Learn about our mission, our team, who we’ve worked for, and what people say about us .
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 have also worked as 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 support EUChanger’s trainings, communications, and consultancy as a Junior Consultant. I come from Ecuador where I studied Business Administration and worked in the public sector and the private sector. I graduated with a Master in Rural Development from the University of Ghent in 2021. Since then, I have conducted research on rural development and food systems in the global south and worked for Rikolto International on food governance projects in small and intermediary cities. As a Young Fair Trade Advocate, I support the advocacy of the Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) and have been involved in various initiatives 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.
say about us
“...The key messages I take from the training are: 'it's all about building relations', 'timing is (very) important', and 'anticipating is key'. The training provided me with the tools and knowledge to better strategise my advocacy engagement”

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

I would happily recommend EUChanger for anyone looking to gather intelligence about or influence the EU institutions.
