Matteo Giusti is a researcher at Högskolan i Gävle. He has a PhD in Sustainability Science from the Stockholm Resilience Centre and over the past 10 years, he has studied how to cities and towns that allow people to value nature enough to protect it. How do people connect to nature and what kind of experiences they need to do so? And how can the everyday habitat promote social wellbeing and ecological health at the same time? These are some of the questions driving Matteo’s research, writing, and public speaking. He aims to promote sustainable civilizations by unifying human and natural habitats. He combines psychology, spatial design, sustainability science, and systems thinking to find ways to develop sustainable civilizations. He collaborates with educational organisations, architecture firms, and urban planning offices to implement his research in practice.
