Nynke Hack introduces herself
Four questions for Nynke Hack, who joined corsus as a consultant in May 2021:
What did you do before you came to corsus?
I was born in Hamburg and lived in Norway for a total of six years, where I completed my degree in Community Planning and Cultural Understanding. During my studies, I also spent a semester abroad in Tours, France. At the end of 2020, I decided to go back to Hamburg and apply for a job here where I can contribute my professional expertise in the best possible way.
corsus consults on sustainability. What do you associate with sustainability?
Sustainability has always been an important topic for me. For me, sustainability means using resources consciously and respectfully, so that the next generations can have a good life as well. Other aspects that are very important to me personally are fair pay and good working conditions for everyone along the supply chain.
Is there an issue that is particularly close to your heart?
I would like to help ensure that local authorities and other key players do their utmost to operate sustainably and drive development in this direction. It is particularly important to me that social inequalities are addressed more, both in terms of poverty and equality.
What are you working on at corsus right now?
At the moment, I’m advising municipalities in Schleswig-Holstein on how to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the ‘Global Nachhaltige Kommune’ project. I am also working on sustainable procurement in municipalities and am currently researching stakeholders and backgrounds for a nature conservation project that we are supporting. The work is very diverse and interesting, which means I have already learned a lot that I can apply in consulting. The very good exchange in the team is also important for me!
