I am passionate about

Actions

I am an engineer in computering and informatics and currently finishing my masters in social marketing with a focus on problematic gambling. At the time of drafting this description, I am still president of Alcohol Policy Youth Network and the funder of one of the most successful Slovenian non-governmental organizations, the Youth Network No Excuse Slovenia. Being a youth worker for the last 15 years, I contributed to the development of the European health promotion and health-advocacy sector, while at the same time as a trainer and facilitator helped young people to become socially engaged as organizers of many successful international events. As a youth worker I have led several sectoral-developmental projects that were focusing on the topics of health and sustainable development, out of which the most important were the European Environmental and Health Youth Coalition, YU-SEE (Ex-YUgoslavia South-Eastern Europe) network on the impact of different industries on the youth health and environment and Sustainaware - Global Youth Partnership for Education on Sustainable Development.
