Marcela Bustillo Sanchez

Project coordinator

Pushed by my passion for the environment and its protection, I studied environmental engineering, graduating valedictorian of my generation. In my professional career I worked as environmental specialist in the hydrocarbons and construction sector. On the side, I carried out volunteer activities focused on the conservation and care of the environment. In 2018, I was selected by the Patiño Foundation among 105 applicants to be awarded a full scholarship in order to complete a MSc. in Environmental Science, orientation Natural Hazards and Risk in Switzerland. Currently, I am working as project coordinator for a project guided to adapt to climate change and strengthen resilience of indiginous communities.
