Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Görkem Hayta

Communications & Outreach Advisor, Global Island Partnership

Specialised in strategic marketing and creative communications, Görkem is using her core skill set in cross-cultural relations for the experiential promotion of causes that matter.

A hyphen identity (Turkish-German), she followed internationally her passion in politics and fashion, mainly being based in Paris. An avid swimmer preferring the ocean to the pool, her love for islands emerged during her time living in Sydney, Australia. The weekend hikes from Bondi to Coogee – with compulsory swim in Gordon’s Bay thinking she could detect sharks in the Mediterranean-like, crystal clear water – had a huge impact on her choice to leave The City of Light, Paris.

Today, she lives in the well-known island enclave Stuttgart. A green city in the South of Germany that she loves for its vineyard tours, therapeutic baths and the real Sauerkraut-tasting. From there, she supports GLISPA in experiential marketing and communications activities sharing the Partnership's stories of innovation and leadership in building #ISLANDRESILIENCE. She helps us to tell the full story of #ISLANDHEROES from around the world.
