Shall we?

We are implementing this project troughout 7 different countries!

Quality Culture

Laura Salvago de Gennaro

I’m Laura and I work as EU project manager for Quality Culture, being responsible for the planning and implementation of activities linked to empowerment and social inclusion.

I’m very passionate about environmental sustainability and particularly committed to awareness raising among young people.

Outside of work, I’m a lover of DIY, multi-instrumentalist and passionate mountaineer and climber – which perfectly combines with my role in the Italian scouting association.

Meath Partnership

Jennifer Smith

My name is Jennifer and I am the Youth Engagement Projects Officer at Meath Partnership, who are the lead partner on the YOU.STAND.OUT project. Having worked in the education sector for a number of years, I am passionate about helping our young people to realise their true potential by ensuring their access to new and existing opportunities in both education and employment, particularly in rural areas of Ireland.  

When I am not working on our valuable and innovative youth projects, I try to keep fit through yoga, tennis, and long walks with my dog. I am an animal lover and aim to support local animal welfare charities as much as possible. As a former chef and culinary arts teacher, I love to cook for my family and friends. I hope to visit Iceland to see the Aurora Borealis (northern lights) and take a trip to Rio de Janeiro to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Christ the Redeemer, sometime in the near future.

Stephanie Kirwan

Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am the Senior Education and Training Manager in Meath Partnership in Ireland. I have been working in the area of Global Citizenship Education for 12 years and feel very passionate about the role that young people have in creating a better, safer and fairer world.   

Outside of work (which I do love – love your job and you will never feel like you’re working), I really love travelling both in Ireland and further afield, I love to socialize over food from around the world and I love to read books from authors who live in countries I have never visited. As you can see I am very curious and love anthropology (the study of cultures). Most importantly, I love animals and Matcha lattes – you will generally find me walking my dog Alfie with a Matcha latte in hand!  

NGO Nest Berlin

Christian Porstner

Word up but it’s all shapes & forms, like spinning a black circle… What you cannot talk about you still might dance to. No road map, just a movement. So while spending half of my life in the cycles of European project management I need to find some detour through the other half… like music, stories and desert island trips.

Center for
Social Innovation

Constantinos Hadjipolycarpou

Hello, I am Constantinos Hadjipolycarpou and I am a project manager at the Center for Social Innovation in Cyprus, working on related projects with entrepreneurship, sustainability, youth entrepreneurs etc., trying to improve the skills, knowledge, and opportunities of our societies for a better future. Proudly I am a member of the Cyprus Quality Association.

Outside the work, I am an online radio producer, an upcoming podcaster and last but not least a passionate musician, playing and composing my own music. Yes, you can hear it by searching my name on Youtube (Yes, I disseminate myself =) ). The combination of the Project Manager role and a musician could create a full-time creative person, yes that’s me.
