Carina joined the CSCP in 2010 and works as a senior project manager in the SIPS team.

Her fields of expertise are bioeconomy, circular cities and regions, sustainable food and agriculture as well as education for sustainable development. Currently she is leading the stakeholder engagement activities in the HOOP project, supporting cities and regions in Europe in improving their biowaste value chains. She is also coordinating the KochCup project on job orientation and sustainability in the cooking sector.
Carina is always keen on testing new, innovative workshop and dialogue formats that inspire the participants to become creative and think “outside-the-box”. As such, she has for instance been working with storytelling and theatre methods, movement exercises and sensual experiences (see, touch, taste, smell, hear). Carina believes in the power of personal hands-on experiences to change behaviour and mind-sets.
Prior to joining the SIPS team, Carina has been leading the CSCP Acquisition Team for 5 years. Thanks to this, she has vast experience in project development as well as strategic project planning and knowledge management.  During her university studies, Carina worked with Youth Action for Peace Germany, Friends of the Earth International and the Student Workforce for Sustainability and Development. In the latter, as a member of the executive board, she coordinated working groups on civic activism and sustainable technologies.
Carina holds a M.Sc. in Political Science – with specialisation in Global Environmental Governance – from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and a B.A. in European Studies from Universiteit Maastricht.
Carina Diedrich is a German national.
