Hola! My name is Carla Madueño Florian. I am a Peruvian Biologist graduated at the University of Munich and holder of a M.Sc degree in Global Change Ecology from the University of Bayreuth. I currently work as a Sustainability Consultant for a German Big4. For the last eight years I have studied and travelled between Europe and America following my passion for ecological research, biodiversity conservation and climate action. I have had the amazing opportunity to join IFSA´s delegations to high-level conferences in Rome and Bonn and make a statement together with young peers to halt global deforestation. Being part of the IFSA and YIL Initiative helped me realized how much I enjoyed advocating for nature protection and be a voice for the often called “voiceless”, and how much this voice is needed. Nature is an entity I advocate for in every role I have had, as a sister and daughter in my family, as a student with my University friends, as a researcher and the Organizations that supported my academic training so far, and as a young professional in my current workplace. My message: “Youth is the key ally in any decision we take to protect the Earth”. I am deeply grateful for GLF providing me the tools, skills and the ideal network to meet young people alike, aiming to create seascapes and landscapes of sustainability now!
