  The start will be an introduction to the frameworks of decolonization. The exploration of the personal, communal and institutional realm of coloniality.

  The second session will be on dissecting colonial mechanisms and strategizing around in common lived experiences and institutional hurdles.

  Writer Danny carries a bachelor's degree in a.o. Artificial Intelligence. Furthermore he has been invited to speak at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and at a global leadership summit at University of the Free State (UFS) South Africa on matters of social justice, equity, community building, strategy and business.

  In his time as a student he was one of the co-founders of the student organisation Family of Academic Minds (FAM), which is a student platform for first generation university students with a migration background. FAM serves as a physical safe space and a buddy program in which students will be paired with students from the next year onward and so creating a network that grows navigational capital and belonging. As of now he works at the Vrije University as a diversity officer and at Echo - Expertise center for diversity policy as a management consultant.


  Currently Danny is writing two books. The first is called Racism - a full circle which is a book that highlights the value chain of racism analysed through de-colonial perspective. The second is called Roots and Flowers which is a book on spirituality and living.
