  • What gives you hope?
    A lot: People, communities and specifically children as well as nature.
    Sometimes it is the big actions and movements, but often also the small moments, gestures, and encounters.

  • How does change happen?
    Change happens by people taking an action. And often only with a lot of perseverance.

  • What inspires you?
    People and communicating with them, art in all its variety and sometimes also silence.
