Shira joined Beyond Fossil Fuels as a Program Lead in November 2023, connecting various campaigning areas that involve locally relevant actors such as Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and municipalities, iconic renewable energy zones, and traditional efforts against coal and gas locations. She previously worked at Greenpeace International, addressing the structural causes of the climate and biodiversity crises in areas such as trade, corporate accountability, and shifting political-economic power.

Before that, she was in Greenpeace’s European Unit in Brussels, working on trade policy that prioritised people and the planet over corporate interests. With a background in human rights and access to justice, she has worked in various countries around the world and speaks English, German, French, and Spanish.
