I now have more than 20 years of experience in facilitating regional and local participatory sustainability initiatives in more than 60 communities, with NGOs, business, universities and local governments. I started a PhD in Climate Change and Sustainable Development Policies in 2016 at the University of Lisbon. I am dedicating to climate participatory action research, exploring synergies between community-led initiatives and local governments, working at the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes and supporting the Transition movement. I am a Climate Reality Leader trained by Al Gore. Most significant projects at the moment are Municipalities in Transition and the Awakened Life Project. Member of Coopérnico (energy cooperative) and the Lisbon cohort of The Regenerative Practitioner Series.
