Jelle Dijkstra


"My passion lies in the combination of sustainability issues and advocacy"

Jelle has been working at Publyon since 2021. As a member of the Sustainability team, Jelle mainly supports clients committed to a cleaner and fairer world. Jelle wants to contribute to this by building bridges between organisations and the government.

He first encountered advocacy during an internship for an environmental organisation in Amsterdam. Here he was responsible for coordinating different types of content and supporting campaign leaders in various projects. Since then, he has always retained his interest in sustainability issues and advocacy.

Besides his work at Publyon, Jelle is active as a board member of Jong-BVPA, organising events to introduce young public affairs professionals to the field in an accessible way.

Jelle holds a master’s degree in Political Science and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Leiden University. During his bachelor programme, Jelle spent a semester studying in the United States, where he combined his interest in sustainability issues with political communication subjects.

In his spare time, Jelle can be found on the squash court or in the kitchen.
