At EUChanger we support organisations working for a more inclusive, equal, and sustainable Europe, to re-balance power in EU decision-making in favour of the public interest.
We do this through trainings and by providing strategic advice, coaching and assistance in delivering effective advocacy at EU level.
We are also keen to help young professionals seeking to become public interest advocates to develop their EU knowledge, their influencing skills and their network.
I founded EUChanger in 2018. I'm a lawyer with over twenty years of experience as an advocate for human rights, the environment and economic justice. Since 2011, I have been a member of Oxfam International’s EU advocacy team, leading on the organisation’s influencing work in various areas of EU policy and legislation, including on financial regulation, climate change, renewable energy, unfair trading practices and corporate governance. I am also an EU policy consultant for the Natural Resource Governance Institute and Publish What You Pay (PWYP), a global movement working to ensure that revenues from oil, gas and mining help improve people’s lives.
I am an Irish-Portuguese Junior Policy Consultant at EUChanger. My academic background is in European Studies, graduating in 2020 from Trinity College Dublin. I am currently doing research at University College Cork (UCC) on citizens and the energy transition. I participated in the European Solidarity Corps, working for a year on social inclusion and environmental protection projects in the North of Portugal with development NGO Rosto Solidário. I am also a Young Fair Trade Advocate and have been collaborating with the Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) on several advocacy projects at EU level.
Who we’ve worked for
We have worked for organisations of all sizes and with advocates of diverse backgrounds from across Europe. They are active on a wide range of issues: climate, the environment, human rights, migration, finance, development, humanitarian affairs, corporate accountability, criminal justice and more. The desire to promote the public interest is what they all
have in common.

You really know your stuff and you share the knowledge. I have plenty of ideas on how to improve my own campaigns.

Invaluable insights on the EU law-making process. This should be a compulsory training for all NGOs campaigners and advocates!
