A few words about myself
I am a youth worker from my soul. I have worked in various youth work positions for over 20 years. Today I work as a senior lecturer in youth work at Humak, Europe's largest youth educator at HEI. At the same time, I work in a number of international projects that develop youth work, methods, education or research about youth work and young people.
I am a PhD student (Youth research) at the University of Tampere. The theme of my research is human rights education in youth work.
My interests are the development of young people's identity, informal education, inclusion, agency, active citizenship and youth work
