Engelse vlag Who?  

Our-Green-Spine is Pieter-Paul de Kluiver msc. (in origine interdisciplinary researcher: Penitentiary-law/Criminology/ Social-Psychology). Born in  Singapore at the 29th june 1958;  Expat, (Singapore, Indonesia, Iran).

My passion for “green” and “country-life” was awakened  in the relatively unspoilt parts of the  Ardennes hilly country landscape. Practical experience was gained by working on organic farms from Denmark to Greece. A tough learning process where I gathered knowledge from handling a chainsaw , to a sustainable way of building up soils,  to planting and maintaining shelterbelts, to creating microclimates, to sustainable agriculture and sustainable building and much more. After this practical learning-process I noticed that the best thing I could do was to extract key-knowledge from my experiences, put it  into a scientific & practical frame and make a life out of it. And so it  happened.  Our Green Spine and Good Life Now! are therefore branches from a tree planted some 30 years before,  branches having the same origin/ being complementary to each other. My background as interdisciplinary researcher provides a sound  foundation for the Our Green Spine  and  Good Life Now! course programmes.
