I am a social anthropologist and have researched the impacts of EU agriculture policy on the lives of subsistence farmers in Romania. My follow-up research in Romania brought to the fore environmental questions which eventually led me to permaculture in 2009. It was quite life-changing.
In my research I have always combined activism and social science, and I have been very interested in deliberative paths for desired social change, the interconnections between ecosystems and social systems, and subsistence farming strategies.
In 2010, I moved back to Luxembourg and set up CELL, the Centre for Ecological Learning Luxembourg, a laboratory for transitional and permaculture ethics and practice. The idea was to make Luxembourg a Transition bioregion, and I am working towards that with my CELL team.
At the beginning of 2011, I registered for my Permaculture Diploma, and will do steady, slow work on this in the areas of CELL design, ecorenovation design and land-based designs for myself and other people.
I am interested in meeting people in the area of Luxembourg/Germany/France with similar interests in self-sufficient living, awareness raising strategies and transition towns, and LEARNING, exchanging, enjoying! :)
