|Country of Residence|
|City, Town or Village of Residence|
I have lived in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and the USA and briefly in France and Syria. The languages I speak in the course of my work are English, Dutch, German and French. I represent the Association of (World Citizens) and the Institute for (Planetary Synthesis) and coordinate (Commons Action for the United Nations) and the NGO Major Group (Commons Cluster) at the (United Nations) (UN). Here I have also co-founded and Chaired the NGO (Task Force on Financing). I have been associated with the UN since 1969.
|Description of Organization (if any)||
(Commons Action for the United Nations) consists of individuals and the NGO Major Group Commons Cluster at the UN consists of individuals representing ECOSOC accredited NGOs at the UN. They both advocate at the UN a commons-based economy at all levels and a global community centred on the well-being of all people and nature. The All-Win Network was founded by me and Pim van Monsjou to implement the all-win principle in all aspects of our lives. The (All-Win Principle) states that since all are interdependent with one another and nature, it is in everyone’s best interest to work for a world that works for all.
|What I have to share||
Help with (advocacy at the United Nations) for all those who are dedicated to the (All-Win Principle) which states:
The vision that inspires me is that of (a world that works for all) people and nature as a whole. I am fascinated by the (connections between people, nature and the rest of the Universe) that move us in that direction spiritually, psychologically, educationally, and structurally and the science that is showing us holistic ways of getting there. I have a PHD in Psychology with a specialization in (Transpersonal (spiritual) Psychology) and an MA in German.
