VSOW consists of a team of young professionals, environmental enthusiasts, eco-activists and artists. We have broad professional backgrounds and working experiences with various international organizations. Our team has roots in media, investigative research, journalism, academia and sustainability education. We have seen local and global layers of environmental, social and economic injustice and worked on understanding and communicating these interconnections. We are personally affected by optimistic alternatives, and share the drive to actively shape socio-ecological transformations and positive messages.
