Laura grew up in Zurich with two sisters and a big Swiss mountain dog. After studying economics, she found her purpose in sustainability while on exchange in Sweden (thanks in part to the marvels of the Swedish recycling system).
Her next big adventure? Moving to Sydney to undertake a Master of Environmental Management at UNSW. In her thesis, Laura reviewed the Nagoya Protocol’s effectiveness in preventing biopiracy (taking natural resources without asking Traditional Owners for approval) in Australia, and how benefit-sharing mechanisms with Indigenous peoples could be improved.
Laura is happiest when hiking and camping with her friends in the Australian bush, watching the sunrise over a freshly brewed cup of coffee.
