About this Speaker
With a background in sustainable development, Klara started a small organic and fairly traded skincare business to support small farmers and carry out her passion for healing with nature. She also started a food security project in Kenya to address food insecurity in a sustainable and community-empowering way. However, in the face of our climate crisis and obscene economic injustice, Klara realized that change needed to start by opening up the minds of our younger generation. The Green World Project is a reflection of her other passion to share her expertise in socio-economic development, herbal medicine, food insecurity, permaculture, and holistic living with children—but in a fun, interactive and thought-provoking way. Her years of experience working with children has earned her the magical ability to instill in them a love for nature that grows into love and respect for all life forms. She wants to use her gift to guide Gen. Z to think critically, compassionately, and proactively about humanity, our environment, and the political-economy that affects us all. Instilling this knowledge at such an impressionable age gives her much hope that they will become eco-conscious and thoughtful individuals who will somehow, in their own unique way, design for change.
