Rianne C ten Veen

Senior Facilitator; Facilitation Fellow, Spring 2019

Country of origin: The Netherlands

Date started with Soliya: 2015 

Education and field of work: A cocktail of sustainable development, faith, ethics, law, politics, and disaster management. The more interdisciplinary, the more I like it.

What about Soliya inspires/motivates you to be involved? The bright light in an often dark world of populism/ nationalism/ ‘othering', the positive approach to diversity, seeing the world the way astronauts see it, and doing something concrete and constructive about this (the online dialogue opportunities!).

What can you be found doing when not working/facilitating/training? Hopefully turning my garden into a food forest (though I am also quite addicted to being online).

Favorite food: Salad, with as many veggie ingredients as it’s possible to squeeze in a bowl.
