Ko Noel Yeldos ahau
Noel was born in Kerala, a state on the south-western coast of India, and moved to Aotearoa as a child. Noel is passionate about climate justice, decolonisation, and ensuring marginalised voices are given a platform to share their stories and lived experiences. Noel got his first taste of campaigning with Fossil Free UoA, a movement pushing the university to divest funds from the fossil fuel industry.
Outside of work Noel enjoys the outdoors, board games, and reading about primates.
For Noel, working at For Purpose is about contributing to the ecosystem of people doing the mahi to make our world a better place.
