#13 Anna Stünzi - Think tank leader and climate expert : a lesson of commitmen‪t‬ Brillantes.

    • Culture et société

Anna Stünzi is the president of Foraus, the Swiss think tank dedicated to foreign policy and a researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research... But that's not all. At barely 30, the young woman is also the founder of a solar energy start up, and a member of the board of Gemeinsam Znacht, an association that looks after the integration of migrants.
If I had to define Anna in one word, I would say "committed". Two themes in particular are dear to her: environment and migration. 
In this discussion, Anna explains why her work in the private sector and in associations has always been an excellent way to feed her academic research, and vice versa. We talk about her mission as the president of the Foraus and I question her about the concrete impact of think tanks on public policies. 
Together we also talk about the status of women in the male-dominated world of academic research and how universities should adapt to the modern world. Anna, who also dances one hour everyday, shares with me her secrets for remaining productive and managing so many activities at the same time. 
As you will have understood, Anna is definitely inspiring and enriching, that kind of personality you don't meet every day. So plug in your headphones: its time for the new episode of Brillantes!
