Last autumn, TheCompensators* welcomed Abraham Menaldo, our first intern. Nine months later and 2,227 emissions certifiactes less Abraham has returned to the United States and TheCompensators* say thank you!
Abraham came to Germany with the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX) and chose to join TheCompensators* for an internship as part of the fellowship program. His departure leaves its marks: We miss Abraham as part of our team. Thanks to his profound understanding of climate policy issues and his excellent language skills our German and English website was more up to date than ever.
Abraham contributed greatly to our Christmas Special 2013 and the pilote project to our Climate-neutral shopping campaign, which took place in the course of the Wirkcamp 2013 in Lüneburg, Germany. In March, Abraham travelled to Bonn, to represent TheCompensators* at the conference “Advancing the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda“. He has also left us with some great new ideas that we hope to put into action in the near future.
Last but not least, Abraham boosted our core activity. While he was our intern, TheCompensators* deleted allowances equivalent to 2,227 tonnes of CO2!
Working with and knowing Abraham was a great enrichment and luck for our cause as well as for us personally!
Thank you, Abraham!
