About | Contributor | Sophie Hansen

Sophie Hansen

I have a learned practical and theoretical knowledge of the natural world that surrounds us as well as the structures that underpinn our societies. I have gained this through academic and volunteer opportunities and believe a well rounded, holistic approach is vital in tackling sustainable finance and climate related issues.


I have completed a Bachelor of Animal & Veterinary Biosciences majoring in Animal Science at La Trobe University. I am currently completing a Masters of Environment and Sustainability specialising in Envrionmental Security as well as International Development and Envrionment at Monash University.

I have a passion for the natural world around us. I am interested in the multifaceted ways in which the world operates and interacts and am keen to broaden my knowledge in order to enhance the approaches that are taken when addressing climate change and related issues.
