Franca is an Environmental Social Scientist with a curiosity about many things in the world so we discuss topics ranging from her childhood in Germany, her research on transnational sovereignty, climate change and love of poetry and the importance of engaging each other across disciplines to both challenge and innovate.

I think I mentioned a blog on sustainable start-ups that I write for. It is called Funkenzeit and might be interesting for people who want to know more about projects in Germany http://funkenzeit.de. This project is a part of yooweedoo changemaker platform http://yooweedoo.org/
Ramona Gastl and other artists work together on the connection between freedom and loneliness. This is a teaser for ILLUSIA the short movie on freedom and loneliness https://vimeo.com/205835872 and the patreon site for the project https://www.patreon.com/illusia . We also have a facebook group that people can join https://www.facebook.com/groups/illusiacommunity/ .
You might have mentioned the Exchange before – but if you wanted to include a link http://www.xchc.co.nz/ - Preston and I are putting together an exhibition on land and water atm (for 11-17th June). If any artists would like to be a part of this: happy to chat about the concept and have them involved!
And finally, this is the organisation on renewable energy and climate change that motivated me to shift from medicine to political science http://klimadelegation.de/english/
