"In the work that I am doing, I am afforded a unique opportunity to be an interloper, hopping between professions and disciplines, visiting the language and the details of many points of reference in our world."
(Nora Bateson)

I support the learning and development processes of individuals, groups and organisations. My main areas of focus are peacebuilding, human rights education, the development of intercultural competencies and combatting hate speech and discrimination.

Edouard PORTEFAIX has 8 references for past work as a trainer.
