Having worked in the humanitarian sector for a decade, Hilde gained knowledge on the complexities of geopolitics and conflict issues over global natural resources. This experience has only augmented awareness of our consumerist behaviours in our own local and daily habitats. Having become a mother increased the desire to be more vigilant in terms of protecting our environment and developing a more sustainable society. Whether it concerns repairing and refurbishing her existing goods, growing her own food, pursuing a vegan lifestyle, stimulating organic consumption or increasing general awareness on the impact we have on our environment, the act of transpiring ideas and knowledge about this has become an essential source of inspiration to her. Next to being an Ambassador for ZeroWaste Switzerland, Hilde is pursuing studies in becoming an advisor on nature and environmental affairs.
