Céline Artal

World Explorer and Founder of Nexus Humani

Pragmatic idealism into action… My motivations are to create meaningful pathways and intersections between civilisations, to connect the dots between institutional mandates, communities and people, and to build dynamic environments for knowledge generation and actions for Earth protection.

While journeying into the world and learning from indigenous peoples and diverse civilisations and environments, I have come to understand that today´s biggest challenge is to redefine the contour of the people-planet paradigm with ambitious human transformation goals and far-reaching partner ecosystems. Above all, we, as humans, must have the courage, the humility and the determination to deeply look into the ideologies and belief systems that have a destructive effects on our unique and awe-inspiring home, the Earth.

Nexus Humani´s consulting and experiential learning interventions for Earth protection are a modus operandi for change and transformation that integrate indigenous insights and teachings on the sacredness of the people-planet-cosmos axis.

I thrive in multicultural, ambitious, forward-looking and creative professional environments.

“My students and I at HEC Montreal thoroughly enjoyed your presentations on the Human Development Index and the work of “PNUD”. Not only were the presentations very informative and thought provoking but the delivery was very well done as well. We hope to have you again as a guest speaker in our International Affairs Program.”
