Ashoka Fellow
This description of Ewa Romanow's work was prepared when Ewa Romanow was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
In communities where environmental protection has rarely been a priority, Ewa Romanow stimulates ecological consciousness and action by bringing their immediate economic benefits to light. Working in small towns and rural areas throughout Poland, she helps people learn to increase income and social capital without sacrificing the health of their surroundings. She brings rural residents together with business leaders, scientists, and government authorities to design and implement initiatives that forge a powerful balance between sustainability and profit.
