David first encountered the SRC through the course “Världens Eko” in 2015. He found the transdisciplinary way of thinking about the world very exciting. Prior to this, David had been increasingly fascinated by attempts to go beyond the disciplinary boundaries of the social and natural sciences, particularly in regard to questions of urban planning. He believes that building bridges between disciplines is key when addressing the global challenges of the 21th century.
David holds a Bachelor’s degree in Human Geography from Stockholm University (2014-2017). Within his degree he also studied one year of global development studies which included a wide set of disciplines such as economic history, social anthropology and political science. Some of his previous academic focus has revolved around questions of urbanism and urban planning. During the summer of 2016, he was granted a scholarship to study environmental sociology through an international summer school exchange in Tianjin, China. This trip gave him new perspectives and increased his curiosity for sustainability issues.
Alongside his education, he has also been working for the city of Stockholm at the urban development exhibition “Stockholmsrummet” located at Kulturhuset in central Stockholm. His work includes guiding and educating citizens and other actors on the urban development plans for the Stockholm municipality. This work has increased his interest in ways of communicating to the public and convinced him of the importance of dialogue between different stakeholders within urban planning.
In his free time, David is a keen stand-up comedy fan. He also writes his own jokes
