Raphaela Raaber is passionate about holistic and creative approaches for Sustainability and Community Projects. Finding innovative solutions for complex problems is one of her expertise. Raphaela has completed studies in Community Development and International Aid and Development (BA), Social Work and Business Management (BA) and is currently completing a Masters in Sustainable Development.
In her recent position as a Manager of a Solidary and Sustainable Association in Mayotte, she elaborated, designed, and delivered strategic sustainability plans, sustainable behavioural change programs, and creative community engagement projects for social equity. She established networks and partnerships for sustainable progress that included actors from communal and local, as well as political and governmental levels.
Her previous professional pathway has offered her opportunities to work in different countries such as Mayotte, Spain, Peru, Australia, New Caledonia, and Germany. The four languages, German, English, Spanish, and French, that she speaks fluently enables Raphaela to achieve an excellent engagement with culturally and linguistically diverse stakeholders.
In the last 15 years within her work and studies in settings that seek to empower communities and increase Sustainability, she has gained critical insights that are indispensable to competently support GLISPA’s global partners in their journey to achieve Sustainability.
