What are the main areas of Sustainability you are interested in
The mentality of Separation that seems to underpin our culture. Thus I am very interested in how to create environments that allow people the time and space to be in relationship with themselves, others and the earth.
Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am deeply passionate and interested in the interwoven threads of social justice and environmental sustainability and the learning environments that allow people to engage with them constructively. Following time volunteering at Corrymeela Peace and Reconciliation Centre and travels in Africa, I returned to University to study Sport and Exercise Science where I focused on the use of Adventure Learning for group development and conflict management.
I now works for TIDES Training, a conflict management training and consultancy organisation, and co-coordinate the 7th Generation Project.
What is your current job (and organization) and/or where and what field are you studying?
