Hi there! My name is Simone and I come from Portugal, but currently I am living in Austria. I am a Psychologist, specialized in Sport Psychology, but as well postgraduated in Waldorf Pedagogy. I was always curious about traveling abroad and living in other countries was always a goal for me to reach. After University, I decided to participate in diferent Youth Exchanges mainly in Europe, and as well to make a Leonardo Da Vinci in Italy, in the field of the Sport Psychology at the Unviersitá Degli Studi di Padova. After that I went to Germany to be an European Volunteer at Parzivalschulen, a Waldorf School in Karlsruhe for one year long. Here I got to know diferent approaches to education, from Waldorf Pedagogy to Montessori and Forest Pedagogy. Since then I started to plan a way to find out, research and learn a bit more about alternative educational projects. I got the possibility to organize my own first travel and research project with a co-financial fund from the "Youth In Action Program",about alternative education in Europe. I started my journey through an Interrail with a global ticket for Europe, visiting Waldorf, Montessori and Forest Kindergartens and schools, some Ecovillages and other Projects that promote a sustainable lifestyle and an holistic education.I was travelling in diferent countries in Europe, like Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Switzerland, France, Spain and Portugal. In the Summer of 2015, I started the visits worldwide, with a first experience and opportunity at the Green School Bali, in Indonesia, participating as a Volunteer. In the next years, the Globetrotter Project pretends to continue to travel and visit more Alternative Schools or Communities Worldwide.
