People

GreenUp is a collaboration between many great people. We have a team of special people working part-time but with all their hearts on our mission, some paid and some unpaid. As we are an association, our Board gives direction and works with the team on concrete issues and projects. And last but not least, we have a very dynamic group of volunteers who form the core of the association.

I love being amazed by the beauty of nature over and over again, be it while foraging for mushrooms with my children or when snowboarding in the forests of Davos.

I’m a sustainability aficionada and a minimalist. Life has become less stressful, I have become more productive in my daily life and I’m only surrounded by things that make me happy.

“Be the change you wish for this world” a statement I try to live by. I’m actively engaged in different sustainable projects and events in and around Basel.

I enjoy nature, and take any chance to bring more of it to our daily lives.

The nature is my playground when I ski or hike but is also the space where I like to chill.

I try to do my best to preserve the earth and I like to be part of a community that tries to maintain our world so beautiful.

Clarissa Bonzanigo

Team-Lead Lugano

Nature is a continuous discovery, and life is a journey in search of a balance between us and the beauty that surrounds us. Adopting a more sustainable lifestyle is also about finding harmony with the environment in which we live, and there is an urgent need to mobilize to effect change. For us and for future generations.

Board

Renée LaPlante

President

I’m passionate about education, inspiration and collaboration for a net negative and regenerative future. GreenUp brings Switzerland together and shows us all local ways to live lighter and happier with less. This day-to-day embodiment is what will make our future truly sustainable, so that’s why I support GreenUp!

Natalia Schwarz

Past-President

I find it very liberating to enjoy the simple side of life and always feel very at peace while gardening, cooking some fresh and healthy food, caring for my rescue animals or being carried away on a walk in the forest by the peaceful atmosphere.

Heather Moore

Communications & Marketing

My happy place is in the mountains, high up enjoying the view or swimming in clear, fresh water. These environments are so fragile, and I want future generations to be able to enjoy them as much as I do, which is why I’m working with GreenUP.

We need to change to give our children the best future. That’s why I love to find new ways to do things better and share it with others. Simplicity is the soul of happiness.
