Jana moved to the UK in 2017 and is originally from Prague, Czech Republic.
Her background is in 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.

Jana is the leader for a Green Impact project that seeks to encourage people in Sheffield to grow their own food. SHEFF-Yield is aimed at a large audience via a series of webinars, blog articles and online resources. Find out more about SHEFF-Yield on their website.
And Jana is in charge of another ambitious Green Impact project. This new project aims to develop a University-wide online platform where students and staff can sell and swap things they no longer need. It is hoped the platform will go live in spring/summer 2021
