Sofie Joosse
Researcher in Environmental Communication

Presentation

I am interested in how people use, and relate to the environment, how they talk about and make sense of their relation to the environment and what this means for social change processes for sustainability. 

Background

I received my degree in Rural Sociology from the University of Wageningen, the Netherlands, and my PhD in Human Geography from the University of Uppsala (December 2014). Throughout the years I have worked as a lecturer and organizer of a variety of courses in Environmental Communication and Rural Development at SLU, and Human Geography at UU.
