Lorena Palacios graduated from the UCLA Certificate Program in Global Sustainability. Before joining CivicSpark, she was working with school districts in Los Angeles County to help them develop their Sustainability Action Plan. Interested in gaining experience with local governments and organizations working towards the implementation of climate change and adaptation projects, Lorena thought a good way to do it was by diving into one of these structures and serve her country of adoption while continuing to learn and gain a different perspective. Lorena practiced Environmental Law in Mexico, her country of origin, and has a Masters in European Studies. She has lived in Italy and Belgium where she got involved in programs and projects on International Cooperation for Industrial Development and Climate Change.
