Mees joined the Transition Academy Team in 2015, with the ambition to introduce as many people as possible to transition studies. She organises and coordinates Transition Academy courses, tutors participants during their case work and does communications and PR.
 
Between 2009 and 2014, Mees worked as a Knowledge and Learning Coordinator for MVO Nederland (CSR Netherlands). In close collaboration with DRIFT, she developed an international CSR programme based on the principles of Transition Management. She has broad experience at designing multi-disciplinary courses for entrepreneurs on CSR topics such as child labour and anti-corruption and worked at the Dutch Consulate in Panama advising government and companies on CSR. In 2014 Mees made a 7 month trip through Europe, in search for stories about ageing and the ageing society – a transition theme that connects her work at the Transition Academy with her personal interests.
