About me

Olena Miskun joined the ECF as the Senior Associate for Ukraine in 2022. Despite the ongoing war, Ukraine already needs a plan for how to rebuild itself sustainably after achieving victory.

Before joining the ECF, Olena worked in the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources as the head of the Department of Strategic Planning and International Relations. She coordinated Ukraine’s participation in the Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context (Espoo Convention).

Olena has an extensive NGO background of more than 15 years, working at the Center for Environmental Initiatives ‘Ecoaction,’ where she was involved in a campaign on industrial pollution and air quality.

For six years, Olena worked in the team of the CEE Bankwatch Network. She collaborated with activists in the Caucasus and Central Asia, as well as local communities in Ukraine.

In 2012, as a result of her campaign on the Kyiv-Chop road rehabilitation project in Ukraine by the EBRD, the bank prioritized road safety for further infrastructure projects.

Olena graduated from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. She likes dogs and skiing.
