 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My Ph.D. is in Environmental Communication and Interpretation in Protected areas such as Ramsar

I am particularly interested in incorporating interpretive and educational strategies as an effective means of encouraging public participation in decision making and facilitating collaborative community participation in sustainable tourism development. Throughout my education, I have gained experience by investigating the variables and/or indicators that determine, affect and explain the process of acquiring environmental awareness as well as the inclination and participation competence of citizens in the process of making significant environmental decisions that could play an essential role in becoming environmentally knowledgeable and, above all, skilled and dedicated to working individually and collectively toward achieving a dynamic equilibrium between quality of life and quality of the environment. These varied experiences have furthered my interests in gaining greater knowledge and training in prompting visitors environmental literacy through environmental interpretation and education programs.

Also of particular relevance is my work at the Research Centre of Environmental Communication and
Education, where I participated in several research projects studying the environmental profile of
citizens as well as of educators in various educational settings (e.g. formal, nonformal, informal). I have gained the knowledge and experience in social research, essential for working with culturally diverse populations, as well as effectively functioning on a multi-disciplinary team of professionals. Additionally, my experiences working as a trainer of environmental interpreters and environmental educators have enhanced my desire to work with adolescents and young adults and furthered my interest in promoting environmentally responsible behaviours especially at outdoor recreation and ecotourism settings.
