Ewelina comes from a small town in southeastern Poland, Sandomierz. She studied social geography and management and marketing in public administration at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.

From 2007 to 2009 she worked on urban revitalisation projects for Noworol Consulting. Since 2008 she has been living in Berlin, and since 2011 she has been active in CRN in various projects. She focuses on sustainability, circular economy, improving the quality of life in cities, integration, and urban tourism. She sees Berlin as an inspiring urban laboratory where she can meet many new ideas and inspiring activists and actively participate in various initiatives that change the world for the better.

This is also what Erasmus+ projects are for her – a chance to learn about new solutions from different countries and create tools to improve this world. Berlin Wedding – whre she works and lives, is a fascinating district of Berlin with many diverse cultures.
