Paul started as a journalist, then worked for thirteen years at COS Overijssel, a regional knowledge and expertise in the field of development issues and international cooperation, but above all Paul Hendriksen is an ambassador of doing-thinking. In Deventer he put sustainability ideas into practice: Transition Towns. Was initiator of the association Aardehuizen Oost Nederland, a collective enterprise to build a project of 23 houses inspired by the ‘Earthship’ concept in Olst, north of Deventer, Overijssel.
He has expertise in consultancy, project development, organisation and training on sustainability issues. And specialisation in the field of community processes aimed at sustainable development, Transition Towns and related bottom-up initiatives; lectures, presentations and workshops on local resilience and a wide range of sustainability issues, from the philosophical and historical to the practical level (and back); I profoundly believe in Added Value Afterwards.
