About my workI have worked within the fields of education for sustainable development and education for sustainable consumption for many years locally, nationally and internationally. I have assisted in policy development, research and the development of educational methodologies and materials. As coordinator of a very large interdisciplinary network which has dealt with these topics for over 20 years, I have been able to keep abreast of much of what is happening in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America as well as the USA and Canada on these issues. As a resource person I feel I could help connect people to relevant activities and projects, and share updated resource information and data.
