Esther Vallado

About:

My dream is a planet in which humans live in harmony with each other and their environment. Non-formal learning and nature conservation are my biggest passions.
My trainings have a strong psychological component: it's not just about becoming more respectful and connected to nature, it's about changing from within, it's about fulfilling your dreams. I invite you to experience self-discovery, inspiration, empowerment...
I try to make the world a better place, one training at a time.

Esther Vallado has 7 references for past work as a trainer.
