Anthony Mejías Villalobos

My name is Anthony Mejías Villalobos. I graduated from the School of Economic and Social Planning of the Faculty of Social Sciences of the National University of Costa Rica and a  student at the School of Administration of the National University. For 12 years I have participated in various voluntary processes, such as to send food to the affected by the earthquake in Cinchona and Nicoya, Costa Rica, or those affected by Hurricane Otto and tropical storm Irma. I have also participated in various projects such as the Learning Services which offered training on the importance of water quality. I am also part of the Youth Network for Water, which connected me to the Earth Charter. In the second half of 2018, I collaborated with another Earth Charter Young Leader in the development of a course on Education for Sustainable Development Youth Leadership Training with the Center for General Studies of the University National. I participated in several volunteering opportunities with UNA Ventura during 2018 and a volunteer program in EPI Pacuare, Costa Rica in that same year. I’m an activist, professional, lover of the environment and sustainable local developments.

I am currently the executive director and social promoter of the Disability without Barriers Foundation.
