In addition, she will establish recommendations to improve the attractiveness of green jobs based on the research. The "Green Jobs" project also supports the Forest Europe Liaison Unit Bonn. Ms. da Silva completed her master’s degree in Wood Economics at the University of Hamburg with a focus on wood‑flow analysis. Before that she concluded her bachelor studies in Wood Industrial Engineering at the Universidade Federal do Parana in 2014.
