Working with Guppi has been an absolute joy. She has gone above and beyond with supporting the Solberga Foundation with our grantmaking and climate justice strategy in the UK. Guppi has a deep knowledge of climate justice, public health, racial justice and social movements and has taught me so much. Her sharp and critical analysis of the philanthropic sector has helped push our foundation to be more accountable and support transformative work. She has been incredibly generous with her connections, always being thoughtful about ways to move everyone forward. She has taught me so much and I feel grateful for the time to think and strategise with her.
Setting up a new initiative to connect progressive activists across Europe was a hugely daunting and ambitious task that Guppi was able to meet with humility, humanity, tenacity, and hard work. There is still a great deal of work to do to build progressive movement power in Europe, but the foundations and deep connections that Guppi has helped to foster will be critical in moving things forward. Working with, learning from, and thinking about strategy with Guppi has been a sheer pleasure.
