Ursel Biester


Understanding Global Sustainability Challenges

Ursel enjoys accompanying people in their personal and professional development and does so in her role as trainer, facilitator and coach. She studied adult education (MA) at TU Kaiserslautern as a long-distance study course and creative business design and social innovation at the Kaospilot School in Denmark. She worked as a consultant for Design Thinking at a Berlin based company, supporting corporations in their innovation processes, has written several self-study materials with a focus on self-reflection as a freelancer, worked as a job-coach and then founded her own company Trekstones with which she is realizing EU-funded projects with a focus on transformative learning. Transformative learning theory is an educational approach concerned with understanding and facilitating profound change at both individual and societal levels. As the UNESCO says: "Education should be transformative and allow us to make informed decisions and take individual and collective action to change our societies and care for the planet." (https://en.unesco.org/themes/education-sustainable-development). Ursel agrees with this agenda and strives to make her work a contribution to it. She has trained people both online and offline.
