Maria works as a consultant in Human Resources, and in 2019, she certified as Embodied Facilitator and has devoted her work to supporting change, learning, envisioning and executing.

Karen is passionate about sensory-based learning, outdoor learning and climate activism. In 2014 she co-founded the Green Free School in Copenhagen, an innovative primary school that focused on sustainability. In 2018 Karen left the school to focus on research and workshops, and to reshape the radical tools developed at the Green Free School for use in other educational settings. Out of this work has grown the seedling of the Snail Academy.
