I am currently studying Soils and Global Change at Aarhus and Ghent University. I hope to put this knowledge and grounding in the science of the soil towards a career and work in soil and climate communication, especially using creative and unexpected ways to tell stories. I am a co-founder and current member of RE-PEAT, an organisation that works to bring more awareness and appreciation to peatlands. As peatlands are an ecosystem that has frequently been considered as a wasteland, this has consistently meant we need innovative and creative ways to engage people. One of our major ways of engaging people is to use imagination, and to use peatlands as a lens through which we can explore other societal issues and topics, such as land ownership, climate (in)justice and deep time.
