My work in sustainable rural development and food production in
developing countries and in Europe, made me an expert in transition
processes and participatory agenda-setting, integrated landscape
development, soil ecology and circular agriculture. My greatest examples
are innovative farmers (-organisations) that practice what I call
circular agriculture or agroecology. To me that is The New Normal.

Anne studied various literatures at various universities, then focused on multiculturalism and postcolonialism for her PhD and teaching, finally engaging in inter- and transdisciplinarity in the context of research and education for sustainable development (ESD). As Head of the ESD cluster at the Centre for Development and Environment of the University of Bern, Switzerland (newly retired), she strove to adapt to the need for “sustainable education”, including transformative learning; and to enable students to be both academics and engaged citizens.
The connection between language and everyday life is essential to Anne: how do we shape and love our world with words? How can we unlearn domination through words and let them become live connectors between us?
