I'm curious, creative, analytic, open-minded, perseverant, independent yet social, and always looking for opportunities to learn and develop. I'm an idealist and pragmatic as well. I believe much of the suffering in this world is human-made and could be avoided if people increase their awareness. This is also true for war. That's why I've spend more than a decade on learning about conflict resolution and peacebuilding, and the last four years also on teaching about this.
In just one year (sept. 2014-15) I managed to implement my own training program about nonviolence, for young people. I started totally from scratch, found the money and people to work with, as well as the participants, I designed the content of the program and delivered it with another colleague. The program includes nonviolent actions and campaigns, nonviolent communication, conflict resolution. I called it "Towards a Nonviolent World". Since then it has been improved and implemented five times, and in a few months I will publish a workshop manual that I co-authored with Veronica Pelicaric, published by Pace e Bene.
I will soon add more to my field of work experience. Or simply have a look at my LinkedIn profile. I have experience in facilitating workshops, and project management, in six different countries. I was born and raised in The Netherlands and currently I'm based in Greece, long-term.
