The Wellbeing Economy Alliance is thrilled to welcome three new members to the amp team this week. Anna Chrysopoulou and Usman Tufail will be based in Glasgow along with many of the other team members, and Amanda Janoo will be based in Vermont (after spending her first few weeks with the team in Glasgow too!)
We asked them to tell us a bit more about themselves and why they’re excited to work with WEAll:
Anna Chrysopoulou, Advocacy Officer
“I was studying Economics at the University of Athens when my first questions about our current economic system and its impact on the environment arose for me.
I moved from Greece to Edinburgh, UK to study Ecological Economics, trying to find those answers. My interest in political ecology, community empowerment, and exercising practices that place people and the planet ahead of profit makes me passionate about working with WEALL. I’ve been volunteering with WEAll Scotland for several months now, it’s been a fantastic way to get actively involved in building a wellbeing economy.
Being surrounded by like-minded team members is inspiring – more than ever I’m convinced that not only is system change urgent, but also feasible! ”
Amanda Janoo, Knowledge and Policy Lead
