“What I most appreciate about working at Frank is the variety. One day you might be writing an amendment to the Energy Act, the next heading to a meeting at the Senate, a little later recording an interview for the radio, or on another day spending hours considering the content of an environmental impact assessment, parts of which are written only in Polish. So it probably isn’t for everybody, but I really enjoy the dynamics and the possibility of pushing the boundaries of my own comfort zone a little further every day.”
Eliška has been part of the Responsible Energy team since 2018. She has focused for some time on strategic litigation, integrated prevention (IPPC), community energy, and the transformation of the Czech energy sector towards clean, low-emissions energy sources. Since 2022 she has led the Community Energy Union legislative group, established by the purpose-driven Frank Bold group in cooperation with Friends of the Earth Czech Republic.
She gained her valuable experience in environmental law and energy law in, inter alia, academia as a research assistant at Charles University in Prague, at a study stay at the University of Oslo, and in the non-governmental non-profit sector.
In her spare time she enjoys writing fiction, heads the Poustevna community centre, experiments in the kitchen, and takes long hikes with her husband František and terrier Jack.
