Martina has been moving between the worlds of academia and field work, looking for ways to operationalize knowledge so that it can be applied in the real world. Fascinated by people, she studied a Bachelor in Psychology with a particular interest in how we can build a society that really listens and cares. At the same time she wants to understand how we can psychologically adapt to thrive in a world marked by rapid innovation and incredible technological advancements.
Martina believes that we need to claim agency and take responsibility for our knowledge. This desire to contribute to real change lead her to play a key role in setting up an NGO in Liberia, using a holistic approach to address various interconnected issues. Now she is back in her native Switzerland, starting a Masters in Philosophy and History of Knowledge and taking the production lead of the Global Good Congress.
