Corinne Grässle
Project Manager
My pronouns are: she/her/hers
I am based in: Zurich

I was born and raised in Zurich, Switzerland. This gave me a little bit of everything in a very small place: multicultural, international cities but also valleys surrounded by magnificent mountains where time seems to stand still, a unique form of direct democracy and - not to be missed - direct train connections to many of Europe’s major cities.

For as long as I can remember, I have been motivated and driven by the vision of a Protopian world where more and more people can live a good life on a thriving planet. As a child, I collected money to save the rainforest. Later on, I studied political sciences and sustainable international development. My professional career got directed towards this goal too when I started working as a climate expert and campaigner for WWF Switzerland and later for a political party. Currently, I am a project manager at an impact-oriented private fund supporting projects that work towards a sustainable society.

I‘m a passionate (train-)traveller and photographer and I usually start my days with yoga. In my work as well as in my personal life, I value curiosity, honesty, trust, reliability and a good sense of humor.
