Having been brought up in a different country every two years since birth, Bo-Alex Fredvik is still searching for his national identity. He claims to be Brazilian by birth, French by language, Canadian by education, Latino by heart, American by opportunity, Swedish by culture, and yet British by humour. He thus fluently speaks English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. Having studied Environmental Biology at McGill (Canada) and Molecular Biology at Uppsala University (Sweden), Bo completed his M.Sc. at the University of Quebec in Montreal (Canada), specialising in forestry. He has worked on forest policy while at World Conservation Union (IUCN) and at the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity. He is presently researching the impacts of terrestrial carbon sink policies on forest biodiversity.
