Nijat Guliyev is a recent junior research fellow at EPF/CRRC Azerbaijan with almost 3 years of experience working alongside different local and international organisations that are fighting for social injustice and the development of a sustainable and democratic society. Nijat graduated from the Baku Engineering University in 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. In 2018 he was the local finalist of the Global UGRAD Educational and Cultural Exchange Program. Working tight with local and international “green” communities at organisations like “Youth and Environment” Europe, Slow Food, Oikos Baku and Cooperation and Development Network Eastern Europe gave him a chance to form a Green vision to strive for a world in which human rights are upheld, the genders are truly equal, and the environment is protected. Nijat believes that the well-being of people and the flourishing of the environment are closely linked and that one cannot defend the interests of one while forgetting the other.
