Katerina Prokopiou

Amani Regional Community Leader MENA

Katerina is a Mechanical Engineer with over 5 years experience in Product Development and Innovation within the automotive and medical device industries in the UK. Her experience spans ideation, prototyping and testing, coordinating teams and project management.

Katerina has found her passion and calling in the beekeeping world which she was introduced to at a young age. Her love is demonstrated through her volunteering work as a presenter, trainer and communications manager for the Warwickshire Beekeepers' Association. She is a volunteer community coordinator for a project with Bees Abroad, a charity empowering Women in underprivileged communities through training them to be beekeepers for life.

As a firm believer of a world where everyone should have the choice to learn from and be one with nature, Katerina wishes to use her skills as a platform for both Education in Sustainability and Empowerment. She hopes that being part of the Amani Institute’s program will give her the opportunity to learn by doing and to build a strong network of like-minded changemakers
