Karlijn joined DRIFT in 2016 as an action researcher and advisor. Her topics of interest include urban inclusive change and just transitions. She applies these lenses to a broad range of topics such as democratic innovation, health, housing and climate adaptation. A common thread in her current projects is building communities of practices around reflexive monitoring.
Karlijn loves to design, coordinate and facilitate tailor-made courses for the Transition Academy. Over time she has developed into a skilled facilitator both online and offline. In her workshops, she likes to combine the basics of transition thinking and the role of learning with reflecting on organisational strategy and personal roles in transitions.
Karlijn has an academic background in Urban Sociology (MSc, Erasmus University) and Cultural Anthropology (BSc, Utrecht University). During her studies and fieldwork abroad, she acquired strong qualitative research skills.
When not at DRIFT, you will most probably find her running, road-biking or dancing salsa.
