Hi there, I’m Damien du Preez. 

I'm interested in how we can build a better world for ourselves and future generations. As a result, I focus much of my attention on climate change, sustainable cities, the just transition, degrowth, universal basic income, and human wellbeing. This interest is motivated by a deep concern for the impacts of the climate and ecological crises, particularly in the African context. In 2023, I hope to channel these interests into something concrete by launching a creative project called Bright Skies

I’m currently finishing off a BA in politics, philosophy, and economics at Stellenbosch University, following a six-month academic exchange at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In the near future, I'm hoping to continue my studies at a postgraduate level. Since late 2021, I've worked for the Centre for Research on Democracy in a managerial and communications capacity. This work taps into a further interest of mine - communicating scientific knowledge to a curious public.
