Speaking for dissemination of the learning from practice, research and teaching as well as for expressing views on the current social-ecological surroundings is a passion and an integral part of my being. Speaking at different platforms such as invited lectures, conferences, seminars, workshops, public gatherings, etc. brings me to places and helps combine my travel interest. It also helps connecting with people across disciplines, regions, cultures and age groups.
