Ana Jovanovic


Hey there!
My name is Ana and I’ve been active in the field of youth since I was very young.I started to facilitate trainings from 2006 and I can freely say that for me it is more pleasure than work. I like to work with creative, funny and inspiring people. Last few years I passed several training programs with Google, Cambridge and Corporate training institutes. I am currently working and living in Malaysia where I am running Solar Program in a social enterprise called SOLS Energy.

Educational pathway

I graduated high school in year 2003 in social sciences in Sixth Belgrade Gymnasium. After that I entered university where I started to study tourism and environmental protection and I graduated bachelor level. I prolonged my studies a bit because I decided to do EVS mean while. I did my EVS in Slovenia in Organization MOZAIK that was mainly working with children and youth from minority groups (Roma community, immigrants and refugees). I stayed in in Slovenia longer than I planned by continuing to work for organization Mozaik for additional year where I was involved in UNHCR and INTI program of protection of human rights. My experience working in Slovenia helped me a lot to learn the language, live in multicultural surrounding and learn a lot about project management, and community development in general. After I came back to Serbia I finished my studies and founded an NGO that is working on different educational and environmental programs, as well programs of mobility, solidarity. My further non formal education brought me to the path of becoming international trainer for intercultural learning, environment and project management. Those three most common topics that I'm involved in also connected my organization with the local government with which I am organizing lines of social and educational activities for local youth (empowerment of volunteerism on local level, mobility and activism of young people, , intercultural and international exchanges and different environmental actions).
I finished my Masters in 2015 and I specialized for Environmental Engineering and occupational health. Environment protection was always my passion and I organized and contributed to the line of trainings with this specific focus.
I have took part in many international training as participants, and I'm still eager to learn a lot by taking new opportunities for training and getting new trainer skills. I am currently living and working in Malaysia on a position of Chief Operating Officer of a Social Enterprise SOLS Energy where I am supporting development and awareness about Solar industry in South East Asia.
