Sustainability made simple

Eilidh Dempsey

Hi, I’m Eilidh, a 23-year old Scottish and Irish student who grew up in Luxembourg, currently living in Stockholm and completing my masters degree in Globalization, Environment and Social Change, after having received a previous masters degree in Geography and Hispanic Studies at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. During my studies at both universities, my awareness and appreciation for the environment developed into an enthusiasm to support and learn about sustainability and conservation. This motivated me to adjust my lifestyle and consumer habits in order to contribute more effectively and actively to the ongoing global battle against climate change. I am a vegan and a very keen cook who loves to experiment with new recipes using seasonal and local ingredients. I am also trying to become as zero-waste as possible, and am loving the challenge so far!
