Simon Steen Hansen is a 20 years old volunteer from Denmark. Having originally grown up in the beautiful island landscape of Southern Funen, he now lives in the charming capital of Copenhagen.
Simon is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in International Business and Politics from Copenhagen Business School. His passion for the study program lies in the interaction between businesses and political institutions, and how it might be possible to improve these relationships. Another passion is the political, economic and social development in South- and South-East Asian countries. This makes participating in a movement like Earth5R, very important to him.
During his stint at Earth5R India, Simon worked on several parts of the marketing strategies and documentary building. This included conducting meetings with corporate partners, participating in slum visits, doing interviews, filming events, and editing documentaries.
From June 2017, Simon starts working on setting up Earth5R in Copenhagen, Denmark. This includes finding partnerships with like-minded student organizations, preparing events and setting up future volunteer exchange programs.
