experience in environmental education during an internship in the Swiss National Park. In her Master’s thesis, she looked at the impact of the climate strike movement on the environmental awareness and behaviour of young people in Zurich. Ilona also completed her teaching diploma for Matura schools and has taught at various grammar schools for the past two years. Ilona has been accompanying the Climate School team as project manager since June 2022.

 

Nadine Stähli

Since her childhood, Nadine Stähli has been fascinated by the diversity of nature and was repeatedly confronted with the global effects of climate change during her travels. She completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Environmental Sciences at ETH Zurich and travelled to Indonesia for four months to support environmental protection projects on site. She gained her first experience in environmental education during her internship at the Jungfrau-Aletsch UNESCO World Heritage Site in Valais, where she focused on the effects of climate change in the Alpine region. She wrote her master’s thesis in northern Macedonia on the sustainable intensification of agriculture. Since August 2021, she has been accompanying the Climate Schools as project manager.

 

 

Ronja Karpf
Project Lead Communications

After her basic training as a businesswoman, Ronja specialised in the areas of events, marketing and communication. Regardless of the industry, sustainability and ecological aspects were always at the forefront of event planning and projects. Working as a communication planner in climate protection opens up an optimal working environment for her.

 

Tina Kohler
Fundraising

Environmental protection, plant-based nutrition and conscious consumption have always been important areas of interest for the musicologist. After moving from Germany to Switzerland five years ago, the desire to work professionally for these values became clearer and clearer. She began to work intensively on sustainability projects, regenerative agriculture and permaculture and to write about these topics as a freelance journalist. Her career change led her to fundraising for Doctors Without Borders and finally, via Greenpeace, to the Climate School. She has been working in the fundraising team since February 2021.

 

SOPHIA NIEDERHAUSER
PROJECT ASSISTANT

Sophia Niederhauser has graduated from the Kantonsschule Zürcher Oberland in 2022 and plans to study political science after her one-year internship at MyBluePlanet. She has been interested in climate change and its global impact for several years. Today, she is involved at various levels and would like to work in this field after her studies. The internship at MyBluePlanet gives Sophia the opportunity to gain her first work experience and further her education in the topic of climate protection and sustainability.

Esther hält Planet in den Händen

Esther Brechbühler
Project Manager

Growing up in the Bernese Jura, Esther spent a lot of time in nature, hiking, skiing and other activities. After her Matura and half a year in Bolivia, she went to Zurich to the ETH, where she began her studies in environmental sciences. This degree enabled her to deepen her knowledge of the environment and nature. Shortly before completing her Master’s degree, however, she took a break and went to Norway. There she worked for three months at an environmental organisation that cleaned the coasts and fjords of plastic and other waste.

Daniel Lüscher
Co-Program Manager

Daniel Lüscher’s heart beats for his family, climate protection and the blue planet. Growing up in the Appenzell region, he studied electrical engineering EurEta and industrial engineering SVTS in St. Gallen, ultimately to realise his childhood dream of becoming a pilot. As an airline pilot with Swissair and Swiss, he saw the beauty of the blue planet during his professional life – but also its vulnerability. In 2007, he realised that it was high time to act – which is why he founded the climate protection movement MYBLUEPLANET. Today, as president of MYBLUEPLANET, he is still passionately committed to climate protection and works part-time as a captain at WestAtlantic. Daniel Lüscher lives in Winterthur with his wife and daughter.
