Remus Bandacu

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself.

Climate change is the generation-defining zeitgeist of today, and in the past, I felt a deep sense of anxiety and powerlessness to make a difference. With a bit of encouragement and inspiration from my mother (whose work in biodiversity conservation in her long tenure at the UNDP I’ve always admired), I changed careers and obtained a Master’s from LSE in 2022. Through my work at E Co, I no longer feel powerless, but inspired-and fulfilled-to play a part, however small it may be, in tackling climate change and helping people around the world cope with all its present and future impacts.

What makes you laugh?

Dad jokes and terrible puns consistently make me laugh.

What would you desire most if stranded on a desert island?

A talking parrot sidekick with a knack for stand-up comedy to keep me entertained.

How would you like to be remembered?

I’d like to be remembered as a driver for positive change and a devoted mentor.

If you were world leader, what’s the first thing you would change?

As world leader, I’d do everything in my power to prioritise global cooperation to address the climate crisis and promote peace.
