I am a feminist and an environmentalist, using feminist methods for on-going self-transformation. My current paid job is with the Seattle to Brussels Network, and has a focus on trade justice. Up to 2014 my professional life usually involved working in the intersection of international development and gender/women’s rights (mainly in Central America and Middle East).
I am active in various social, economic and environmental justice collectives in Europe including European Greens in London, Women in Development Europe, European Alternatives, and Ecoar Global. In addition to the above, I am very interested in eroding the economic growth dogma and thus enthusiastic about the idea of degrowth – I’d like to help sensitize people about a new lifestyle that doesn’t revolve around consumerism.
