In 2009 I left the beloved isles Aotearoa on a learning adventure in Europe and the U.K. I was privileged to accompany the NZ Youth Delegation to COP15 in Copenhagen and a series of wonderful surprises and opportunities led to me settling in the magical city of Aarhus in Denmark where I am now living and working for an international wind energy company.
I have been an activator, organiser and interferer for the Intersect Network, Frocks on Bikes, the World Environment Day Freeze and other mischief. Before I left NZ I worked for the Sustainable Business Network as an coordinator and advisor.
I like bicycles, dress up parties, peace and quiet, poetry, community notice boards, wedge shaped buildings and busting moves on the dance floor.

All the best for the Auck's frock adventures, I echo Nick's congrats below....
Hey Jasmine, I was just reading your post on the group flightless birds, I'd be really keen to share ideas for low carbon low cost travel in Europe. I've just been accepted to go with the Youth Delegation and am hoping to add more than one reason for taking an enormous carbon belching flight! When are you heading over there? I think I heard from Tanya that you're going quite soon! If you are I hope all the travel goes well and smoothly!
