Constança Belchior
Sustainability explorer and facilitator
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Lisbon
THNK connection: THNKer , LIS Class 3

My work and mission in life are centred around the environment and broader sustainability, operating at the interface of science, policy and society.

To this day, I had been embedded in systems and organisations mostly focused on supporting policy making and implementation, both in Europe and abroad. My core activities entailed translating environmental data and trends into knowledge for sustainability, while participating in and facilitating collaboration processes to turn knowledge into action.

In 2017, I took a leap of faith to explore different possibility spaces for making this a world where we can all thrive within the means of the planet. I am a founding partner of One of Us – a sustainable brand for kids based in Portugal. I am co-creating SAGA – a co-design agency for sustainability based in Lisbon. And more recently, I have joined the THNK Lisbon family to become a Challenge facilitator.

What drives me hopeful into the future? The belief that we can collectively re-shape our current unsustainable world by a deeper understanding of why and how we engage with ourselves, with other people and with our planet. So, you´ll keep finding me exploring innovative approaches to this endeavour!
