Lisa Graaf

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart - Jane Austen

As Senior Project Manager in the BPIE Berlin Office, Lisa will be involved in both, BPIE’s research activities as well as in the outreach to German stakeholders.

Lisa has been working on concepts and policies supporting the transformations towards climate neutrality and sustainability for more than a decade now.

Before joining BPIE, she conducted research projects at the Environmental Policy Research Centre, Freie Universität Berlin (2011 – 2019). Over six years, she consulted the strategy process and supported the stakeholder engagement of the German National Resource Efficiency Program (ProgRess). Besides that, she had also extensively worked on the dynamics of transformation processes, as well as environmental strategy processes – translating the findings into concrete guidelines or recommendations for policy makers, in particular for the German Ministry of the Environment.

From mid-2019 onwards, Lisa coordinated projects at the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy (Berlin Office), with a focus on sustainable resource use in cities of the Global South. For her academic endeavors, she also held a position at Habitat Unit at the Technical University of Berlin, coordinating capacity building and academic writing under the Urban Change Maker project.

Lisa holds a Diploma in Political Science and a B.A. in Communication Science. She had the opportunity to spend time abroad in Peru (voluntary service), Spain (Erasmus) and, thanks to a DAAD Scholarship, at The Resource and Energy Institute in India.

In her spare time, Lisa enjoys rock climbing, to discover adventures with her family in everyday life and beyond, and to contribute to neighbourhood initiatives to increase the liveability of the city.
