Maria Viota
University of the Basque Country, Leioa

I am a biologist (UPV/EHU) with postgraduate education in Conservation Biology (Diploma of Advanced Studies, University of Seville) and Environment and Sustainability (Master's Degree, UPV/EHU). My interests are oriented on the one hand, to research in Ecology and Conservation as scientific disciplines contributing to Sustainability Sciences that can provide answers to ecological and social problems, and on the other hand, to the possibilities from Education as a key approach for the transformation towards more sustainable and just societies. As a result, at present my interests are in the field of sustainability sciences and emerge from the intersection of ecology, biology and environmental sciences. I hold experience in environmental consultancy, research in terrestrial ecology and education for sustainability. I am currently an independent PhD Candidate in collaboration with the UNESCO Chair on Sustainable Development and Environmental Education of the UPV/EHU examining the contribution of green spaces to the sustainable well-being.
