Susanne Börner’s research focuses on youth everyday agency, disaster risk and resource insecurity, urban well-being, and youth mental health. With an interest in participatory research methods and research in the Global South, her Marie Curie Global Fellowship (2019-2023) explored young people’s local knowledge and social practices related to the resource scarcity and chronic disaster risk (e.g., flooding and landslides) in the urban periphery of Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has an interest in applied and impact-oriented research to identify pathways for integrating youth knowledge into public policies for a sustainable and healthy urban development.
