I am a communication designer and researcher from UNESP, Brazil. My research is focused on which ways design can empower children’s ecological wisdom and political agency as future stewards in the environmental crisis.Through a dialogical and reflexive approach, I aim to investigate the importance of storytelling, sharing how our own personal experiences brought into a broader understanding of our social relations, can affect our sense of interdependence and belonging to nature.
