I have been working as trainer in the areas above for a few years, especially in global education and capacity building. Environment is also an area I am working on for the past years but not so much as a separate element, but mainly as part of sustainability/ sustainable development. However, due to personal interest I am doing much reading on environmental issues, so it has helped me develop solid knowledge on quite a few issues, around climate change and environmental sustainability in general.
Further, I have worked as trainer in many of the other fields mentioned above, such as youth policy, youth empowerment and participation, democracy, politics, human rights and social inclusion, intercultural learning, communication (non-violent communication, activism, campaigning, advocacy etc). The three main areas selected are the ones I have been mainly providing trainings, either through the organisation I am working with (Future Worlds Center), or with other NGOs and CSOs I am collaborating. This also includes several trainings for educators/teachers, young people, students, as well as civil society professionals.
