Originally from a sumptuous little Italian town by the sea, Alessia envisioned to have a positive impact on society by creating a new movement. This is how she embarked on an adventure that changed the course of her life aka euforia which she co-founded! We are so lucky to have her astonishing skills in facilitation and program design in the team. Passionate about wellbeing, Alessia as Chief Empowerment Officer is responsible for creating a work environment that promotes the cohesion and development of the talents of all team members. This competence is key in her work with organisations such as UNITAR, the state of Geneva, hospice general, etc. We admire her for her perpetual quest of new challenges that make her grow and that allows organisations and individuals to work together in a sustainable world.
Severin is one of our dinosaurs who started his euforia “career” in 2010, only three years after euforia was founded. His facilitation abilities are one of a kind, he listens to a group with his heart and knows exactly what energy is needed at every single moment. This superpower allows him to touch gently and with no force at all the souls of people and organizations so they can expand a little bit their attitude towards a better world and needed changes inside themselves. He is decorated with an HSG master title in International Affairs and with a mind full of jokes, joie-de-vivre, and patience. It is a gift to have Severin in our team.
A few years ago Malika decided to come back from Mexico to join the euforia adventure. From there she brought back some funky latino dance moves. She also brought back her valuable partnership skills that she developed in Mexico working in the social entrepreneurial field, allowing euforia to grow through amazing collaborations. Malika is known and loved for her smile and her authentic kindness but watch out she is also fearless and her creative brain has no boundaries! She always comes up with new ambitious and meaningful project ideas and is not afraid to implement them on a big scale. With all her energy she is involved in our youth programs, corporate trainings, inclusion partnerships, budget management, and fundraising projects!
Sonia holds the keys not only to the office, the mailbox and the cellar but pretty much to all things related to our heartbeat Circle. I.e the circle responsible for all support functions within euforia. So in that sense she is the backbone of our team. She has to keep things tidy and structured in sea of overflowing creativity and funkiness. For that she must be strict and systematic, but always with a gentle, very human, touch. Let’s call her our Iron Lady with velvet gloves.Sonia embodies many of euforia values, and there’s an amazing story to illustrate her dedication and impact. Before joining us, she had a very comfortable position in a major fashion company but she felt the need to help contribute to improve the state of the world through her job. Hence she summoned the courage to quit and decided to look for her dream impact job. She chose us and we’re really happy about it. ;-)
Just discussing with Silene will give you the motivation to change the world and have the courage to endeavor the projects that make you closer to your dreams. Want to witness this super power? Just listen to one of her “Power has no gender” podcast she leads at euforia. Her experience in advocacy for human rights and disarmament in organisations (such as Amnesty international), in travelling the world, in gender topics and the millions of books she has read, makes her the perfect partner in crime for a project! After being a volunt’hero at euforia for several years in France, Silene made us the honor to come and boost the youth programmes in Switzerland. She is a talented facilitator and coordinator, which makes her the perfect person to bring imp!act, (r)evolution lab and other youth programmes to the next level. Her strength to empower others is magic and her special ingredients are a deep wish for an equal and sustainable world.
Bruno loves working independently and on many different projects - while also finishing his Master’s degree in Business Administration (sometimes we wonder how he can make it all work out in a 7 days week!). With a background in Marketing and working for Migros and the state of Geneva, he helps make euforia’s corporate services more known and irresistible. He strengthens and inspires our community in Geneva & Lausanne to create new synergies by connecting people. To give an example, Bruno has been the initiator of the evening events “ENSEMBLE” which we organize together with partners and which have become very popular in the region. He is always ready for a new challenge and also ready to challenge us to grow and develop in new ways through his constructive and critical vision of the world.
With her creativity and a love for detail, Clara makes us look sexy on screen and also offline whenever she organizes workshops in Zurich or co-creates events with our partners.
Combined with her project management skills she has the ability to ensure that our events go smoothly and are an enriching experience for all involved parties. What motivates Clara is her aspiration to contribute to more equal opportunities and reflection on social injustice. She is the reference person for our Zurich community and thanks to her slight coffee addiction, she will always make time for a cappuccino with you and welcome you with a smile ;)
