Mae Ocampo is an activist who has had more than 25 years of experience in very diverse environments, contexts and cultures working on environmental justice and human rights. Mae worked for Friends of the Earth International in senior management for 17 years focusing on the federation’s strategic development and direction for the programme and membership areas. She also worked for Action Aid International (Brussels office) as the Management and Accountability Coordinator and as the Senior Manager for the Programmes Department at Fairfood International. In the past 7 years, Mae worked on sustainability issues, human rights violations in Syria and dedicated time around the protection of immigrants and refugees in Europe.

Being in senior management for many years, Mae played key roles in the articulation of organisations vision, mission and core values, in facilitating and leading the development of sound strategic plans and in developing internal mechanisms (including building and coordinating internal financial mechanisms and resource mobilization funds) to ensure capacity building and support for members and for the organisation as a whole. Mae has led the sustainable growth and expansion plans which ensured that structures, members, staff and activities are supported and operate sustainably as priority targets are achieved.

In her free time, apart from reading books (books!! books!!) and binging on films Mae writes poetry and composes songs, tries her fingers on the ukelele, cooks for her community of activists and artists, sits on the WG Fund commission to decide on small projects/grants for local activists and resistance movements within the Netherlands, volunteers at refugee centres and plays with the Rhythms of Resistance samba band.
