George Biesmans is a linguist and political scientist with a BA in Spanish, Arabic, and Italian from Durham University and an MA in International Affairs from the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. He’s had an eclectic career so far, spanning climate and nature policy and communication, conflict and peacebuilding, and education. As a certified forest bathing guide, he’s also deeply passionate about supporting others to cultivate their relationship with the more-than-human world. Home has been many places for George, most recently, the wild, wet coasts of Vancouver Island in Canada. He never feels more at home than when he’s in the wild, be it camping under the stars, hiking mountain trails, or simply wandering under the forest canopy. When he’s not outdoors, he’s cheering on his favorite football (soccer!) team, singing songs from musicals, or trying to play the piano.
