Biography

“How do we cope with the demands of a modern (un)sustainable life? Can I really contribute to addressing the climate crisis? How can we responsibly initiate innovation to address matters of concern, when we all think so differently?”

These questions, posed by university students, are an example of the questions we as young or less-young learners are confronted with. I am dedicated to exploring educational and learning approaches that empower learners to deepen this type of questions and respond to today’s sustainability challenges. By drawing from the dilemmas people face and from the ecological needs of the earth, my research focuses on innovative educational design, pedagogies of care, and deep learning processes that transform people and practices and that enable learners to be responsible agents in our complex world. My research studies take place in the context of (higher) education, community setting or society at large, and often at their crossroads.
