Being the Editor of the BRaS-Blog Interview Section brings me so much joy, especially because I have the honor to work with so many committed and inspiring people. Today, exciting news: our first video! Transdisciplinarity is one of the core values of BRaS and today’s interview is an example of how this is one of the keys to better understand complex phenomena, such as education and its political implications. I sincerely thank Dr. David Meek for the insightful talk, as well as Luísa Torres for conducting the interview. Bellow David’s bio, you will find the link to the interview on our YouTube channel. Check it out!
