Saying goodbye to our colleagues
IFOAM Organics Europe is saying goodbye to Yulia Barabanova who has left the organisation at the end of March. Yulia joined us in 2014. During all the 8 years in the organisations, Yulia has had a key role. She successfully guided IFOAM Organics Europe through two vision and strategy processes during which she intensively collaborated with the board, council, and staff. In addition, Yulia was part of the TP Organics secretariat, where among many other things she coordinated the writing of the 3rd Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda. Yulia has made a huge contribution to the recognition that TP Organics receives from policy makers nowadays. Yulia has decided to explore new career options, but we are sure she will bring the organic spirit to her new workplace. All colleagues, and the whole organisation, are very thankful for all the work she did for IFOAM Organics Europe and TP Organics. We all wish her success and happiness in the next steps of her career.
After 5 months spent in our FLOEE unit as a volunteer Axel Géry left us to undertake personal projects. His permanent good mood, his help in the management of the daily operational tasks and the organisation of some internal events (Christmas lunch Monthly meeting) show us his flexibility and his polyvalence. We wish him all the best for his next project.
