Global Environmental Democracy Project

The Global Environmental Democracy Project prepares students to be advocates for global change by exploring the principles of public participation, freedom of information, and access to the judicial system and how those principles play out when confronting international environmental problems.

GEDP Fellows 2022-2023

Georgia Christopoulos - Bowerman Fellow

Gaby Penvenne - Bowerman Fellow 

Gaby grew up on the central coast of California swimming, surfing, kayaking and hiking. Exploring open spaces across the western United States and Alaska solidified Gaby’s love and appreciation for the environment. She attended the University of Denver for one year before transferring to UC Santa Barbara, where she competed as an NCAA swimmer and earned a BS in Environmental Studies. While studying at UCSB, Gaby became fascinated with the potential of interdisciplinary collaboration to address environmental problems affecting people and the land on which they live. During her first year at the University of Oregon, Gaby worked as a 1L Fellow with the Global Environmental Democracy Project. Following a summer legal clerkship with the Environmental Defense Center in Santa Barbara, CA, she is thrilled to continue her work with the ENR Center, and to expand her involvement in UO Environmental Law programs as a member of the Land Air Water board.
