Sharing knowledge


I have shared my knowledge & experience, inspired people, taught and learned from others, on numerous international occasions, ranging from practical workshops to large audience presentations.

Some of the topics that I address are:

  • How to design pedagogically rich play spaces, without catalogue play equipment?
  • How to involve the community in their resilient and child-friendly environment?
  • How to integrate climatological challenges in public play spaces?
  • How to design meaningful participation processes, from an integrated perspective?
  • How to design playspaces enhancing 21st century skills?

I have led numerous workshops, given lectures, trainings and presentations in Spain, South-Korea, Croatia, Belgium, Egypt, The Netherlands,and Rwanda.

Here is what I offer

  • In-depth knowledge
  • practical applicable methods
  • inspiration
  • interactive and hands-on lectures
  • contagious enthousiasm.
