Merel joined Fairspace at the beginning of 2023 and is one of our trainers. She has a background in Humanistic studies and works as a teacher in sexual education. Merel lives in Utrecht, but she still likes to visit Terschelling, the island where she grew up. In her spare time, she loves to dance and watch arthouse movies.
Fairspace’ s vision is for a society in which everyone in the Netherlands, regardless of sex, race, gender or gender expression, feels safe moving through public spaces. Whether through transforming experiences on our streets, in bars and nightclubs, in schools or in the workplace, we tailor our services to the needs of our partners. Our work focuses on three impact areas: Education, Co-creation and Policy advice.
