My name is Sofia and I am from Portugal but living in Santiago-Chile. For more than 20 years I have been a project developer on a diversity of technical and creative projects and subjects including sustainable design, co-design and public participation, social design, public space design and urban regeneration. I was also professor in a Portuguese university for 17 years. I heard from PAAJAF at the UN online volunteering site and it grabbed my attention because of its vision of education. I think education is one of the fundamental pillars of the society and should be a universal right to everyone. Education plays a crucial role in the dissemination of opportunities for the well-being of the humanity and is one of the fundamental factors of development of societies. By becoming a volunteer I hope I can use my qualifications, skills and experience to help PAAJAF in certain strategic issues regarding education.
