A childhood spent exploring the beauty of nature fostered a deep passion for nature. Jana was a pioneer environmental educator. An early career in environmental science, population and world resources, evolved to further studies in sustainability and climate change; transformative and resilient thinking; and urban design. Since completing her Ph.D. in Biophilic Urban Design, Jana has been active as a biophilic designer, presenter, educator and academic author. She is a member of the global Biophilic Cities steering committee, Chair of Biophilic Cities Australia, Director of Biophilic Solutions, Director of Green Roofs Australasia and a Curtin University associate.
