Veronica Pedersen

Hello out there! I am half Chilean, half Danish, a bit of a nomad the last few years but currently based in Copenhagen. I studied art history followed by a master’s degree in Business & Development studies – mostly in order to get the insight of how enterprises are run and thus make lasting changes in their practices. Nonetheless, during the last four years working in the foreign service, I’ve come to acknowledge my desire/need to work more directly with environmental matters – as this is where my calling lies. In the beginning of June I volunteered at The Art of Collaboration 2016 in San Sebastian-Donosti, Spain, meeting many inspiring people who are working towards creating a better future in a myriad of ways - and volunteered also at the OuiShare Fest 2016 in Paris this May. I would have liked to participate in the GEN conference in Spain – hopefully next year!
