Zeina has more than 25 years of experience in creative campaigning, communications, political and policy development, organising and mobilising on a global level. She has a wide experience of running campaigns and policy change in the global south with a focus on China, India, Mexico, North Africa and primarily Turkey and the Middle East.
She is an activist by heart and has worked on social issues ranging from electoral laws and global environmental policies to dealing with war aftermath. She has helped set-up organisations and worked on organisational structures and campaigns around the world.
For more than 15 years, she shaped Greenpeace’s global strategies and led many of its creative campaigns challenging global corporations within the electronics and textile industries, as well as the global food companies.

She is also the board chair of EKO (previously SumofUs), a global organisation working to curb the power of corporations.
Zeina has a notorious laugh that can raise a smile on a rainy day in Amsterdam, where she currently lives.
