About me

After several years of experience as a youth worker active on fields of environmental and global education I organize and lead different workshops and projects focused on a holistic approach towards sustainability (integrating the social, ecological, economic and cultural aspects) and community building art methodologies in my home country, Hungary and internationally. After attending the Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) organized by the Global Ecovillage Network and Gaia Education, completing the Dragon Dreaming training for trainers course and an inspirational meeting with eco-philosopher Joanna Macy I have dedicated myself to share my knowledge and experience with motivated individuals and groups. As a co-founder of Pandora Association I facilitate Dragon Dreaming and The Work That Reconnects and organize different workshops, trainings and camps on holistic sustainability and nature connection. At the moment I am also writing a book on the topic and completing a training course on wilderness pedagogy.

Focus points

Training and facilitation on the following areas:

– holistic sustainability

– community-based art methodologies (mural painting, folk dancing, movement, dance and creative expression)

– different non-formal educational methodologies

– Dragon Dreaming

– The Work That Reconnects

– nature-based process work

Coordination of the 2nd Danube Region Communities Convergence

Miscellaneous

“it‘s 3:23 in the morning
and I‘m awake
because my great great grandchildren
won‘t let me sleep
my great great grandchildren
ask me in dreams
what did you do while the planet
was plundered?
what did you do when the earth
was unraveling?
surely you did something
when the seasons started failing?
as the mammals, reptiles, birds
were all dying?
did you fill the streets with protest
when democracy was stolen?
what did you do
once
you
knew?…”
(Drew Bellinger, hieroglyphic
