My Name is Verena, I am 24 years old and originally from Germany. This autumn I am starting my master’s in Governance of Sustainability in The Hague.
In my free time I like to garden, read, and go second-hand shopping. I also enjoy cooking and hosting dinner for friends while I try out new dishes from around the world. As I grew up close to the Alps, I also go hiking and skiing as often as I can.
I love being out in nature and hiking in the mountains. Seeing the direct effects of climate change there made me think of how i can live more sustainably. Some ways I enjoy a more sustainable lifestyle are cooking with fresh, seasonal, and local food purchased directly from the farmers at one of the many markets in Zuid-Holland.
Beside that, I also love strolling through second-hand stores and have already found so many unique pieces - it is such a great way of giving clothes and furniture a second life.
