Justine lives in Namibia and studied education, law and zoology. When she graduated with her PhD, she started her career working on sustainability in Africa, and worked for many years within the nexus of development, poverty reduction and conservation, all over the world. As she wandered along this path, she realised that the value system of humanity has been shaped by economic growth, without questioning the narrative of this. We had forgotten that economic growth is supposed to serve people, not the other way around. Since then she has been working on how we, as Africans, can develop Africa with a focus on wellbeing, happiness and health.
