New Trainees in the Urbanscape team
We are a young group of three that got the opportunity to work as trainees at Knauf Insulation as part of the Green solution group. We became part of this team because we want to leave the world a greener place – for us, and for future generations, too. Our mission is to present Green solutions to the world, make it greener bit by bit every day, and save our precious water that is still too often taken for granted. Fresh out of college and full of energy and new ideas that make our working approach just a little different we’re looking to bring a little bit of green to every square meter of concrete.
And even though Slovenia is a small country, our boss managed to find three quite different people, all of whom share the common desire for a greener tomorrow. This is who we are:
Landscape architect, enjoying the playful time of spring, collecting moments and memories, finding revitalization and inspiration in the simplicity of nature’s wilderness. In the face of daily challenges trying to stay close to nature, with the thought that “in every walk with nature one receives far more than seeks.”
I would describe myself as a person who enjoys life, with a passion for surfing, good food and giving the most of what I have to give. This year, while working for Knauf Insulation, I finished my studies and now have a Master’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Ljubljana. All my life I have been playing and training handball and other sports, so I am always on the move. The Urbanscape team is not just the start of my career – it’s also about being a part of something bigger, about stopping and even reversing the process of climate change, about striving to create greener cities and reduce the heat island effect.
In my final year of studies in Landscape Architecture – and a lover of animals and nature in general. I love to cook and to travel, as this is the best way to experience the unexpected. My life is always in motion – so if you see me do nothing, I must really be enjoying it. In summer I like to spend my days off somewhere out in the natural surroundings and out on/in the water; during the winter I am happiest on my snowboard. In between I try to keep a bunch of plants I have alive.
Like any other beginning our start as trainees at Knauf Insulation was hard, and a little confusing as well. But having great colleagues makes it that much easier for us to learn something new every day. Now, after our first two months, we can say that we have already learned a lot, have got to know the company, how to communicate with customers, and to simply pack a bunch of green cubes. And we are ready for the many new challenges that are out there waiting for us.
And now that we’re no longer so overwhelmed we get to share our thoughts with you – through our regular blogs! :)
