Personal bio

Ana Golja is a promoter of an environment-friendly lifestyle and sustainable tourism. She met with European projects in various environmental protection and museum organizations, where she combined her two passions – culture and environmental protection. As archaeologist, curator, interpreter, project manager and manager of educational activities, she brought them closer to many individuals and groups. Today, the number of passions has increased to three – traveling and working on zero waste tourism in hotels, restaurants and events, where she helps organizers reduce the amount of waste. In her free time she loves to walk in nature with her dog, or cuddle with her cats and a good book in her hands.
