Dr Irena Ateljevic is Terra Meera’s founderess and visionary. She is an acclaimed academic and researcher in the fields of sustainable development through community and individual empowerment. Irena firmly believes in connecting theory with practice and her 20 years of experience has led her to express her passion for social justice and human development in numerous projects on economic and social transformation that have taken her all around the world, from Croatia, her home, to New Zealand and the South Pacific, to China and India.
Her writings on the transmodern paradigm shift have inspired making of a documentary movie about change-makers, called Transmodernity in which she also features (together with her daughter) as one of change-makers.
Before reconnecting back with her roots in Croatia, she worked as a professor at the Environmental Sciences department of Wageningen University in the Netherlands, where she gained a reputation as passionate and soulful teacher and colleague. Currently, she collaborates with various institutions, universities and NGOs on the sustainable development of islands and coastal areas in Dalmatia.
