Lèneke is an energetic connector at the intersection of Science and Society. Curious about questions that exist in society and that are a challenge to find answers to together with researchers and students. Good listening is an indispensable skill, just like being open to other new ideas and insights. Being in and with nature gives her peace and relaxation to recharge again. She experiences every season intensely by looking, smelling, tasting and feeling what grows and blooms in her environment. She shares a passion for cooking with her lovely family. Preparing a beautiful dinner together is an activity she enjoys immensely.
Originally trained as a visual arts teacher, the participative understanding of what we see and experience still motivates her. The work for the Science Shop fits in perfectly with that.
