Amélie Uhrig joins Point Advisory’s Melbourne office

Point Advisory is pleased to welcome Amélie to our growing team in Melbourne! She has recently joined as Consultant in our Climate Change and Environment team.

Amélie holds a Master in Environmental Sciences, focusing on climate policies and politics as well as the role of forests in climate mitigation. As part of her studies, she conducted a qualitative social research project on community-based forest management and REDD+ in Indonesia. She also holds a Bachelor in Geography and Ethnology. This academic background makes her an interdisciplinary thinker, positioning herself in-between the natural and social sciences.

Amélie is particularly interested in power relations between stakeholders in a natural resource management context and is passionate about community-based strategies and approaches.

Prior to joining Point Advisory, Amelie worked as consultant for international development agency GIZ GmbH in Indonesia, where she was working in a project on climate and environmental awareness. As part of her role, she travelled to high schools and educational facilities throughout Java, facilitating educational activities and workshops to support climate action and improve climate literacy.

Amélie is an advocate for environmental/climate education and how complex scientific topics can be made digestible for a non-technical audience. She has been volunteering with the ICLEI Oceania Young Writers Network that aims to empower students and young researchers to become impactful science communicators.

Outside of work, Amélie enjoys art and sculpture exhibitions, music concerts and outdoor adventures.
