Nathaly Agosto Filión is honored to be joining the U.S. Climate & Environment Program Team in the role of Program Officer. Nathaly is passionate about practicing sustainability through environmental and social justice activism, personal behavior change, community organizing and civic engagement.
After studying ecology and outdoor education at the University of Vermont, Nathaly worked as environmental educator using New York City's parks and green spaces with the City Parks Foundation and Christodora, Inc. In shifting her attention to focus on the climate crisis, she took on the role of community organizer with Oxfam America’s Climate Justice campaign and interned with 350.org before returning to academia to complete a Master's degree in Natural Resources. Her graduate project, "Preparing and Adapting to Climate Change in Rural Dominican Republic: An Assessment of Community Preparedness for Lake Enriquillo Flooding," focuses on bridging the distance between national climate adaptation planning and community-level development priorities, especially in the context of disaster risk preparedness. Most recently, Nathaly has been consulting with the Climate Action Planning team of Burlington, Vermont to systemize and streamline municipal greenhouse gas emissions accounting.
