Emily Bankert

“Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations." –Dr. Mae Jemison

Emily joined BPIE in April 2023 as a researcher for Carbon and Energy in the Built Environment.

She recently finished the Blue Book Traineeship at DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission, where she worked on cluster 5 of Horizon Europe and various Green Deal files. She graduated from the Erasmus Mundus Master in Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (MESPOM) in summer 2022 where she focused her research on the connection between energy, urban transitions, and ecological economics. In her Bachelor in Technology and Liberal Arts and Science at University College Twente she specialised in resource management and circular economy.

Besides, Emily has worked in different grassroots movements while living in Scotland, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Sweden, often in the role of a facilitator or coordinator for political education activities on climate topics and interrelated crises.

In her free time, Emily is a youth climate advocate, previously at Generation Climate Europe or the European Forum Alpbach, and most recently at the European Youth Energy Network. She also sings, dances Lindy Hop, climbs, and enjoys discovering cultural places in the city.
