Pieter Vandekerckhove

After I survived cancer I studied philosophy at the University of Ghent (MSc, BSc).
I decided to give back this knowledge to the people who need it most.
That is why I help young adults with cancer and healthcare professionals to find more fulfilment in life.
I am building the fundaments of my approach to healthcare as part of my Ph.D. at Erasmus University.
Here I develop the methods of participatory design to combine the best insights of different disciplines to improve our health.

When I had leukaemia, everything fell apart. Yet, this is the moment when I started using my super powers...  

My vision

To provide practical philosophy skills training across the world in dedicated centres where people can also experiment with life skills in life labs. The centres will be surrounded by beautiful nature.
