Jana Green is our Centre Administrator. She moved to the UK in 2017 and is originally from the Czech Republic.
Her background is in visual arts and film – she holds a Master’s Degree in Arts Management. In the past she worked for a cinema network, an ethnographic museum and a contemporary art gallery.
Jana is new to sustainability but very passionate about climate change issues. She is eager to learn as much as possible about sustainability through her work at the Grantham Centre. And she is keen to assist the amazingly talented Grantham Scholars in creating a better future for all of us (and saving the world)!
Her role at the Grantham Centre involves supporting the Grantham Scholars, organising internal events and administrative duties. She also helps Deborah Beck plan the students’ training.

My experience with Green Impact by Jana Green.
In 2022, Deborah Beck, Jana Green and Claire Moran were all nominated for ‘brilliant doctoral supervision’ in the Think Ahead scheme, which aims to recognise and celebrate people who support PhDs. In 2023, Jana also got nominated together with Deborah for the university’s Education Awards.
Jana also attended a talk of our funder, Jeremy Grantham, at Oxford University in April 2022. You can read about this experience here.
