Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
    This description of Heike Boomgaarden's work was prepared when Heike Boomgaarden was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
    Driven by the increasing estrangement of people in urban surroundings with nature and its potential for human well-being, nutrition and education as well as the ecological consequences of maltreatment towards the environment, Heike Boomgaarden introduces a new way of “eco-human” development for urban settings bringing people back in touch with the environment and (edible) nature where they live.
