Petra de Braal

As director and founder of Solidarity University, a center of excellence for social innovation, Petra works closely with EVM. Mutual understanding and shared meaning are the two central concepts of the approach. The collaboration between the HZ and the Solidarity University ensures that these two central concepts of the social theory of a sustainable society are made very practically applicable, not only for and with students and teachers, but also by working intensively in practice with people outside the HZ. Together with professionals and volunteers she puts the theory into practice by tackling various social issues. And by doing this together we enrich the approach and the underlying theory. This is a continuous process of working and learning together. Petra graduated in Comparative Cultural Studies at Ghent University.
