About | Emmalene Wysocki

Emmalene Wysocki

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) where I am investigating psychosocial factors that predict use of active transport (e.g., walking/cycling) instead of motorised transport.


I have mostly worked in the corporate industry where I have developed and managed various projects and produced a large portfolio of written content. I have gratefully been involved in projects that have facilitated improved corporate social responsibility, which legitimised my long-term passion for sustainability and led my career switch.

Into the future, I would like to create more sustainable societies through strategic implementation that advocate sustainable behaviour, at the individual and systemic levels. I absorb value in all things sustainability but express particular interest in the areas of consumer demand, plastic use, low-carbon travel, and food waste.
