ZOE WINCK COMMUNICATIONS

Constantly learning, she cultivates an open mind and a healthy dose of optimism. Zoe is passionate about holistic, inclusive and sustainable development, particularly in urban areas and at city level. One of the main challenges of addressing climate change in her view is the interplay of different spheres of society such as research, governance, private and public sectors. This is where her passion for sustainable development and her communication skills come together: in order to mediate and build bridges between sectors and facilitate new dynamics.
