my nano transformation

Prof Dominika Batista PhD MSc,

climate nano transformer
earth like me

I was brought up in upper middle class intellectual family. 
Father did his postgraduate studies in Manchester, England, mother also graduated graduated

in German and French in Ljubljana. 
Parents and grandparents financially did well.

When I was growing up, I didn't lack anything.

We skied in the Alps every winter with the latest

fashionable ski equipment and every summer during the summer holidays we swam on the Adriatic coast.

That was the Yugoslav standard.

During the year we spent almost every afternoon

on grandfather’s ‘sheriff ‘style wooden weekend house

inspired by Hollywood Western movies near capital in wild nature. Every leisure activity there was associated with plants or gardening, mushroom picking, hiking in the woods, orchards, picnics. It was daily full contact with nature.

At the time I started to study, I wanted to travel abroad.

So did I, and by the end of my postgraduate studies I had already travelled to 41 countries on 4 continents.

Partly to educate myself better, partly to really explore the continents.

my new

 ecological footprint

Let us analyse my new way of life in Africa 
and what kind of ecological footprint gives to our 'common real estate' Earth? 

I do not have car. I joke, that I have a driver, because I use always the same one reliable ‘bajaj’/’tuk-tuk’ chauffeur. 
He also does the shopping once to three times per week. 
I work at home three of five days per week.

I go to university contact hours once or twice a week. 
The internet in our house I use,

if available (availability is about 50 % of time).
My husband and I live in a small house with a large garden. Electricity is not always available.

Water is also not always available. 
In the large garden and orchard, we produce only small

quantities of food, which is some salad, spices and indigenous guava and very special casimiroa fruits. 
So we’re only minimum self-sustainable,

we depend on local farmers. 
We have four fruit trees that produce quite a bit of seasonal fruit, but not nearly enough to meet our needs.
In the garden we carefully cultivate a large number of native plant subtropical species that contribute to biodiversity,

and this gives us great pleasure.
