Hello everyone, my name is Antonis Foukaras and I feel really excited to be a part of CO2balance team. I have joined CO2balance a bit more than 2 weeks ago and I have been impressed by the people who work here. I come from the lovely island of Cyprus in South Europe (the second biggest island in the Mediterranean Sea) and I have lived in Britain the last 3 years. I have a Masters in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh and previously I studied Economics in the University Of Crete, Greece. I love travelling, meet new people and cultures and of course love dancing salsa. I have a passion to the environmental sector and I want to contribute to CO2balance’s goals in Carbon offsetting, reduce CO2 emissions and promote sustainable development. It’s been a great pleasure to be a part of CO2balance team and I feel really happy that I have the opportunity to work with so many interesting projects in different countries. As I said, I am really impressed by the people in CO2balance, their level of knowledge, their positive attitude and the help that they have provide me in order to get accustomed to life here in Taunton and feel at home. I m sure that I will have an amazing time here with you guys, work together in interesting projects, find solutions to practical issues and gain significant knowledge. Thank you very much and I’m looking forward to communicating with you again.
