I want to make a positive and lasting contribution to human society. I want to contribute in making conditions of life for our society as a whole much better tomorrow. I come from a background in social science and communication, and got intereset in sustainabilty as a consequence of my hungry curiosity and passion for positive contributions. Since 2007 I live in Sweden (besides an 8months time in betweeen, where I lived in London and happened to run into this movie) As by now I am working as programme assistant at the masters in Strategic Leadership Towards Sustainability and I am really enjoying it. I see that empowering the leaders of the future society is a great leverage point in a transition towards a sustainable society.
