Peter Boldt – Program Coordinator
Growing up in Lək̓ʷəŋən territory, Peter feels blessed to call this beautiful Pacific coast his home. He is inspired by his travels and the people and friends he has met from other countries. As a field school student in 2013, he had the opportunity to participate in local development initiatives through service learning in Uganda. This trip marked the beginning of his passion for advocacy, human rights and sustainable development.
Before completing his Master’s degree in International Development Studies, Peter was an elementary school teacher abroad for two years. In his work with PPP, he looks forward to continued learning about Indigenous knowledge exchange, community resilience and South Pacific development issues.
Agnieszka Zuchora – Partnerships and Development Coordinator
Agnieszka (Aggie) is a Greek born, Polish immigrant who grew up on Kwikwetlem territory. Her passion lies in traditional healing practices, environmental protection and working directly with the community. This led her to pursue a Master of Environment in Melbourne, Australia.
Through her degree, she focused on adaptation to climate change as well as the political ecology of development and examining western normative assumptions about gender and gender empowerment. Later, she volunteered in Israel learning about sustainable agricultural practices, then in Greece working with youth and women asylum seekers. She looks forward to furthering her understanding of Indigenous experiences and what it means to be an active ally across the Pacific.
